A man true to his principles! Kwaw Kese the weed smoker says if any of his kids start using the substance, he’ll allow them to do so.
There’s currently a serious push going on for weed to be legalized in Ghana and Kwaw Kese is one of the ‘main men’ involved in that effort, alongside Blakk Rasta.
Speaking with the Showbiz newspaper, Kwaw Kese was asked what he’ll do if any of his children was smoking weed and he said he wouldn’t stop them.
“I will not force my children to stop using marijuana if they think it is good for them.” he told the paper.
“It is like food. If my child walks up to me and says daddy, I think weed is good for me and I want to use it, I can’t do anything about it as long as they do not abuse it or use if for the wrong reasons,” he said.
Kwaw Kese, like Blakk Rasta, then got into the benefits we could derive if we legalized the product.
“We can export it, tax it and it will help boost our economy. There are medicinal benefits as well. If Kofi Annan has come out to back this then it means it is something good. That man I know is not someone who falls for just anything and I am glad he has joined the movement.” he continued.
“Those who use weed are not wayward people, they are not irresponsible. We need to educate people so that the negative stereotyping will stop.”
