Accommodate the development, ownership and supply of weed plants and pot by associations for strict and social purposes for their individuals; and

Regard the right to protection of a grown-up individual to involve weed for vindication or medicine.

With the public get together endorsing these augmentations on 31 March, the bill is presently being viewed as in a moment round of public support gatherings.

While Cosatu said it comprehensively upholds the targets of the charge, it noticed that more work actually should be done on the draft bill as it was 'ridiculously regulatory and bulky' in certain respects.
