A 116 page, soft-cover, four-part Manual creating a framework for setting up and managing a Private Cannabis Club. The Framework Manual is designed to assist new Club Founders with building the components needed for a PCC.

The Manual is worth countless hours of consultation with a lawyer and systems consultant and the intention is to provide you, the Cannabis enthusiast, with a shortcut to understanding the South African context of Private Cannabis Clubs.

The Framework Manual provides a detailed update on the legal landscape of Cannabis in South Africa and includes our Private Cannabis Club Legal Argument. The second part discusses the design and development guidelines for the 8 modules suggested to the founding process and guides founders on creating these documents according to the operations of their Club. The third part details the maintenance that the system requires to remain effective and valid. Finally, the fourth part lists the documentation discussed in each module for easy reference.

The aim of the Framework Manual is to help Private Cannabis Clubs establish a defendable position in the case of prosecution, while helping its founders understand the operational management involved in a Private Cannabis Club.

This Manual does not attempt to establish any legal or other prescriptive norms or ‘industry’ standards in relation to Private Cannabis Clubs. We believe in the legitimacy and operational adequacy of many Private Cannabis Clubs that for whatever reason do not conform to the recommendations made in this Manual.
