Imo State Governor

This is what happens when you have been brainwashed to believe drugs are so bad that anything else is practically better than using them, although there’s nothing factual about such an outlook.
A lot of Ghanaians are reflexively against marijuana but looking at it as a substance which alters human chemistry, it’s not different from alcohol or cigarrettes, both of which are legal.
But even if you are against marijuana, it is absurd to take it to the level of claiming using it is worse than armed robbery. Armed robbers literally kill people whilst many marijuana users function okay in society without any challenges.
However, according to the Governor of Nigeria’s Imo State, Rochas Okorocha, being a marijuana smoker is worse than being an armed robber.

He reportedly told some youth that it is better to be an armed robber and rob people of their belongings than to be a smoker.

“You all know what the law says about Marijuana(weed)? Weed has killed my Children in Imo state. Anybody selling weed or consuming it, that person’s house will be demolished.
“Where we are now, it is better for someone to be an Armed Robber than to Smoke weed(Goof)”. he said.
