Nene Ogah Osuagbo I, Chief of Great Ametafor in the Shai Osudoku Traditional Area has appealed to the government of Nana Akufo-Addo to establish a Marijuana factory in his community.
The conversation around the legalization of the herb that is estimated to be a multibillion dollar industry has been rife in Ghana.
Many countries around the world have legalized both the recreational and medicinal use of marijuana.
In Africa, South Africa, Lesotho, Malawi and recently Zimbabwe have legalised the medicinal use of the herb.
The conversation is gaining momentum in Ghana and the voice of Nene Oga Osuagbo I will add to the numerous voices calling for an honest discussion on the matter before Ghana misses out on the economic benefits of the plant.
