If you think the recent Con Court ruling on dagga use means you're free to go to work high, think again!

Azania Mosaka spoke to Labour Law Specialist Puke Maserumule and Howard Dembovsky from Justice Project SA about the laws relating to cannabis testing.
It's much more difficult to test for cannabis than it is to test for alcohol.— Puke Maserumule, Labour Law Specialist at Maserumule Incorporated
