“We raided the house and found dagga plants and 3kg of dried substances,” she explained.

Tsakani- A 33-year-old woman is in hot water with the police for selling baked goods laced with dagga to primary school learners in Extension Eight.
This is after the parent of a 12-year-old recently learned that her son was absent from school.
Upon confrontation, the learner told his mother that he was turned away from school because his temperature was too high.
