THE case against New Germany resident, Lawrence Kuhn, who was charged for the cultivation and distribution of dagga, was postponed until 7 March.

Kuhn made his second appearance at the Pinetown Magistrate’s Court on Monday, 6 February, but the judge postponed the case pending results from the laboratory.

The 59-year-old was arrested at his home on Wehaus Street on Sunday, 15 January, when drugs to the value of R1-million were recovered in an eThekwini Inner South Intelligence driven operation, together with Durban Organised Crime, Durban Metro Police and Shongweni K9.

Kuhn was found in possession of 164.4 kilograms of higher grade dagga and 640 litres of benzine, which were seized by Spiltec. He was arrested for producing and supplying various different cannabis products from his home.

However, Kuhn claims the products were for medicinal use and has been assisting numerous people in their fight against various illnesses. His arrest was met with overwhelming outrage on social media, with many locals hailing the resident as a ‘healer and not a dealer’.
