Samini has returned to his beloved crusade for marijuana legalization and this time he’s also calling for permission to be able to grow it for commercial use.
According to him weed should be legalized only for commercial but not recreational use.
Samini, in his recent and eventful interview on Okay Fm, said marijuana farming can make Ghana a lot of money and must be allowed.
“I am a farmer. I need licence to grow wee and export it to the industries that use wee for medicinal purposes and every other thing important apart from smoking. If I get the licence to grow wee, I’ll supply to the medical industry, the oil industry…the paper industry, you know different industries which use marijuana as raw materials as base for what they produce”, Samini said.
The veteran singer added that the commercial use would be very lucrative and smoking can still be kept illegal.
“You should allow farmers to grow because every country in the world has what is viable in the soil…Other places also grow other things as well as wee and sell to other places which don’t grow but it needs it for jeans, paper, oil and soap production, and every other thing apart from smoking”.
