There are 3.2 million South Africans who regularly consume dagga, according to a 2008 study by the Medical Research Council.

Dagga is popular among women and men; whether black or white, rich or poor.

South Africa is, according to Interpol, the world’s fourth-largest dagga producer.

Consuming dagga recreationally for personal use – and growing it – is legal.
