This post is to educate people about our fight for freedom of use of Cannabis (Dagga, it's slang nickname) here in South Africa and to honor The Dagga Couple and Julian Stobbs that fought the fight for us. This started with me seeing the YouTube video I've linked prompting me to share it along with some info. When I googled for the most relevant info I see that our Dagga Couple in on Wikipedia, how cool is that?! Here's the link, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dagga_Couple
The first bit of information they give pretty much sums it up...."The Dagga Couple or DC is a pro-cannabis lobbyist organisation from South Africa founded by Julian Stobbs and Myrtle Clarke after the two were arrested for the possession and dealing in the substance in 2010. Rather than plead guilty, the couple decided instead to sue seven sectors of government that maintained and enforced the policy of cannabis prohibition in the country resulting in what has been described locally as the Trial of the Plant in 2017. Stobbs was fatally shot during an armed robbery at his home in Sunrella, Gauteng on 3 July 2020. Clarke, who was with him at the time of the incident escaped unharmed."
I've posted this in Witness because I believe that Julian and Myrtle are true witnesses and champions for us in the fight for legalization of Cannabis in South Africa for all!
I hope you enjoy the tune :)
