Man Arrested For Cultivating 11 Marijuana Plant At His Garden

Man Arrested For Cultivating 11 Marijuana Plant At His Garden

The Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) has announced the arrest of a Dete man for cultivating 11 marijuana plants in his garden. Police said in a statement:

On 27/01/22, Police in Hwange reacted to a tip-off and arrested Langton Masunda (57) for cultivating eleven plants of dagga at his garden at Halfway Hotel, Gwayi, Dete.

In 2020, Zimbabwe legalised the production of industrial hemp (marijuana) through Statutory Instrument 218 Agricultural Marketing Authority (Industrial Hemp) Regulations gazetted on Friday by the Minister of Lands, Agriculture, Water and Rural Resettlement Anxious Masuka.

According to  Zimbabwe Industrial Hemp Trust (ZIHT)’s Dr Zorodzai Maroveke, the first harvesting of industrial hemp happened in 2020.

Scores of people have been arrested nationwide for possession of marijuana.

When the government authorised the production of industrial hemp, some thought possession of marijuana was now legal.

Meanwhile, Police in Bulawayo arrested Sanele Sharon Ndlovu (27) for unlawful possession of three sachets of Crystal Methamphetamine weighing approximately 0.001 kgs with a value of ZWL$2 550.

Crystal Methamphetamine, known as Mutoriro in street lingo, also referred to as Dombo (Shona for Stone), is one of the most abused drugs in Zimbabwe.

It reportedly started appearing in Zimbabwe around 2016 and its use was on the increase since.

The Crystal Meth in Zimbabwe is in the form of brownish-cream grains that look like coarse salt or small hailstones.

In South Africa, Mutoriro is called Tik.

Mimwe mitemo is nonsense. Akarima mbanje dzake, mugarden rake, nesimba rake, mbewu yake, fertilizer yake kuti asvute hake saka chaipa chiyi apa. If anything tobacco growing should be ilegalised coz after smoking it you dont even feel anything. Whereas mbanje you feel high or ireeeh.

THEY IS NO SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE TO BACK MARIJUANA AS A DANGEROUS DRUG NO ONE HAS EVER DIED FROM SMOKING IT.(YOU LITERLLAY CANNOT OVERDOSE ON WEED).ALCHOHOL AND CIGARRETTES ARE MORE DANGEROUS THAN WEED.THE DEATH TOLL NUMBERS ARE THERE TO CONFIRM.ZIMBABWE SHOULD MAKE IT OWN LAWS BASED ON THE GOOD WILL OF IT PPL .MALAWI AND ESWATINI ARE 2 AFRICAN COUNTRIES MAING A PROFIT FROM THE BUSINESS.

THE ONLY REASON WHY WEEDIS ILLEGAL IS BECAUS THE PERCEIVED WORLD SUPERPOWER (AMERICA) HAS NOT FOUND A WAY TO PROFIT FROM WEED THE WAY IT DOES ON ALCOHOL AND CIGARRETTES.THEREBY INFLUENCING THE REST OF THE WORLD TO BAN.

I HAVE NEVER SEEN ANYONE BEING VIOLENT AND TALKATIVE AFTER SMOKING WEED LIKE DRUNKARDS DO AFTER TAKING ALCOHOL.

5 SCIENTIFICALLY BACKED BENEFITS OF SMOKING WEED:
⚫ITS AN ANTI DEPRESSANT(THATS RIGHT ITS HELPS WITH DEPRESSION)
⚫ITS HAS CANCER STOPING AGENTS
⚫HELPS IMPROVE LUNG CAPACITY (INSTEAD OF CAUSING LUNG CANCER LIKE CIGARETTES)
⚫HELPS PPL WITH BIPOLAR AND ADHD.
⚫GOOD FOR CREATIVES LIKE ARTISTS AND MUSICIANS

The law of making mbanje illegal was white settlers laws ,in other countries it is being legalised because they've come to realise that weed does not come close to other dangerous substances that are out there ,it now regarded not as a dangerous drug in other countries . Some even view alcohol more dangerous to human health than weed.

11 (eleven) this is🌱 commercial. We could feel for this farmer if he had only one or two plants. They would have been for subsistence.
