I haven't had a proper read of the document yet but I strongly urge anyone wanting to apply for cultivation to be very cautious about doing so, in fact I would only suggest it if you are not currently growing or intend to grow in the near distant future. Not sure if there is a disclaimer on the said document but if there isn't, who knows where your details will end up...

I read through this last night, and those regulations are a load of horseshit. There is soooo much redtape there that covert growing like we do now is the way forward. Honestly they can go and fertilize their gardens with that.

Agreed. Just a small example is the guideline in the attached image. I'm sure the majority of the growers in this country who are capable of producing medical grade weed are users themselves. Will the MCC constitute daily or frequent use of cannabis as a drug addiction? Very likely yes. Then there's the drug tests which pretty much cuts us out right there, if cannabis will still be classified as an illicit drug then that's that, unless you're willing to give up your self medication to medicate others. 

Correct me if I'm wrong but I don't see anything about patients being able to grow their own medical bud. Huge amount of money to be saved if patients can grow their own

I think we'll still have a substantial underground medical cannabis movement in this country like we have now, even when the legal industry hits full swing.

All we can do is wait on the High Court Dagga case verdict :-meditate

Considering what it is. That's nut a bad amount to pay. Especially if we want good clean meds to be available to patients...

Deadline is near now. Here's a petition which you can sign, with some objections to the guidelines, if you agree with the objections.
