Dagga worth R1-million seized outside Grahamstown

Grahamstown police seized dagga worth about R1-million during a vehicle check point on the N2 on Thursday evening.

Police spokeswoman Captain Mali Govender said members of the Grahamstown Highway Patrol stopped an Opel Corsa bakkie travelling from Mthatha towards Port Elizabeth at about 6.30pm.

“On searching the bakkie which had two male occupants aged 24 and 35, they discovered compressed dagga packed in huge bags stacked in the back of the vehicle and behind the seats. A total of 23 bags with a street value of approximately R1-million was seized,” Govender said.

The suspects, who face a charge of possession of dagga, will appear in the Grahamstown Magistrate’s Court soon.

    Dagga is medicine with a lower potential for harm to self & society than sugar. Substance abuse is a result of poverty and bad policy (the war on drugs). Rather the police focus on real crime than the failed war on drugs aka a war on people. Rather science than propaganda.
