It Makes Sense To Legalize Weed In Ghana — Says Stonebwoy

1 min


The calls for marijuana aka weed aka ‘tampi’ to be legalized in Ghana has received another boost with Stonebwoy lending his name to the cause.
According to the highly respected dancehall star, it makes complete sense for the substance to be legalized, especially due to its medicinal use.
Reggae musician/radio presenter Blakk Rasta has been leading the calls for legalization and so far, he seems to be convincing some people to get on board.
Speaking on Adom Fm, Stonebwoy said it makes complete sense for the legalization of weed to happen in Ghana.
“I believe decriminalizing it makes sense [Especially] for medical usage.” he said.
“Those [Countries] that have done that have rules towards it. Imagine it will [be] very unfair that when you handle something in a form drugs not only marijuana and you are using it for medical purpose yet you are arrested, I believe it isn’t fair, reason I believe it should be looked at…” he added.
So far, the campaign for legalization seems to be getting some supporters behind it, including the aforementioned Blakk Rasta, Kofi Annan, A Plus, Stonebwoy, Samini and Kwaw Kese. Of course, most of these are showbiz people and if it would ever happen Blakk Rasta needs politicians to come out strongly for it, which would probably never happen in the foreseeable future.
