South Africa’s constitutional court delivered a landmark judgement decriminalising the smoking of marijuana at home. Delivering the judgement, Deputy Chief Justice, Raymond Zondo said the ban on private possession and consumption, and cultivation of the plant for own use is unconstitutional. The court found that the country’s cannabis ban infringed on section 14 of the South African constitution which gives all citizens the right to privacy. South Africa now joins a long list of countries which have decriminalised Marijuana. What kind of small businesses can be viable after this judgement?
With the decriminalisation judgement being passed, there will be more people curious to have a better understanding of marijuana and its effects. Medical and psychological consultancy work would be a potential business in this regard.
Marijuana smokers and campaigners are currently caught up in the euphoria of the concourt judgement. The marijuana plant is currently a symbol of triumph for these people. A fashion line or store with fashion items symbolising the marijuana plant would offer potential good returns.
Marijuana agro services
Marijuana smokers have been granted the liberty to grow the plan for home use. A small gardening and marijuana agro services company which assists people in growing the plant around backyards is a potential business.
