On Sunday, 2 February, South Africa's Minister of Finance, Tito Mboweni, dared the South African Police Service to arrest him.
He shared photos of the dagga that is growing on his farm to go with this cheeky message.
Mboweni is known for wanting the state to make it legal to grow this plant.
"Arrest me then! It’s growing on my farm."
Mboweni feels the legalisation of weed could only benefit the country, especially when it comes to tax revenue.
"Legalizing this thing = more tax revenue. I need more tax (money) urgently!! Radical Economic Transformation!"
This isn't the first time that Minister Mboweni got cheeky or silly on social media.
Briefly.co.za reported earlier that he treated Mzansi to yet another tasty recipe.
The nation's most thrifty minister is well known for his love of pilchards and he took to social media to be interactive.
In another incident, he also made it known that he wants to remove Lesotho's borders. Mzansi is not sold on the idea.
He has weighed in on the debate surrounding the controversy, saying the border between SA and the land-locked country should be removed.
