On Friday the nation’s Parliament passed into law the Narcotics Control Commission Bill, 2019.
Ghana has legitimized the utilization of cannabis for Health and Industrial purposes as it joins other African countries planning to infer monetary and medical advantages from the substance.
However, prior to the report on Legalization of Cannabis (Marijuana) in Ghana, a some Ghanaian celebrities and personalities like Kofi Annan, Samini, Fameye, Yvonne Nelson, Abeiku Santana, Blakk Rasta have battled for the Government to take this initiative for a long time.
Following the Legalization, many of them have responded to the reports by offering their thanks to the administration for passing the law.
The law currently makes the nation’s Narcotics Control Board (NACOB) a Commission with enhanced powers to supervise industrial use of the narcotic substances.
See the reactions from some of the Celebrities below:
Now the police can concentrate on other #realcrimes and leave the Rastaman in peace … the random and embarrassing search of any and every Rasta man because it’s presumed that he’s a smoker and for that matter a criminal is finally a thing of the past ? Wooow. I have stories 🤦🏾♂️
