Stonebwoy has admonished his fans and Ghanaians that the legalisation of cannabis in Ghana does not decriminalize its usage around town.
Ghana on 20th March 2020 joined other African countries in the legalization of cannabis for health and industrial purposes.
On Friday the country’s Parliament passed into law the Narcotics Control Commission Bill, 2019.
The law now makes the country’s Narcotics Control Board (NACOB) a Commission with enhanced powers to oversee the industrial use of some narcotic substances.
The Commission, however, will have the mandate to control and eliminate the trafficking of prohibited narcotic drugs to ensure public safety.
Stonebwoyhas, therefore, disseminate to his followers on social media to be aware of the criminalities of the usage of cannabis around town in due respect to its purpose of legalization. He took to his snap to register:
“The legalisation of the herb is for “health and industrial purposes, i repeat “health and industrial purposes”… I don’t think that sounds like decriminalizing and Freedom of usage around town.
