Kwaw Kesse is not the only prominent person who is championing the legalization of marijuana, ace media broadcaster, Kwame Sefa Kayi has also shared his two cents about the legalization of the ‘Holy Herb”.
According to the revered morning show host, Ghana must be smart because other nations are cashing out big time on the marijuana business.
Whiles speaking in an interview on Joy Tv, he said;
Why are we focusing everything on the smoking of the herb and we’ve zeroed in on that and so from when before independence, we were burning marijuana farms, marijuana farms because it is on our statutory books. If those who used to arrest people for transporting, importing, or exporting marijuana, today, are trading among themselves, today, have found medicinal value for marijuana, why are we still sitting here arresting people for possessing (marijuana).
So he has one roll of marijuana; something small and we will jail him for 10 years and yet, it is a multi-billion dollar business out there. Why are we refusing to think outside the box?
