Again children and cannabis (dagga)
- By Brig Dirk Lambrechts
An article entitled “Almost 90 Soshanguve pupils discharged after eating muffins (cookies) laced with dagga” was published on the IOL (Independent Online) news and information website dated 22 September 2023. The children became ill after they ate cookies laced with dagga which they purchased from a street vendor on their way to school.
According to this IOL news article, the SAPS is investigating the circumstances surrounding the said incident. Accordingly, a reader wants to know whether any offence has been committed here – be it by the vendor and/or by the children concerned?
