Victory! The state will not oppose my motion to stay prosecution.

On Friday 16 January I received Notice from the State attorney that they will not oppose my motion to stay prosecution which was filed in the High Court in Pietermaritzburg.

Given the number of precedents in similar cases countrywide, as well as the state’s intention to abide, the ordering of the stay by the high court is now a mere formality.

Important to note that this entire process was conducted without a lawyer and cost me less than R2000, including travel costs and document printing and serving fees. This same process is available to anyone being persecuted under prohibition law in South Africa.

  1. Well done Lawrence! This is truly a demonstration of a true sovereign human being in action i.e. one who is willing to be responsible and stand accountable, and to do what needs doing for the sake and benefit of all, including himself. Your actions will have major ramifications for many others on the journey to making the benefits of Cannabis truly available to all South Africans without fear of recrimination. You have demonstrated that we no longer need to fight for freedom, for rights or for justice; we just have to stand up in what is true and reclaim what has always been so. Namaste.
