Justice Dept: Minister to Determine Quotas for Home Grow; Commercialization 'Not Our Problem'

Justice Department says commercialization of cannabis not part of its remit – other departments have to take the lead, and by the way, limitations on the number of plants allowed for home growers are on the horizon!

This is a Department of Justice press release.


The Department responded to the 46 submissions received on the Cannabis for Private Purposes Bill, emphasising that the Bill does not encompass the commercialisation of cannabis, which falls under another department's jurisdiction. It clarified that while the Bill allows for cannabis cultivation, the Minister of Justice will determine specific plant quotas. 


Responses further delved into various submissions regarding cannabis use, possession, and cultivation in South Africa, highlighting the Bill's universal applicability without racial exclusion but strict prohibition on cannabis sales. 


Additionally, concerns surrounding private social clubs, job creation, and industry regulation were acknowledged, with plans to address them in forthcoming national legislation. The response also encompassed issues concerning cannabis use among members of the South African National Defence Force and safeguarding children from misconceptions regarding cannabis legality for adolescents.


The Committee agreed to deliberate on the Bills in its next meeting.
