Remember you are not solely
responsible for making the world a
better place…clearly that is a task
too heavy for one person. But at
times when we cannot lead the way
we can share and shout about those
who lead the way at that moment.
Because being part of the force of
good is our shared responsibility. …read more

We cultivate love when we allow our
most vulnerable and powerful selves
to be deeply seen and known, and
when we honor the spiritual
connection that grows from that
offering with trust, respect, kindness
and affection. Love is not something
we give or get; it is something that
we nurture and grow, a connection
that can only be cultivated between
two people when it exists within each
one of them – we can only love others
as much as we love ourselves. Shame,
blame, disrespect, betrayal, and the
withholding of affection damage the
roots from which love grows. Love can
only survive these injuries if they are
acknowledged, healed and rare. …read more

when we take time to understand the
past, the reasons, lessons and
learnings, we come to a sense of
peace with what’s gone before, and
can become fully present to the now,
to our inner wisdom gently guiding
us forward, on how to be all that we
are… be gentle with self, let go and
let love guide the way. …read more

It’s impossible to accurately test scientifically whether someone has just smoked a joint. They can only estimate to a certain probability but how can you be convicted on probability?

Currently there is no test to prove you have just smoked dagga. They can only test for THC that has been metabolized and stored in the fat cells and that are released in blood. That is why you can test positive for weeks to a month after you last joint.

Nobody can tell if you are high even if they see your blood shot eyes. If you don’t want to reveal it to any person you don’t have to.

Mind-blowing fact; Even an abusive user of dagga burns half as much plant matter than what is burned by the average tobacco smoker.

The average tobacco smoker consumes 15.5 cigarettes a day. 15.5 cigarettes contain 11.315 grams of tobacco.

I personally consume up to 1 – 3 grams of dagga in one or two days. …read more

Are you listening to the whisper of the earth, the need to reconnect, the sense that we are so small on this immense planet yet hold such a responsibility for it. Is it time to reconnect, to find something greater than the urgent emails that needs to be send or the incessant phone to be answered.
Under the big old sky we find stillness, the expansion, that moment when you feel part of everything yet at the same time so insignificant. How extradinary how immense this planet is. We have one chance, one life, to explore, to see, to conserve, to help. Be astounded and be amazed… be there, be the difference!

Comment on UnFairlady’s Wall: As an intelligent woman, I am thoroughly insulted by your accusations of hysteria, & so are most European Consumers who are well-informed about the GMO issues & unequivocally reject these products. You should issue a formal apology to your readers. I hope you are held liable for misinforming Parents & the Public about the so-called safety of GMOs at a time when rates of Obesity, Cancer, Immuno-Deficiency Diseases, Birth Defects, Chronic Respiratory Diseases, Allergies & Heart Disease are rapidly escalating in South Africa & USA, especially in Young Children. Or do you intend, in your efforts at “unbiased journalism”, to issue a 4 Page article on The Dangers of GMOs?

Value of the South African dagga market compared to Uruguay

Uruguay is the first country to legalize & regulate the sale of dagga at $1 per gram to combat crime and right the wrongs of prohibition.

Recently we calculated the current market value of dagga in South Africa with various pricing we currently pay for dagga but in this article we compare the market value with the fixed price set by Uruguay to see what kind of figure we could expect if South Africa was to follow Uruguay as an example.

It is expected that Uruguay’s dagga trade will have a market value of $30 Million to $40 Million that’s about R391 Million.

Value-of-dagga-in-SA-compared-with-Uraguay-Pricing

The South African dagga trade is enormous & mind-blowing. The dagga confiscated by the South African police between 2012 and 2013 is valued at R19.56 Billion. This if we were to assume that all dagga is sold at a fixed price of $1 per gram.

The estimated value of the dagga that makes it to end users are estimated to be valued at R176.04 Billion at a fixed price of $1 per gram.

The estimated value of all dagga that is brought into or grown in South Africa is estimated to be valued at R195.6 Billion.

It is safe to say that more dagga is confiscated by the South African police than what is sold in Uruguay.

These calculation only include dagga that is sold for recreational / medicinal use. What do you think the value of the industrial dagga market is? I think it’s much more than the recreational market purely based on the fact that dagga has many more industrial uses.
