The New York Times published an article recently titled “Grandma’s Grow Gold in Swaziland”.
The article, written by Lydia Polgreen, describes how grandmother, Khathazile, took in her 11 orphaned grandchildren and grows marijuana to feed, clothe and keep them in school.
““Without weed, we would be starving,” explained Khathazile, who asked that only her middle name be used.”
