Cannabis was le­galised for per­sonal use in SA in Septem­ber this year, but in some states in the US it’s been le­gal for some time. That’s why their Rebel Coast Win­ery is al­ready work­ing on a Sauvi­gnon Blanc con­tain­ing THC, the pri­mary psy­choac­tive in­gre­di­ent in cannabis (they re­move the al­co­hol con­tent of the wine and re­place it with 20mg of THC). ‘Af­ter one glass you won’t be think­ing your couch is a hippo with short legs or any­thing,’ their site reads. ‘… but it will put most peo­ple in a great place.’ Hmmm… And, they say, it won’t give you a hang­over!

‘Af­ter one glass you won’t be think­ing your couch is a hippo with short legs or any­thing.’
