The boss of Slip Entertainment and president of the Creative Arts Council, Mark Okraku-Mantey has asked the likes of Samini, Kwaw Kesse and other celebrities who have publicly advocated for the legalization of Marijuana (Wee) to also educate the public on its negative effects.
Mark Okraku-Mantey was of the view that in as much as the illicit drug has positive effects, it also has some negative effects which he thinks celebrities championing its legalisation should touch on too.
Mark Okraku-Mantey in an interview Hitz FM’s Andy Dosty on ‘Daybreak Hitz’ said;
“Weed has become a norm for the youth, whether we like it or not…our musicians have propagated it [use] openly. These celebs are role models for our children and they will pick up these things. They can’t decode or decipher things rightly. Children can easily copy their lifestyle and celebs are not ready to talk about it”.

Mark advising celebrities on how to live a healthy lifestyle added that;
“I never did cigarette or herb. I think with those in that space, it’s more of community, bonding, click and it’s a fraternity. Let’s not discard that marijuana doesn’t have a bad side”.
