Lester Kiewit interviews Ziyaad September (maker of cannabis ice cream) and "Stoney Polony", maker of cannabis brownies.

For pain, and for pleasure – nowadays, it seems like everyone and their aunties are using dagga (“cannabis” in polite conversation).

Dagga is legal to grow and use at home, trading not yet so.

Nevertheless, there has been a proliferation of products, oils, soups, creams, and whatnot, all containing compounds found in dagga, notably CBD (trading of which is legal).
