According to Nana Agyemang, the banned substance can save the lives of many individuals suffering from some health conditions including cancer.
Speaking on Accra-based Class FM, the sports personality insisted that he is ready, thus government should grant him the license to launch the legitimate business to the benefit of all.

The sports analyst maintained that he sees marijuana as a “very important plant, that can help us even sustain our lives much longer.”
Nana, in his conversation, revealed that smoking of marijuana sometimes can deal with other ailments that people are suffering from.
He therefore called on various stakeholders to have a broader debate and consultations on the banned substance.
“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,” he added.
