I was lucky enough to meet the founder of The Bobby Greenhash Foundation who is touted as being the Robin Hood of medicinal marijuana in Richards Bay, South Africa.
Off the back of my amazing hosts recommendations, I went down to seek out Bobby Greenhash to do a podcast with, and to my surprise, was welcomed in like an old friend and invited to see Richards Bay from their perspective.
I heard some incredible stories about the work they do in helping people overcome cancer, children handle psoriasis and epilepsy and the risky business they conduct in the public and police eye.
This man is pioneering the legalisation of medicinal marijuana in South Africa and standing up to shine a light on the inefficacy of the war on drugs.
I was inspired by their banter and encouraged by the progress they’re making. We need more people to stand up for what they believe in and change the age-old systems that are not serving the people.
I will be publishing the podcast we recorded soon and encourage you all to follow the work of the Bobby Greenhash Foundation:
Medicinal marijuana is on the precipice of being legalised in South Africa but there is still so much contention around the subject, even though one of the Presidents own cabinet members has overcome cancer with the help of this miracle plant.
It’s about time the stigma around marijuana is squashed and the medicinal benefits recognised in the legal system.
I hope you enjoy my afternoon wit the Robin Hood of Medicinal Marijuana.

I’m riding for a charity called Orphan Opportunities and will visit orphanages where I can throughout my route. I met the man who started the charity in Mozambique and fell in love with the passion of his own mission. It makes complete sense to me: while there are many misfortunate people in Africa who could do with some assistance, they’re often not doing much to help their own situation, relying instead on the goodwill of others, whereas children without parents have been dealt a bad hand and can’t help themselves. I’ve always said, the youth are not 100% of the population, but they are 100% of the future. If we want to help the future of Africa and the world, we need to properly raise the youth.
