The SA Cannabis Lobby Group is a civil society partnership between the Western Cape branch of the Cannabis Development Council of South Africa (CDCSA) and Afristar Foundation.
We are an umbrella body representing civil society that is advocating for a rational scientific and agricultural based approach to cannabis legislation to benefit all South Africans. Cannabis has an important role to play as South Africa’s primary reconstruction and development driver to put us at the forefront of the rapidly emerging global, multibillion-dollar cannabis industry.
Our short term objective is to raise awareness with parliamentarians on the numerous benefits of the cannabis value chain with the longer term aim of opening up the cannabis market in South Africa for all to benefit. Our Parliamentary lobby approach is to promote the holistic use of the cannabis plant based on creative regulation, to unlock the plants potential for the benefit of all.
