Dagga use is political defiance

“The legislated prohibition of a plant, the ethnobotanical use of which has been ingrained in the culture of a people for thousands of years, along with the violent enforcement of such legislation, equates to ethno-political oppression. It therefore logically follows that to cultivate and use such a plant is an act of political defiance.”
– Lawrence Qholloi (Scratched on the wall of cell number 3, Howick Police station)
