Indigenous South African cannabis growers have been camping in front of the President's office in Pretoria since 2018.

We wont be moved (...) Its our right to cultivate cannabis, and enjoy our way of life, said King Khoisan SA,reported The Cannabis Culture.

Khoisan, one of the demonstrators, saidhe is the king of the Khoisan, South Africas first nation that has lived in the country for over 10 000 years and grown cannabis unrestricted.

In 2022, the police attempted to arrest him.

Lt. Col. Robert Netshiunda, spokesman of the South African police said that the Khoisan community is breaking the law by cultivating cannabis, which is illegal in South Africa.

Its nonsensical; its hogwash, said Khoisan. I can smoke cannabis; rub my knee pains with it in our land, we have been living this way for 10, 000 years.

The Cannabis Culture reported that tourists are fascinated with the cause. Its a moment to teach the world of the colonial state in South Africa that even controls our plants like cannabis apart from our bodies, Khoisan said.
