Gyedu-Blay Ambolley Calls For Weed To Be Legalised: ‘The Ten Commandments Did Not Say Do Not Smoke’

Gyedu-Blay Ambolley has joined the ringing calls for the legalisation of weed in Ghana, saying the problem is not with the plant but with its abuse.
Gyedu-Blay, speaking on Class Fm in Accra Wednesday, said that growing up, he learnt many things in the bible, but nowhere did it say do not smoke.
The self proclaimed inventor of rap music said that legalisation is the way forward, and that there is nothing wrong with marijuana, except when it is abused.
“Marijuana is a God made thing. It grows like any other leave that grows and every leave that grows has something that it offers to a human.” He said, echoing the thoughts of A Plus from a few days ago.
“So, for a white man to come and tell me that: ‘If you do this you will go crazy, put a stop to it, send it to the police and all that,’ there is a reason why they did that. Because they know that you will become more conscious of the dos and don’ts of life and they don’t want that. There is a big enlightenment that comes from smoking marijuana.” He continued.
“Like I said, too much of everything is bad, so, you just make sure that musically or composition wise, you just take a little bit and the ideas start coming, so, the abuse of that is where the problem is.
“The only thing that is there that I know is that when we were growing up they gave us the 10 commandments. The 10 commandments said do not steal, do not bear false witness, do not kill, but it did not say do not smoke. Whereas it is not in the 10 commandment…and if I do that to hurt somebody then that is where the problem is going to come”,
He continued that the proper path forward is to legalise and tax it, to generate revenue for the country as is happening in The Netherlands and soon in the US.
“For the legalisation of that, I think they need to, because when you go to Holland it is legalised. If you want to buy you go to the store and buy it. There is no police chasing anybody…but eventually it is going to be legalised because the Americans are legalising it [after] all that they said, they have started making money out of it, taxes and all that, likewise in Holland. So, for me, it is something that I tasted when I was about 17 years and it did not do anything bad to me”. The ‘Simigwa’ hitmaker added.
