Actor and Politician John Dumelo has taken to twitter to questioned why it is illegal to to smoke or buy marijuana aka “Weed” but legal for the sale and of cigarettes made from tobacco?
It is unclear what is informing his question but earlier today Ghana Police Service announced the arrest of large sum of contraband goods suspected to be marijuana in Ashaiman of the Greater Accra Region.
For years the argument about the legalization of the smoking, farming and sale of marijuana has been characterized with arguments.
While others believe it’s purely medicinal and also means of creating revenue, others believe legalizing its usage in Ghana will be “suicidal” since the abuse will bring issues.
The farming of marijuana we are told has been legalized but that should only be for medicinal usage only and should be documented from regulative body like the Food and Drugs authority.
Marijuana remains one of the most used drugs globally and countries like America have legalized its farming and usage and that brings in huge some of revenues.
Below is how John Dumelo captured his post on twitter.
