The Constitutional Court has approved the growing and use of cannabis for private use. This creates an opportunity to tap into the growing cannabis tourism market for SA. The Wild Coast in the Eastern Cape and other economically deprived areas in SA such as Free State, Eastern Cape and KwaZulu-Natal, are known for cannabis production. It is the most used drug/herb in the world, and it is impossible to police cannabis.

Cannabis tourism has a huge potential. Unathi Sonwabile Henama Pretoria
