The Inkatha Freedom Party has slammed police union Popcru’s renewed efforts at Cosatu’s congress in Midrand to legalise dagga.
According to reports, the IFP’s Velaphi Ndlovu says Popcru’s new arguments is that they want to “empower the people who produce dagga to contribute to South Africa's economy”.
They added that the legalisation would allow the police to focus on more serious crimes.
Ndlovu says legalised dagga use will affect productivity, increase road accidents and increase the incidence of child neglect.
