Ghanaian actor and known opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) activist, John Dumelo has advised the Ghanaian government to go into the marijuana business so as to generate more revenue for the country.
In a twitter post, the actor cum farmer observed that a lot of countries and even religious institutions are cashing in on the Marijuana trade and so if the Ghana government has no intention of legalizing it, at least it can take it up and set up farms for only export reasons and not for local consumption.
“A lot of countries and even religious institutions are cashing in on the Marijuana trade. Here’s my take. The Ghana government can look into setting up the farm. The marijuana will be solely for export, no local consumption.”
He tweeted again that, Ghana can cash in on the billions of dollars generated from the ‘weed’ business and use that for infrastructure and paying of salaries as the country has the capacity to generate the needed revenue and it will only be done by trading and not talking.
“That way Ghana can cash in on the billions of dollars. We need revenue for infrastructure, paying of salaries etc. We have all it takes to generate that. Let’s stop talking and start trading.”
He joins celebrities like EIB’s KOD who for some time now has been posting on his Facebook page the value of marijuana trade and its legalization.
