The popo, the stoner and the price

Nowadays dagga smokers are found from Cape Town to Johannesburg and everywhere in between and even neighbouring countries especially Swaziland & Lesotho. The number one illicit herb in the world has become the most popular recreational “drug”. It is even giving tobacco and alcohol a run for its money.

In South Africa dagga prohibition is taken so seriously that not even a cannabinoid filled fart is missed undetected. Recently a university student discovered you can test how much marijuana is used within a suburb by testing a neighbourhood, a complex or even a house’s main sewage line.

In South Africa dagga is so potent that officers and even government officials who come near the bud wear hard hats and bullet proof vests. As seen on Below The Lion.

The facts, estimations, statistics, probabilities and anecdotal math speculation.
By 2010 there were 1116 police stations across South Africa employing 150513 officers. This organization managed to confiscate 2000 metric tons of dagga between 2012 and 2013. That is 2 billion grams of dagga.

Recently a news article boasted about a si

ngle police station from an average suburb that managed to arrest 10 persons for dagga possession on a single day!

In that article and so many others you commonly see that there is a task forces that deal with dagga policing. Although the narcotic division has been disbanded years ago there are still groups within the police serve that are on the frontline in the war not only against people who choose to use a safer alternative to alcohol and tobacco but against a wonder plant that is a herb comparable to nutmeg.

In most of the photos used in reports of dagga busts you will always see that there are about 5 police officers per dagga suspect. The ratio of cops that are out there looking for a stoner is 5 to 1.

If we start calculating with these variables and introduce a random function the true cost of the war on dagga becomes clear.

One police station is able to arrest between 1700 to 1900 persons for dagga per year.
1116 police stations are able to arrest between 1050000 to 1140000 persons for dagga per year.

As we do not know the exact cost incurred by the police for each dagga arrest we could speak of the persons arrested as units that could later be multiplied by the cost. We can for instance use the minimum units which are the total number of dagga arrest per year to calculate the cost of housing dagga convicts and we can use the cops-stoner ratio to calculate the cost incurred by the task force.

Because it’s likely that there are five police officers involved in almost every dagga arrest the cop-stoner ratio is 5:1.

We come to the conclusion that the South African police spend approximately 1050000 to 5720000 units per year.

Let’s speculate that the total cost of arresting a single person for dagga possession is R1000 the South African police spend between R1.05 Billion to R5.72 Billion on the war on dagga per year.

We recently calculated that the value of dagga confiscated by the South African police between 2012 and 2013 is about R18 Billion when using Uruguay’s fixed price of $1 or R9.77

It was also calculated that the total value of dagga that evades the police in the same period is about R 176.04 Billion using the Uruguay model.

Ultimately this means that the police spend a pessimistically calculated R5.72 Billion to make an R18 Billion debt in an R 195.6 Billion market.

Do you think R1 spent on dagga prohibition is money well invested?



Please do criticize and correct were needed.

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.


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.


One People’s Public Trust Lawfully Forecloses Corporations, Banks and Governments for Operating Slavery and Private Money Systems

By Andy Whiteley

Co-Founder of Wake Up World and Being of the Creator

Many of you have heard… many have not. Announced publicly on 25 December 2012, the system of Corporate-Governmental rule has been foreclosed. Legally foreclosed… via one of its own mechanisms. The “Powers That Be” are now the “Powers That Were”. All debt has been erased and corporations – including but not limited to Corporate Governments and Banks – have been foreclosed.

Sure, they may continue to play along in hopes we will play along with them. But thanks to a series of UCC (Uniform Commercial Code) filings made by the One People’s Public Trust (known as OPPT) the choice is now yours to make. A new framework for social governance is now in effect; a fact that has been ratified by the ‘legal’ framework of its corporate-controlled predecessor.

Systemically speaking… WE ARE FREE!!


(Get comfortable folks – this is a long article but it’s one you can’t afford to miss!!)

One People’s Public Trust

The conclusion of legal actions taken by the OPPT have generated a lot of excitement. And rightly so!The potential for positive change it creates is MOMENTUS!

But before we get into the implications I’d like to present to you the “what happened” and “how” of the situation.

Corporate-controlled Government and corporate-controlled Media refuse to announce their own demise – for obvious reason. So as informed global citizens, I believe our role is to understand what happened and how, so that we can inform others… and finally start the process of worldwide change we’ve all been waiting for.

But First, A Reality Check

Before I go on, allow me to state a few facts up front.

1) Governments are were Corporations. The Corporate Government phenomenon is not only demonstrated by the way “governments” behave as Beneficiaries (not as Trustees) of the government Trust, but the paper-trail also proves it! The United States, Canada, Australia, The United Kingdom, France, Italy, Brazil, Japan, South Africa…. and the list goes on…. all are US-based corporate entities, registered as such with the United States Security & Exchanges Commission… and operating as such at our expense. “The system” is oligarchical in nature, in that it is geared only to profit “the few” while the rest of us work to support it.

2) Persons are were corporations: At birth, a birth certificate application is signed by your parents which is used by Corporate Government to commence a Trust in your name. This Trust is used as collateral, and a collateral account is created and funded in your name. You are the Beneficiary of this Trust… but no-one tells you it exists. If you do not complete a Will by the age of 7, Corporate Government declares you deceased – under admiralty law of all things! – and you are officially considered by the system to be “lost at sea”. Seriously. Corporate Government then assumes financial control of your estate, and they – aware that most of us do in fact live beyond 7 – continue to treat us as living slaves. The funds generated by monetizing your life – using you as collateral – are loaned to you when you apply for bank finance, mortgages etc. You are then forced to work to repay those funds – plus interest – back to the system. Legally, you have no rights because you’re considered “dead” by the age of 7. You lose.

(Click here for more information on the Government Trust relationship).

3) Mass media is the tool used by Corporate Governments to deliver propaganda directly to your home. It is used to manipulate public perceptions of Corporate Government actions and inactions, to reinforce social norms, limits and behaviours, and to sell you crap by creating a “need” and then providing you with a product to fulfill it. And it isn’t limited just to Media; the psychology of the “old” paradigm is reinforced through educational and religious institutions as well.

Corporations, Governments and Media all tell the same lies. They are all part of the same beast.

4) As a result, the world’s economic structure is was a mechanism of mass slavery. Slavery is a system under which people are treated as property, and are forced to work. Slaves are held against their will from the time of their capture, purchase or birth, and deprived of the right to leave, or to refuse to work.

Sound familiar?

You were born into “the system” without any say in how it works. You were raised and taught to contribute to the system. You must work exhaustive hours in the system, and you must pay taxes to the system. You must adhere to the rules of the system – most of which relate to property and ownership – or you will be punished by the system. By design, the system will deliver abundance only to a select few, and many others will go hungry. But if you don’t like it, you cannot leave the system. The system “owns” everything, everyone and everywhere.

Until now, you had one option: play along. It’s like living in a casino with no exit. And the house always wins.

When Were Our Governments Corporatized?

It all started with the introduction of the Reserve Bank system. When the Federal Reserve Act was implemented in the United States in 1913, Congressman Charles Lindberg warned the US Congress in a Congressional Record dated, December 22, 1913 (vol. 51) that an inevitable consequence of instituting the Federal Reserve system was that – using their power to inflate and deflate an economy – corporations would take control.

In Congressman Lindbergh’s words: “From now on, depressions will be scientifically created”.

And they are. In 1929s, the “Powers That Were” deliberately crashed the stock market. How? Fluctuations in the stock market are driven by emotion. Prior to the 1929 crash, excitement was created in the market which created a period of inflation. Those in control unloaded their holdings at premium prices, then created a panic in the market. And as prices plummeted, they bought back their holdings at fire-sale prices – and eliminated their ailing competition in the process.

In short, the Great Depression was artificially generated so the large corporations that controlled the stock market could profit from lending governments the money required to recover from its orchestrated collapse. Sovereign nations were ultimately forced to sign onto debt agreements which, by their nature, could never be paid off. And as national debts began to mount, the “slavery by debt” paradigm was formalized…. and corporations took control.

Today, Corporate Governments continue to masquerade as real government. The Reserve Bank system (which now dominates western economies) continues to drive periods of ‘market-boom’ and ‘market-bust’ by strategically tightening and relaxing the supply of money and credit. The current Global Financial Crisis is a perfect example. And all the while, establishment Media plays its part by influencing the emotion of the stock market and facilitating political untruths.

But the complex campaign undertaken by the OPPT has forced the corporate system into foreclosure. All corporations, including Government and Banking systems, have been rendered extinct using their own mechanisms of commercial regulation. Lawfully speaking, it’s a case of out with the old trusts and in with the new! 

So Is This The “Overthrow Of Government”?

No – it is the overthrow of the corporations who have until now masqueraded as government. If you understand that “governments” are actually corporations that have overwritten the constitutions of sovereign nations by stealth, their demise can only be seen as long overdue.

The fraud of government is real. And finally – by their failure to rebut the UCC claims – the entire corporate government complex stands guilty of fraud, treason and slavery. By international law, the OPPT has the right to claim remedy on behalf of the One People for those crimes. They chose to foreclose on and terminate the corporations, banks and governments responsible, and to confiscate all assets and infrastructures of these entities – including all the gold and silver held as assets by the banking system – and place them in the hands of the One People.

Don’t think of it as an overthrow, think of it as the recovery of stolen property. The actions of the One People’s Public Trust essentially reclaim what is ours, as sovereign beings of this planet. Universal Law, Common Law and the UCC are now the governing law of the planet.

(I will later describe in detail the mechanisms implemented by the OPPT to replace the necessary functions of governance).

UCC: The Bible Of Commerce

The UCC is the “bible” of commerce; it precisely dictates the manner in which international trade and commerce should be enacted. In fact, the entire commercial system pivots around UCC law. If your mortgage is foreclosed on or your car is repossessed, the bank uses the UCC process to do so.

While UCC law remains the domain of corporations and their operatives, one of the trustees of OPPT was professionally involved in UCC law for some time, and understands intimately how the “Powers That Were” manipulated the UCC to control the United States financial system at a very high level.

UCC expert, mother, and OPPT spearhead Heather Ann Tucci-Jarraf used the foreclosure of her own home as a test case. She challenged the foreclosure through UCC process, and in doing so discovered – put very simply – that the U.S. court system invariably supports the corporate system.

Not surprising really, given that 99% of our laws relate to ownership… or commerce.

After exercising extreme prudence, the OPPT concluded that the corporations operating under the guise of the people’s governments and financial systems were committing treason against the people of this planet without the people’s knowing, willing and intentional consent. The final report from the investigation can be found here.

So… in order to foreclose on “the system”, the Trustees of OPPT set a trap using the legal structure provided to them BY “the system”.

How Did The Trustees Achieve Foreclosure?

The OPPT is managed by Trustees Caleb Skinner, Hollis Randall Hillner and Heather Ann Tucci-Jarraf. The OPPT was created when the Trustees bonded themselves to – and as a result resumed – the trust that was framed in the original US Constitution of 1776; the constitution that was abandoned when the United States government was corporatized in 1933.

The OPPT then bonded every individual on the planet to this Trust as the Beneficiaries in equity, known as “the One People, created by The Creator”. By doing so, the Trustees framed a Trust that has a superior claim to any other – the Trust between the Creator and the “states of being” of Earth. The “states of being” of Earth are the beneficiaries of the Creator as the custodians of the Creator’s manifestations on Earth. Lawfully speaking, there can be no higher claim than that of the One People’s Public Trust… except for one made by the Creator.

Our planet’s resources – specified in the UCC filings to be the world’s gold and silver – cannot therefore be owned, sold to us for a price, metered out in ‘salary’ quantities to enslave us, or withheld to create poverty or destitution. Under the One People’s Public Trust, we all have equity. Our planet’s resources now belong to each of us in equal measure. That is our birth right. Now it is law.

Between 2011 and 2012, the Trustees lodged a complex series of filings with the UCC on behalf of its Beneficiary. Full details of the OPPT’s filings with the UCC can be found on their website: Be warned: it is very heavy legal reading and designed for the purposes of legal noticing and disclosure, not for communicating OPPT’s actions or their implications to the general public. However the Trustees are working directly with the global ‘alternative media’ community to ensure the public receive accurate, clear and relevant information.

To summarise these documents:

Understanding that corporations, governments and banks are one and the same, an “Order of Finding and Action” was filed against the “the debtor”, a legal entity created via the UCC process which encompasses all corporate entities. The filings claim that the Debtor “knowingly, willingly and intentionally committed treason” by “owning, operating, aiding and abetting private money systems” and “operating Slavery Systems used against… citizens without their knowing, willing and intentional consent”.

UCC filings are public records, and follow standard administrative processes. When facing a claim, an entity (in this case “the Debtor”) is given the right of rebuttal. If a rebuttal is not received within the required timeframe, a default action then applies, followed by termination of that entity; in this case, on the grounds that it failed to rebut charges of treason by “the One People”.

The important thing to understand here is that a UCC filing stands as law if it remains unrebutted. And in this case, the OPPT Trustees ensured they created a legal situation in which the individuals and entities that form “the debtor” had no ability to rebut. How could they? The claims of slavery and fraud are true.

Of course, no rebuttal was received.

The ‘Debtor’ is therefore guilty of treason.

As remedy, corporations are foreclosed and their assets re-claimed.

The wealth of our planet is returned to “the One People”.

All corporate debt is erased.

“The system” is terminated.

The public record shows it.

The UCC filing stands as international law.

By the system’s own terms, it no longer exists.

We are free!!

So What Does All This Mean?

Lawfully, nobody can stand as a superior authority between you and your relationship with the Creator. Having removed the control-mechanisms of economy and government, the One People’s Public Trust leaves individuals in full liability, being personally responsible for themselves and for ensuring the free-will rights of others. There is no longer a structural chain of command. No rules. No corporations to hide behind. You are – as the Creator intended – a Being and a guardian of our planet and its inhabitants.

It’s a MASSIVE paradigm shift, and one that will no doubt take some time to be realised in full.

The systemic barriers that inhibited our free will and choices have now been removed, which poses challenges to the way we view ourselves and the way we make choices in our own lives. We now live – on paper at least – in a system of self-responsibility. The OPPT filings register this in perpetuity, and in such a way that your free will can never be taken away without your knowing consent.

Until now, our existence under the former slavery system has been a constant struggle; a struggle to balance work and family commitments; a struggle just to “make ends meet”, to “afford” a place to live – a place in which to exist.

But in a world of ABUNDANCE designed specifically by the Creator to provide for our needs, this struggle was not a natural state of being. Rather it was the result of psychological warfare played out against us. And it worked! It kept us humans under control, kept us working like good little slaves, and ensured the profits kept rolling in for the privileged few in “power”.

But today, by its own terms, “the system” no longer exists.

Many of us saw “the system” for what it was. Many did not. Many didn’t believe that “the system” was even a system. Many will realise it shortly.

Regardless, as the demise of the old paradigm takes root and becomes apparent in our societies, a psychological change must happen within all of us. It may seem overwhelming, but we humans have dealt with paradigm change before; consider the internal and psychological change required of the African American slave race when the system of involuntary servitude was abolished… of the German people when the Berlin Wall was ordered down in 1989… of the citizens of the former Soviet Union at its dissolution in 1991… of the Egyptian people who removed their dictator in 2011… and of the Icelandic people who imprisoned their corrupt bankers and politicians and re-wrote their constitution in 2012….

This type of psychological revolution is not new. But it does pose many personal challenges.

This is a time to be brave, and to be bravely YOU. In the absence of a controlling structure we must each take control of our destinies, and of the destiny of our planet. We must learn to make choices for ourselves again, and start to create the world WE want to live in.

Just like new parents, we must accept that life will not be the same as it was… and in the absence of a “rule book” we will attune to our instincts and learn to co-operate in new ways….. together.

Why Can’t I See The Change??

Be patient… you will. But first, we need to identify how the actions of OPPT change the lawful landscape, and how that relates to us.

Will the old corporate system go down fighting? Of course it will! Corporate-controlled Governments are going through the motions as though nothing has changed. And if you continue to accept their system of debt slavery, I’m sure the “Powers That Were” will happily continue to accommodate you!

But don’t be fooled: they know what has happened. They know they have been foreclosed. They know the game is over. It is now international law.

We have the freedom to peacefully not co-operate with the old system. It is time to exercise that freedom.

If it seems strange that the visible “governments” are still masquerading as such, bear in mind…. visible governments are corporate puppets, and were never really calling the shots. At this point, the former owners want us to believe it is ‘business as usual’. They have relied heavily on secrecy until now. They will keep pretending to the very end. That is just their way.

OPPT Trustee Heather Ann Tucci-Jarraf provided the following statement in a recent Freedom Radio interview that summarizes her plan to address this matter:

“For those wondering about OPPT’s response to the actions or inactions of those people we can visibly see, it is the wizards and the big-dogs behind the curtain that I am coming for… and they know it. In absolute love and peace, with absolute gratitude and grace… Heather.”

Managing “Old System” Actions Against You

With the dissolution of the debt/slavery system, any fictional debt you supposedly owed to that system was also dissolved. Think about this for a minute!

To facilitate your smooth transition out of the old system, you will need to understand what immediate remedy you can apply to “old system” actions that are currently being undertaken against you.

In two recent Wake Up World articles, we discussed a pre-OPPT method of re-asserting your authority on the Corporate Government mechanism (read Part 1 & Part 2). This method was rooted in the knowledge that (1) the former governments were corporations, and (2) the onus is on anyone claiming the authority of legitimate government to prove it.

You can view a real life case-study of this method in Scott Bartle’s documentary What the FUQ? Frequently Unanswered Questions of the “Australian Government”

Generically, the crux of this challenge was:

“You have made a claim on me, and I am happy to comply with your demand… however I would like to ascertain that I am dealing with the right people. Please demonstrate to me that you represent true government as constituted at the creation of this country.”

In this situation, once the Corporate Government entity failed to demonstrate its legitimacy, control of that interaction could be assumed by you by introducing your own Terms and Conditions under which any interaction between you and that entity may continue.

In a post-OPPT world, your process for challenging the authority of alleged ‘Corporate agents’ (including those claiming to represent Government) is essentially:

I would be happy to comply with your demand… however in UCC Law there is a filing that remains unrebutted which foreclosed upon the entity you claim to represent. You are now operating on your own personal liability. Please cease your claim on me. If you decide to pursue this claim again, any future interactions between us will be under the following conditions…”

Remembering that the agent no longer represents a corporate entity, a Courtesy Notice should be provided to the individual, including the ‘Terms & Conditions’ under which you will accept any future interactions. This both informs them, and allows them the opportunity to withdraw their unlawful claim against you. If the agent initiates further contact with you, they trigger a personal contract between you by indicating their acceptance of the terms you provided.

If a second agent of the same former corporation contacts you about the same claim, repeat the process with that individual also. Remember, corporations no longer exist. You are only dealing with other individuals.

Detailed guidelines for creating your own Courtesy Notice and Terms and Conditions are available at The power is there for YOU to enact.

Public awareness of the new paradigm will take time to manifest in our society. Until the implications of the One People’s Public Trust become widely known and adopted in the community, please be respectful of those who don’t already know. Eventually, as individuals wake up to the new paradigm, they will simply cease operating on the former corporation’s behalf. But if you need to serve a Courtesy Notice to an individual in the meantime, honour your position of knowledge and take the opportunity to respectfully inform them. Ground-level agents of former Corporations, Banks and Governments are just like you and I; they are were slaves to the same system too. They just don’t know the truth yet, that’s all.

In the case of ‘legal’ dealings, it is not recommended that you serve a Courtesy Notice with Terms & Conditions to a (former) police officer who pulls you over on the street. Again, they are just like the rest of us… and realistically they are likely to arrest and “charge” you if you approach them that way. Until public awareness reaches saturation point, I recommend that you comply with the ground-level officer, then serve them a Courtesy Notice via fax, email, registered mail… or even hand deliver it. Should it escalate to a court, notify the Magistrate/Judge (or similar) in the same way before your scheduled court date. I don’t recommended you put a Judge on the spot by providing them with Terms and Conditions in court. If you are respectful and allow them to read the Courtesy Notice privately before your hearing, you achieve a better outcome for all Beings involved in that interaction.

Remember: The process of issuing Courtesy Notices is just as much a learning exercise for those being served as it is a remedy for your situation. Co-operation between individuals is the key to manifesting the new paradigm in our society. In the absence of any corporate-controlled Media coverage of this subject, public awareness of the One People’s Public Trust will only occur through the respectful sharing of information within our communities and networks.

After all, we are “One People, created by The Creator”.

What Mechanisms Are Provided Under The OPPT?

With the lawful dissolution of the Corporate Government system comes the dissolution of the multitude of statutes and regulations that were created through its legislative and administrative frameworks. As Beneficiaries of the One People’s Public Trust, UCC, Universal Law and Common Law are the only rules in play.

Universal Law is essentially the overarching principle for governing conduct between beings. Universal Law is expressed as ”any free will choice is permissible except where it interferes with the free will choice of another being”. This is fundamental to the OPPT framework.

Common Law refers to laws of precedent developed through the decisions of courts and similar tribunals over millennia. Common Law works on the principle that it is unfair to treat similar facts differently on different occasions, and on the principle of “do no harm, cause no loss”.

To facilitate our transition into the post-OPPT world, the Trustees created a new lawful framework – informed by Universal and Common Law – which will allow us to build a new world and also allows for the dismantling of the old system.

Any person, and specifically existing military personnel whose oaths have been cancelled by the termination of the corporation they worked for, may “knowingly, willingly, and intentionally volunteer” to be bonded to the One People’s Public Trust “as public servants… to protect and serve the people of the creator”.

Public Servants who choose to become bonded to the Trust are:

  • “Authorized and ordered to protect and preserve the blood and life” of all persons
  • Authorized to “take into custody any and all … agents and officers… owning, operating, aiding and abetting private money systems… legal enforcement systems… [and] operating slavery systems”.
  • Authorized to “repossess all private money systems, tracking, transferring, issuing, collection, legal enforcement systems”.
  • “Granted due authority of discretion… to use any [and] all means, force and strategies… to complete this order”.

In effect, willing members of the military are provided a lawful framework to abandon the Corporate-controlled military, to bond themselves to the OPP Trust, and to actively contribute to the re-possession of the One People’s assets.

And if I’m any judge of human nature, an increasing number of agents will be glad to accept these “orders”!

Now… the ‘enforcement’ order doesn’t mean that public servants will come and arrest the first collections agent that calls you about your overdue credit card. It is the role of each of us – as Beings of the Creator – to help others at ground-level to understand this change, by informing them and providing them with Courtesy Notices. The ‘enforcement’ order relates to the Owners of the foreclosed Corporate Government structure; the 1%.

Assistance Centres for the One People

‘Community service’ was clearly not a motivator to the former owners of “the system”. Nonetheless, their corporations fulfilled some necessary functions of public assistance like police and public health services… albeit in hopes we wouldn’t notice they were corporations!

So what provisions does OPPT include for public service?

Creator’s Value Asset Centres (or CVAC’s) are assistance mechanisms designed to support and serve humanity, the custodians of Earth. They provide an interconnected planet-wide network of support, operated by bonded public servants who act in full liability at all times. They provide a simple framework of governance and administration, covering 8 areas of functional process:

  1. Systems of Knowledge
  2. Communication
  3. Travel
  4. Transparency
  5. Protection & peacekeeping
  6. Accountability
  7. Treasury
  8. Repossession*

* The transitional function of reclaiming from The Debtor the resources, infrastructure and wealth of the One People, in accordance with the terms of the One People’s Public Trust.

Each former nation on the planet has one CVAC branch reserved for it, with the exception of the Vatican. Each CVAC branch will administer the same services and operate in the same way as the CVAC branches in other regions. Every human on the planet will be supported by each and any CVAC hub, and every human will have access to the same resources and support networks. Each administrative area of each CVAC will be operated by a local council and led by a steward, whose primary role is to co-ordinate and facilitate the One People in making decisions and resolving issues. The structure also allows for additional sub-CVACs to be created to accommodate new circumstances or initiatives, provided that their function is for the benefit of all Beings and doesn’t undermine the freewill rights of others.

In an interview on The CrowHouse on 15th February 2013, OPPT Trustee Heather Tucci-Jarraf described the CVAC structure as “a safe and guarded place for you to Be and Do as you choose… just don’t damage anybody else”.

Our possibilities are literally boundless!

By its definition, the CVAC system is the antithesis of the corrupt corporate tools we called “Governments”. Accountability, measurability and transparency are the cornerstones of the CVAC framework. CVACs will provide the platform for us to simplify and unify laws for all, and to ensure the needs of all are met. They are prevented from impinging on the free will of any entity “in any and all existence”, and bound to “preserve and protect all creations, and value and asset centres”. Stewards and council members will be subject to 3-monthly renewal of their bonded roles, which ensures that public servants remain responsible to “the One People” at all times.

For these reasons, CVACs are the foundation of a new type of governance. The system now serves us, and not the other way around. And with awareness and support from the One People swelling, its first task will be to remove the old cabal.

Documentation relating to the creation and terms of CVAC’s is available at Further information will be published soon.

Moving Forward As “The One People”

The One People’s Public Trust represents a massive paradigm shift. It provides a structural change that will enable a long-overdue energetic change.

The OPPT ratifies our freedom as Beings of the Creator in perpetuity. It corrects by law the imbalances of poverty, inequity and unsustainability. It provides a platform through which we can all experience the wonders and resources of our planet. And by removing the façade of corporate entities and the ridiculous protocols that protected its perpetrators, we will energetically reconnect with each other. As Beings. In full liability. Each with equity. As we are. Free.

We are in a period of massive social, political and spiritual transformation.

Personally, this transition feels a little like we are between worlds. The systemic framework that controlled our lives for so long has been removed, but the change hasn’t yet manifested in full in the physical world around us. The process of reforming former corporations into worldwide co-operatives will no doubt take time, but we already have the lawful power to reject the old system. And yet it hasn’t stopped pretending to be real.

We have so many decisions to make too! What will we choose to BE and DO in the new world? What opportunities will we create with the CVACs framework? And realistically, what will we do with the “Powers That Were”?

For now, it is the duty of every human Being to manifest the freedom of the One People’s Public Trust in our daily lives, and to help others to understand and integrate and manifest it in their lives too.

Freedom is not free. It comes with responsibility.

Change starts with you.

Do the right thing now.

Embrace your responsibility.

Spread the word.

South Africa Central Drug Authority Position Paper on Dagga

Medical/therapeutic use

Cannabis has a long history of medical use in various countries (Grinspoon & Bakalar, 1993). Cannabis was used to treat a variety of human ills in folk and formal medicine for thousands of years in Turkey, South America, Egypt, India, the Malays, Burma and Siam (Hall & Degenhardt, 2003; Mechoulam, 1986; Anslinger & Cooper, 1937). In the early 1800s, United States physicians used cannabis extracts to produce a tonic for both medicinal and recreational purposes. However, in 1937 its use as an intoxicant was prohibited by the Marijuana Tax Act. Nevertheless, in the same year tinctures of cannabis were still cited in the United States Pharmacopeia and National Formulary’s list of therapeutic drugs.

Until 1937 a nerve tonic produced from the cannabis plant was legally retailed in South Africa. For many years, mankind here attached medicinal value to the cannabis plant and used it for many ailments such as epilepsy, asthma, heart attack, multiple sclerosis and cancer (Spruit & Van Laar, 1997). Some religious groups such as the Rastafarians refer to it as the holy plant that induces calmness and inner peace. Some traditional healers (e.g. ngaka ya malopo) and some indigenous religious leaders in South Africa also assert that cannabis helps people to “see into the future” and to “hear voices” of prophecy. This is in keeping with Hanson and Venturelli’s (1998:372) statement: “A subjective euphoric effect associated with marijuana use is the ongoing social psychological experiences incurred while intoxicated with marijuana. It includes both the user’s altered state of consciousness and his or her perceptions while intoxicated.” The following therapeutic benefits have been listed with regard to cannabis use:

AIDS-related wasting

Drocannabinol is used to stimulate appetite and to assist AIDS patients to gain weight (Beal, Olson, Laubenstein et al., 1995). Hall and Degenhardt (2003), however, point out that some patients do not like the psychoactive effects of drocannabinol; they find it difficult to titrate their oral dose because of the delayed onset and prolonged duration of its effects.


Glaucoma is caused by elevated intra-ocular pressure (IOP), which produces blindness if untreated. Drocannabinol taken orally or intravenously reduces IOP by 25%, but this effect lasts only for three to four hours (Hall & Degenhardt, 2003). Cannabis lowers glaucoma-associated IOP, even though it does not cure the condition or reverse blindness.

Anti-asthmatic effect

Cannabis smoke results in bronchodilation. This means that it dilates the air passages and thus achieves an anti-asthmatic effect. Some researchers have observed that short-term smoking of cannabis improves the breathing of asthma patients.

Muscle-relaxant effect

Some studies have shown that muscle spasms are relieved when patients with muscle disorders, such as multiple sclerosis, use cannabis (Pertwee, 2002). While several other studies have provided some support, Hall and Degenhardt (2003:691) state: “There are too few clinical trials to evaluate efficacy.”

Anti-seizure effect

Cannabis has both convulsant and anti-convulsant properties. It has been considered in the prevention of epileptic seizures.

Anti-depressant effect

Cannabis and the synthetic cannabinoid synthexyl have been used successfully in Great Britain as specific euphoriants for the treatment of depression.


A small number of controlled trials in humans suggest that drocannabinol and other cannabinoids have analgesic effects in acute post-operative and chronic pain, being equivalent to 60 mg codein (Hall & Degenhardt, 2003; Bagshaw & Hagen, 2002; Campbell, Tramer & Carrol, 2001). However, according to these authors, some patients report adverse psychotropic effects from these cannabinoids. Hanson and Venturelli (1998) also note that the pain-relieving potency of cannabis has not been carefully studied and compared with the pain-relieving properties of other analgesics such as the narcotics or aspirin-type drugs. Indeed, various researchers have emphatically stated that cannabis and related products must be rigorously tested for toxicity and therapeutic effectiveness, a process which is “time­consuming, expensive and not worthwhile if other drugs are already available that offer therapeutic efficacy comparable to, or better than, the marijuana substances. In addition, concerns about the abuse potential and the social stigma associated with marijuana need to be considered” (Hanson & Venturelli, 1998:385).

Anti-nausea effect

Cannabis (THC) or related drugs have often been used for the symptomatic relief of extreme nausea and vomiting that tend to accompany cancer chemotherapy (Hall & Degenhardt, 2003). In Canada, in the late 1970s and early l980s, for example, cannabis was used medically by hundreds of patients (mainly in the form of synthetic tetrahydrocannabinol) in state projects for the treatment of nausea and vomiting in cancer chemotherapy. This practice was, however, discontinued “because each state program had to comply with an enormous federal paperwork burden that was more than the physicians and administrators involved could bear” (Grinspoon, 1998:386).

Hall and Degenhardt (2003) further state that newer anti-emetics, such as ondansetron, appear to provide better control over nausea and vomiting than drocannabinol, with fewer adverse effects. There may be value in exploring the efficacy of combining ondansetron and drocannabinol to manage poorly controlled or delayed vomiting (Hall & Degenhardt, 2003).

Rastafari applicant vs DA respondent







1. The inflammatory remarks uttered by Mr. Mark Wiley from the Democratic Alliance on the Voice of Islam radio station on 25June 2013 at 08h15am ‘It is no secret that the Rastafarian community openly uses and promotes dagga. Dagga is a prohibited substance and for a senior police staff officer to be seen associating himself with this drug is nothing short of scandalous” is in conflict with the spirit, letter and purport of our constitutional democracy and perpetuates intolerance and insensitivity in violation of the equality provisions.

2. Mr. Wiley’s characterization of cannabis as a drug is unsound, unscientific and unconstitutional and is purely based on antiquated, racist and culturally presumptuous premises. The Rastafari community emphatically denies the classification of cannabis as a drug and Mr. Wiley and the Democratic Alliance is put to the proof thereof.

3. The respondent’s assertion that Major General Veary’s conduct is unbecoming that of a senior police official is not only presumptuous but ignorant; as empirical studies shows that in several countries where they changed their approach to dealing with substance abuse that those changes came as a result of senior police officers putting pressure on government.

4. The DA’s statement undoubtedly denotes the Rastafari way of life as scandalous, criminal and facilitating substance abuse. This characterization is not only uncalled for; it perpetuates prejudice and intolerance. It is destructive of social cohesion and refuses to acknowledge Rastafari as legitimate members of society and as the custodians of indigenous aboriginal culture.

5. The true test for tolerance as required by the Promotion of Equality and Prevention of Unfair Discrimination Act 4 of 2000 lies not in making space for that which is easily and readily accommodated or tolerated, but in finding space for the bizarre, the unusual and even that which in the past was seen as threatening. Rastafari is a religious and spiritual movement that forms an integral part of the rich South African cultural tapestry. Whereas our way of life was frowned upon under apartheid; the constitution obliges the DA and the government to recognize our existential rights and make reasonable space for the growth and flourishing of the Rastafari way of life.

6. Our practice of using cannabis cannot be blamed for the problem of substance abuse in our society as we the first nation people of this country used cannabis long before the advent of the DA and their kind and even long before substance abuse became a legitimate concern in our communities. Lumping Rastafari use of cannabis with the abusers of hard drugs is not only unconstitutional, it is downright wicked as our community can be demonstrated to be one that eschews drugs and substance abuse and that we use less addictive substances then most if not all cultures in South Africa.

7. Equality in our constitutional democracy mean equal respect and concern for difference; not treating everyone the same. Difference is no longer seen as divisive or destructive; but as adding to variety which is the mother of enjoyment. The cultural and social practices of one group in society can no longer enjoy preference over others that are as deserving of protection and care. When these practices forms part of the culture and social practices of the previously disadvantaged it places a higher responsibility on the provincial and national government to find space for the effective recognition and enjoyment of these practices.

8. The usage of cannabis is a customary cultural practice of the first nation people of this country and it also migrated to other cultures in our society to the extent that its usage can fairly be said to be national.

9. The DA does not characterize the practice of giving communion in church as promoting alcoholism in our society; neither can the problem of woman and child abuse be laid in front of the door of those cultures that practice polygamy. To blame Rastafari for drug abuse is racist and bigoted and the assertion has no basis in empirical reality. The conduct of the respondent thus amounts to unfair discrimination.

10. The Rastafari community has a right to live their lives as free and responsible citizens and we submit that there is nothing in our lifestyle that necessitates government labeling us as drug abusers and our lifestyle as one that facilitates drug abuse.

11. The Democratic Alliance must proof that the Rastafari community and our usage of cannabis is criminogenic and that society cannot reasonably accommodate our cultural and religious practice without compromising general health and safety.

12. The creation of an egalitarian society with equality as its focal and organizing principle will remain a fleeting illusion, ever to be pursued but never to be attained unless there is a concerted effort on the part of government to be pragmatic about resolving the problems of our times such as substance abuse.

13. All over the world it is becoming increasingly evident that harm prevention policies in respect of substance abuse have failed dismally and that the societies that have made real forward strides in combating the problem of substance abuse did so because of harm reduction policies. The problem of substance abuse is thus not seen as a problem for the criminal justice system but as a social dilemma which necessitates viewing those who have substance abuse problems not as criminals or junkies but as patients which require care not jail. The DA’s attempt to throw the criminal justice system at the problem is not pragmatic and is out of tune with social reality.

14. The Rastafari community wants an unconditional apology from the Democratic Alliance for scandalizing our name and impugning our character.
