Jeremy Acton on Dagga Party's application to have cannabis legalised

50



The Dagga Party applied this week to the high courts in Cape Town and in Pretoria for cannabis to be legalised as they say this could give the country’s economy a multibillion-rand boost. According to the Dagga Party the legalisation of cannabis in designated restaurants and bars will attract more tourists to the country. The party wants sections of the Drug and Drug Trafficking Act and of the Medicines and Related Substance Act to be amended so that cannabis can be used for medicinal purposes as this plant according to the party can be used in the treatment of different ailments. Joining us in our Cape Town studio this morning is Jeremy Acton, the leader of the Dagga Party.
