Host of Peace FM’s Morning Show “Kokrokoo” and Journalist of the Year 2016, Kwami Sefa Kayi has joined the crusade for the legalization of marijuana in Ghana.
Although marijuana or cannabis, popularly known as wee is against the laws of the country and when caught in contact with it is dealt with in the court of law.
In his view he thinks the government could put measures in place to control the use of marijuana, but for it to be outlawed entirely as it stands now, may cost the country hugely in the near future.
According to him, marijuana is useful for medicinal and research purposes, and when put into good use will be a great avenue for socio-economic development.
He started“I am an advocate for it. So that’s my bias; I am for it…We have what they call social and recreational, that is one leg. I am not for that. There’s a research and medicinal. I am for that. Unfortunately, in our growing up and everything; it’s been social and recreational we’ve looking at. So, we’re programmed to see it as a bad thing but the research and medicinal is a completely different era”.
