According to Andile Mngxitama's party, black people knew that cannabis was a magical herb long before white people settled in South Africa.

"#Dagga: Black people, long before whites arrived here, when we owned our lives and lived in harmony with nature, knew the multiple beneficial uses of the holy herb," the party wrote on its official Twitter page.

The BLF then went on to accuse white people of making dagga "evil", because the herb is something that could be classified as "black".

Briefly.co.za gathered the BLF then said white people took away dagga and substituted it with life threatening substances.

"They took away the plant and gave us their life destroying alcohol and lung devouring cigarettes. #BlackAgenda on #Dagga," another post was captioned.

The party then welcomed the ruling, adding it was time the people were allowed to use dagga again, and even white people can't argue with that.

"Now we return the holy herb to its rightful place as a plant of industrial revolution, of medicinal magic and cultural reproduction. Science is on the side of the truth," the party wrote.
