Ghanaian reggae-dancehall artiste, Ras Kuuku in a recent interview has urged the president of Ghana, Nana Akufo Addo to make him the Ambassador of weed.
According to him, he has the ability to explain to the Ghanaian public the benefits of marijuana to the economy and the human body.
Speaking in an interview with Docta Kay on Accra 100.5 FM’s Nkran Kwaso, Ras Kuuku said “Make me the ambassador for weed. I will build more classroom blocks to stop the double-tracking system. Ghana stands the chance of generating more revenue from weed.”
He, however, cautioned the youth against abusing the substance saying, “no one should use the herbs anyhow without doctors precautions”.
On Friday, 20 March 2020, Ghana joined other African Countries like Malawi, Zimbabwe, South Africa in legalizing marijuana for health and industrial purposes.
Ghana is hoping to derive economic and health benefits from the substance as the legalization is meant to be used for only medical and industrial purposes.
