The clarion call by some notable celebrities in the country to have weed, popularly called wee in Ghana has hit the ascendency in recent times.
The likes of Blakk Rasta, Samini, John Dumelo, Ras Kuuku, and others have argued that legalizing weed will boost our economy.
The latest person to add her voice to the trending subject is Yvonne Nelson. According to the actress and producer, at least Ghana must legalize it for medicinal purposes.
“I have a glaucoma foundation and while reading and researching, I realised that marijuana actually helps with glaucoma, it’s really a natural remedy that helps bring the pressures down.”
“I believe in other places in the world they control the dosage and all of that. So, for health reasons if we can control it then yeah, they can legalise it, but I think people just abuse it and that’s where I have a problem with it. But it helps with a lot of diseases and illnesses.”
