Patapaa calls for the legalisation of cannabis

Musician Justice Amoah, famously known as Patapaa, has called for legalisation of marijuana or cannabis in Ghana.

Patapaa joins Kwame Sefa Kayi, Kwesi Pratt, Samini and Uncle Ebo Whyte as public figures singing this tune.

The "One Corner" hitmaker made his statement in an interview with SVTV Africa. The musician seemed to think that other countries were on a better path than Ghana.

He cited the happenings in France to buttress his argument on legalisation.

He is quoted as saying: “In France when a citizen is busted holding a piece of weed, he will be released. This should tell you that marijuana isn’t a bad thing.”

He further talked about the benefits of smoking the plant.

"Yes weed is neither cocaine nor Tramadol, people smoke weed to learn because it enhances academic performance. This same is used to make human hair creams and many others," said the musician.
