JUST IN!! S.A Government Lifts Ban On Private Use Of Marijuana

A Boulder County Caregivers employee holds a handful of marijuana at the dispensary in Boulder, Colo. on Friday, July 24, 2009. Sixteen glass jars of marijuana are lined up behind the counter with names like Skinny Pineapple and Early Pearl Maui, ranging from $375 to $420 an ounce. It’s all legal and it’s all taxed. But this marijuana dispensary and nearly 60 others that are serving a growing number of medical marijuana users operate with little oversight by state or local authorities. (AP Photo/Ed Andrieski)

“It will not be a criminal offence for an adult person to use or be in possession of cannabis in private space,’’ Judge Raymond Zondo said in his ruling.

“It’s been persecution and prosecution for the Rastafarian community,’’ one of those celebrating, Prince, told TV channel eNCA.
