While purchasing and selling weed remains prohibited, growing cannabis at home for private consumption has been legal in South Africa since September 2018.
Prior to 2018 (under the South Africa Drugs and Drug Trafficking Act 140 0f 1992) cannabis was listed as a Schedule 1 narcotic in South Africa. This meant it was illegal to possess it, even for personal use. Under the new amendment called the Cannabis for Private Purposes Bill, the following limits for personal possession of plants, seeds and flower are permitted:
Legal limits for personal use at home are set to:
- unlimited for seeds and seedlings
- four flowering plants for those living alone, or eight for homes with two adults or more
- 600 grams of dried cannabis if you live alone, or 1.2 kilograms in homes with two or more adults.
- In public places, possession is set to 100 grams of cannabis or one flowering plant.
