Reggae dancehall artiste and ‘king’ of live band music in Ghana, Samini has since last week been on a media crusade preaching for the legalization of marijuana.
Samini who happens to be a farmer believes that marijuana possesses benefits to help the country increase their revenue. In an interview with Okay FM, the artiste said;
“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…”
On Joy FM’s drive time show this afternoon, August 27, the artiste has added more fire to his campaign.
Samini told Lexis Bill, the host of the show that he does not understand why state authorities will legalize the buying and selling of a cancerous substance such as tobacco and cigarette but decided to ban weed, which has great medical importance.
The ‘Obaa’ hitmaker also added that he believes the state agencies who continue to ban the weed are sick, presumably in the head.
