Award-winning Reggae/Dancehall artiste, Stonebwoy has expressed his interest in “marijuana” farming.
According to the “Nominate” hitmaker, if the government of Ghana has come to the sudden realisation that ‘weed’ farming is beneficial to the economy, he will consider joining the venture.
Stonebwoy was speaking in an interview on Hitz FM when he made the statement.
” Once the government that regulates the use of marijuana has legalized the cultivation because it knows the purpose and why somethings have to happen. The government will not just commercialize the export of marijuana, they did it because they know how viable it is so as a private businessman if I look at it and if it’s viable why not?” he stated.
In March, 2020, Parliament passed into law the Narcotics Control Commission Bill 2019, legalising the growing of some cannabis for health purposes.
It empowers the Minister for Interior in consultation with other institutions like Ministry of Health to grant licenses for the production of cannabis of not more than 0.3 per cent Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) for industrial and medicinal purposes.
