Blakk Rasta, a reggae musician and host of Taxi Driver programme on Hitz FM, has said all indication shows Ghana will soon legalise marijuana.
The controversial reggae artiste told host of Starr Drive Bola Ray, Friday, that several countries around the world have started legalising the drug and in just a matter of time Ghana will follow suit.
According to him, marijuana is only harmful when it is abused.
“It is soon going to be legal; in the interim we hide and do it…I know it and I see it coming.
“Every wise country is legalising it now so [we] waiting for Ghana to get wiser… marijuana was created for a reason and if you use marijuana for those reasons then you are alright but if you use marijuana for selfish reasons then certainly you would suffer for that,” Blakk Rasta said.
Marijuana is illegal in Ghana and one can be jailed if caught publicly smoking it. But some countries around the world have legalised the drug.
Uruguay recently became the first country in the world to make it legal to grow, sell and consume marijuana.
Marijuana is also legalised in some states in the United States of America including Washington and Colorado State.
Marijuana is also tolerated in Netherlands though it is still illegal. Possession of small amounts has been decriminalised and the drug can be bought from licensed “coffee shops”.
