With marijuana legalised in the country thanks to the landmark Constitutional Court ruling in 2018 declaring that private and personal cultivation and use of cannabis is protected under the constitution, many citizens are looking for ways to cash in on the cannabis crop, you pretty much see it everywhere these days, in high or low places and by that we mean either balconies or gardens respectively. But not everyone can dedicate the time and effort required to grow this sacred plant...enter The Haze Club. The one-month-old Cape Town company is committed to growing your weed and delivering it right to your doorstep. In fact, it’s something vaguely similar to Uber Eats.
The Haze Club found a simple solution to the not so simple process of growing cannabis. It operates at a high tech cannabis facility which is created to grow quality weed for those who can’t cultivate their own. The company simply manages the cultivation process on your behalf, day and night until the weed is grown to your perfection and highness requirement levels.
Membership costs R949 per month, and delivery takes 12 to 14 weeks depending on the strain, it said. The club does not sell cannabis in it's own personal capacity, nor does it provide any plants or seeds – it simply leases out space in its grow facilities and manages the cultivation of the plants on clients’ behalf.
The big question though is all of this legal?
To comply with the law, individual areas in the club’s grow facility are demarcated and leased to its members – thereby making it their private space, it said.
“The club simply assists members in exercising their constitutional right to grow cannabis in their own private space. The club also limits each member to a maximum of two plants. The amount of cannabis is small enough that there can be no doubt that it is for personal consumption.”
“As the law currently stands, (the club) can only grow that which is yours,” it said. “We do not supply seeds or clones.”
