- Samini wants Ghana to decriminalize weed and give farmers the license to grow
- He opines that Ghana's economy will benefit from the growing of 'weed'
Popular dancehall act Samini believes it's high time Ghana legalises the use of marijuana, insisting it's decriminalisation will give the economy a huge boost.
According to him, there is no need placing a ban on the smoking of marijuana, while also admitting that he sometimes "smokes weed".
In his view, the economic gains the sale of the substance will bring to the country must be look at, suggesting that farmers be given "the license to grow weed since it does well on our soil and allows them to export the substance."
Appearing on the Starr Chat show Wednesday with Bola Ray on Starr FM, Samini said he knows marijuana "is illegal" in Ghana but he smokes it in his "privacy".
He also confessed smoking the substance while on a trip to the USA earlier this year, saying: "I smoked weed in Seattle – because it is legal there."
Asked what else he smokes, the award-winning artiste, said he doesn't "smoke cigarettes", adding that he only smokes weed "depending on my mood".
Ghana's laws prohibits the smoking or growing of marijuana without permit.
