Parliament has finally approved the legalization of marijuana known to many as weed in ghana.
Parliament yesterday evening passed the Narcotics Control Commission Bill, 2019 meaning they have decriminalized the use of cannabis for health and industrial purposes thereby joining other African countries hoping to derive economic and health benefits from the substance.
The law also makes the country’s Narcotics Control Board (NACOB) a Commission with enhanced powers to oversee the industrial use of some narcotic substances.
Well, after the announcement some of the popular celebrities who have been fighting for the legalization took to the social media pages to share their excitement.
