South Africans can grow and smoke weed at home

The Constitutional Court has handed down its judgement on the private use of marijuana, as reported by eNCA.

Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo has upheld an earlier high court judgment. The judgment decriminalises the use of dagga at home, stated the report.

How does this affect the purchase of it from a dealer or someone else that has it available?

Probably still not legal. I think you can only consume what you grow yourself, and at home...

Can someone explain what does means?

The court ultimately found: "This Court must invoke its powers under s 172 (1) (b) of the Constitution to order a suspension of the declaration of invalidity for a realistic period to ensure Parliament may correct the defect. In my view, a period of 24 months from the date of this judgment would be appropriate.
