JOHANNESBURG - Soon you might be able to cultivate a prescribed amount of cannabis and be in possession of over a kilogram stash.

Parliament's Justice Committee will puff and pass the Cannabis for Private Purpose Bill already given the green light by the Cabinet.

In 2018, the highest court in the country declared parts of the Drugs and Drug Trafficking Act, unconstitutional.

The justice department will brief the committee today on the contents of the proposed law.

The bill will face the public consultation process before being signed into law.
