It shouldn’t be a big surprise if sometime within the next few years, marijuana legalization gets to the top of the agenda in Ghana.
Numerous celebs have given their support to the cause, from Blakk Rasta to Samini to incoming MP, John Dumelo himself.
The latest to join the family is Yaa Asantewaa, Dumelo’s bestie Yvonne Nelson. Politically active Yvonne, who received the name after leading the ‘Dumsor’ demo, says Ghana must legalize weed, at least for medicinal purposes.
: “I have a glaucoma foundation and while reading and researching, I realised that marijuana actually helps with glaucoma, it’s really a natural remedy that helps bring the pressures down,” Yvonne said.
“I believe in other places in the world they control the dosage and all of that. So, for health reasons if we can control it then yeah, they can legalise it, but I think people just abuse it and that’s where I have a problem with it. But it helps with a lot of diseases and illnesses.”
