The ‘grandpapa’ himself, Reggie Rockstone, has come out in strong support of the legalization of marijuana in Ghana.
According to the VVIP elder statesman, alcohol is legal and causes side affects such as what weed is accused of but we have no problem with that.
Rockstone, speaking on Peace Fm, said Ghana as a country should stop the hypocrisy and legalize it, pointing to revenue generation as others have said.
“Do you know how much revenue Ghana could derive from “wee”, go to Amsterdam and see for yourself, I know people who use to smoke from my infancy and they are still alive kicking strong and healthy.” Rockstone said.
“We [are] in a country where people drink alcohol and misbehave but still producers of alcoholic drinks have been given the license to operate and advertise on radio and TV, so why do we criminalize marijuana, this hypocrisy must stop” he added.
According to Reggie, no less an icon than Bob Marley smoked weed and was not crazy, so the fearmongering about the substance should stop.
“…Whether we like it or not people are already using it, I own a club so I know what am talking about. Are people trying to tell me that Bob Marley was crazy because he smoked wee, no………” he opined.
