Ghanaian actor cum politician, John Dumelo has revived the campaign on the legalization of marijuana in Ghana.
According to the Ayawaso West Wuogon 2020 National Democratic Congress(NDC) parliamentary candidate, he still finds it difficult to understand why Ghanaians are eligible to buy and smoke cigarettes but can’t do the same to marijuana.
In a Twitter post, he wrote;
“In Ghana, it’s legal to buy and smoke cigarettes. How come it’s illegal to buy and smoke marijuana?”
The buying and selling of marijuana are illegal in Ghana. However, a law has been passed legalizing the growing of some cannabis for medicinal purposes.
In Ghana, it’s legal to buy and smoke cigarettes. How come it’s illegal to buy and smoke marijuana?
