The call for the legalization of marijuana is getting louder and the latest person to add his voice to this clarion call is Ras Kuuku aka Puom.
Expressing his opinion as to why he wants the illicit drug to be decriminalized, the Reggae/Dancehall artiste said marijuana is more beneficial and expensive than cocoa and Ghana will make a huge profit if the herb is legalized.
“Ghana, we are wasting time you know, compare the price of cocoa to marijuana and you’ll know that cocoa is a small boy nowhere close to marijuana.
Uganda and other countries are exporting marijuana to Canada, USA and other places making millions of dollars. Marijuana is more beneficial than cocoa, we should stop comparing the two.
Marijuana is 4,000 times expensive than cocoa. The government is wasting time imprisoning people who use marijuana instead of legalizing it. Ghana will make millions of dollars if the herb is legalized”, he stated.
The likes of Sister Deborah, Kwaw Kese, Blakk Rasta, Samini, John Dumelo and several other celebrities have called on authorities to make the drug legal citing its numerous health benefit and monetary returns as the main factor.
