I'm not sure whether the chemical tests that would be available to you are reliable ( that's not my area of expertise ). A hiding, let alone with a sjambok, is child abuse, and totally unacceptable --- and completely unhelpful in this sort of situation. He should be taken to see a good shrink who works with children and adolescents, who, if smpathetic and pleaant, is likely to find out far more of what you all need to know, and can advise usefully on how best to help tge child. If he is indeed smoking dagga at 14, that is grounds for concern, and needs help to help him to want to stop ; and the experience of such a beating will probably cause more damage than the dagga, and will also need to be dealt with.
CC --- if he had more hidings like that, he may have started smoking even earlier.

MAYBE IF HE HAD MORE HIDDINGS IN HIS LIFE HE WOULD NOT BE SMOKING DAGGA NOW

Physical abuse will certainly not help the situation. Take him to a psychologist for counselling.

How can you hit a 14yr old boy!
Shame, I feel sorry for him and I think that was the wrong thing to do even though he is smoking dagga.
