Why is cigarette legal and marijuana still illegal in Ghana? – Dumelo asks
Actor cum politician, John Dumelo, has taken to social media
to ask why tobacco products are legal in the
country but marijuana is illegal.
According to him, he cannot fathom why the system arrests
people who use marijuana but spares those who patronize
cigarettes that have similar tendencies.
He took to the micro-blogging platform, Twitter, to register
his assertion where many Ghanaians, while replying,
gave reasons for the ban on weed in Ghana.
In Ghana, it’s legal to buy and smoke cigarettes. How come
it’s illegal to buy and smoke marijuana? He tweeted.
This isn’t the first time Mr Dumelo is venting his spleen towards
the legalization of marijuana in the country.
- Two persons injured as fire destroys part of Elmina fish market
- Heartbreak as 21-year-old university student takes her own life
- Rastafarian Society seeks to legalize the use of ‘spiritual’ marijuana
Speaking on the business, Mr Dumelo urged the government
to consider decriminalizing it and jump into the marijuana trade.
