The Con­sti­tu­tional Court ruled on Tues­day that the pri­vate cul­ti­va­tion, pos­ses­sion and con­sump­tion of cannabis is le­gal. The gov­ern­ment has been given 24 months to “rec­tify the con­sti­tu­tional de­fects” that pro­hibit mar­i­juana use. How­ever, the court, by way of a read­ing-in, en­sured it would not be a crim­i­nal of­fence to use or be in pos­ses­sion of cannabis for pri­vate con­sump­tion or to cul­ti­vate it in a pri­vate place for per­sonal con­sump­tion.
