Ghanaian actor/entrepreneur, John Dumelo is calling on Ghanaian leaders to cultivate marijuana for its economic benefits.
In his view, the actor stated that government must consider raking revenue from the cultivation of marijuana to boost the economy.
He explained that the country can opt to export marijuana after cultivation if not for local use.
In a series of posts on his Twitter page, he wrote: “A lot of countries and even religious institutions are cashing in on the Marijuana trade. Here’s my take. The Ghana gov can look into setting up the farm. The marijuana will be solely for export, no local consumption”.
“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 added.
Founder of the Danquah Institute, Gabby Asare Otchere Darko has also made a similar call.
