Veteran Ghanaian Highlife musician, George Jahrah has added his voice to the growing concerns from Ghanaians urging the government to legalize marijuana.
In a recent interview, he noted although he doesn’t smoke himself, however, he is of the view that it should be decriminalized.
He willingly threw his support for the late Ghanaian diplomat, Kofi Annan’s assertion that the government should duel much on the negative side of the hard drug but also think about the benefits that the country can derive after decriminalizing it.
“I don’t think weed helps anyone perform better. I am hyper so I don’t know how I would react to drugs. My dad was a soldier so I don’t like it. I have never smoked before but Kofi Annan asked it to be decriminalized.
I know someone who smokes but works very hard. We should listen to Kofi Annan, I think he was a knowledgeable person advocating for it so we should research on it,” he said.
