Below is a recent clip of Marc sharing a pot pipe with a notable political figure in South Africa, Mr Jeremy Acton of the Daggaparty of South Africa. Jeremy also known as ” Dagga Boer” has been involved in cannabis activism for a over a decade and assisted many South Africans who have been charged by police for “dagga”, a local word for cannabis.

Jeremy is also a longtime advocate of cannabis culture and recently made the news after himself and Gareth Prince had a constitutional court challenge approved for the use of cannabis during 2018.

“The ruling of the court legalizes the smoking and growing of dagga for private use. However, according to the highest court in South Africa, marijuana cannot be publicly smoked or publicly sold. The South African Constitutional Court’s decision sustains a ruling by the Western Cape High Court that a prohibition on personal cannabis consumption was unconstitutional, which permits marijuana for the province including Cape Town. However, according to the Daily Nation, police officials, justice, trade, and health ministries were against the ruling.”

Below is a short clip of both Marc and Jeremy sharing a pot pipe in a local cannabis cafe in Cape Town, South Africa discussing cannabis South Africa.
