Ghana has legalized the use of cannabis for health and industrial purposes as it joins other African countries hoping to derive economic and health benefits from the substance.
On Friday the country’s Parliament passed into law the Narcotics Control Commission Bill, 2019.
Many Ghanaians are rejoicing over the move and one such person is dancehall artist Shatta Wale.
He applauded the government for the steps taken.
He wrote on his Twitter page.
Shatta Wale is believed to be a chain smoker but he usually rebuts those allegations even though he’s mostly seen smoking.
