Myrtle Clarke and Jules Stobbs, also known as the Dagga Couple; have dedicated the last six years of their lives to a very important cause, the re-legalization of cannabis in South Africa. Finally the court dates are set and the end is in view. I talk to them about their campaign and the upcoming trail in August this year.
The Dagga Couple (a phrase coined by the South African press) are preparing a case to apply for the opportunity to ask some very simple questions in the highest court in South Africa, The Constitutional Court. How come this benign, useful, non toxic, non lethal plant has lead to the persecution of so many people, in so many countries, for so long?
