About Steve Swart
Swart comes from a prohibitionist background but he’s an evidence-based guy and has been one of the most active members of the Portfolio Committee considering the Cannabis for Private Purposes Bill. Swart takes constitutionality seriously and his probing questions are in quest of clarity, not obfuscation. The wonky progress of the CPBB has been an educational experience for MP’s in the world of cannabis, so let’s hope the debate and discussions on regulating the potential of the plant wins over the likes of Swart. Here’s hoping he becomes a progressive before the year is out.
