Ace sports journalist, Nana kwaku Agyemang has said he is working towards securing license to grow cannabis in Ghana because it has the potential of changing the lives of the Ghanaian populace.
According to him, the drug has several advantages that can be tapped into to help the country’s economy and also help address several health challenges.
“Marijuana is a very important plant, that can help us even sustain our lives much longer. If you smoke it sometimes it can deal with other ailments that people are suffering from. I want a licence where I can grow cannabis legitimately and export it to other countries who have a proper research and development department that can turn this into serious medicine to help us all and generate revenue for government through taxes.”
He added that “I think we need to take a second look and have a national debate because there is a serious lack of understanding. Cannabis has been bastardised as something that Rastafarians just put in there and smoke [but] it is much more than that”.
