Abrantie Amakye Dede, a legendary singer from Ghana, has urged the authorities to make marijuana use legal in his country.
He contends that stereotypes of marijuana users as nasty people are untrue and deceptive.
“Smoking marijuana is not a sign of a horrible person.
The singer of the song “Mmaa p3 sokoo” said to Nana Aba Anamoah on Starr Chat on Wednesday, “I think the government should legalize it.
He did, however, emphasize that he does not smoke himself.John Dumelo, a well-known actor, has also advocated legalizing marijuana due to its favorable economic effects.
“By legalizing marijuana, Germany stands to gain billions of euros in tax revenue.
Then, despite the fact that Ghana produces the best marijuana in the world, we would go back and borrow the same amount of money with interest for our development.”Aren’t we clever?”
Professor Carl Hart, a neuroscientist and drug researcher at Columbia University, asked Ghana to reconsider its stance on the plant in 2019.
The Professor stated that “people are making money out of this and we have to implement it and improve on its education” at a period when the legalization of the substance attracted a great deal of public attention but the Bill had not yet been approved by Parliament.
