The South African cabinet has approved the submission of the Cannabis for Private Purposes Bill of 2020 to parliament for processing.
The Constitutional Court ruled in 2018 that the use of cannabis in South Africa was legal for both personal and medical use. But it is currently still unlawful to use it outside of oneâ€™s private home as well as buying and selling it.
The new bill will regulate the use and possession of cannabis and the cultivation of cannabis plants by an adult for personal use.
It will also provide the limit of the quantity of cannabis that may be possessed by an adult and criminalize the smoking of cannabis in public places, according to Justice and Correctional Services Minister Ronald Lamola.
