Renowned highlife musician, George Jahraa, has joined the debate on whether Ghana should legalize marijuana or not.
Many industry players such as Samini, Blakk Rasta, Kwaw Kese, John Dumelo, and even Stonebwoy have advocated for the Government of Ghana to decriminalize the drug for export.
In an interview on Adom FM’s Work and Happiness show on Thursday, the ‘Driver Banza’ hitmaker said he doesn’t patronize marijuana but supports the late Ghanaian diplomat, Kofi Annan’s assertion that the government should not only look at 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 in Twi.
