Radio personality and reggae musician, Blakk Rasta has emphasized that he loves marijuana.
According to the outspoken ‘Salaga soldier’, although he has never smoked, he has on many occasions, used marijuana.
Speaking on Peace FM’s Entertainment Review on Saturday concerning his issue with Parliament, Blakk Rasta said after he apologised to the legislative body for his alleged claims that about 80% of them use marijuana, he was asked if he will continue talking about the leaf.
“I replied ‘yes’. I’m so passionate about it. I love wee so much and it is what is going to help this country grow. I have never smoked wee but I have used several times,” he stated.
Blakk Rasta affirmed that the country can have positive gains by legalising marijuana.
“Wee is something which can help us economically. Cocoa has disappointed us, gold has disappointed us small so let’s legalise it. Kofi Annan of all people has called for its legalisation,” he said.
A number of musicians have given various reasons to back why they think marijuana should be legalised in Ghana. They have argued that it is highly medicinal and legal in most developed countries..
