The United States and Canada really have led the way with marijuana becoming nationwide in both countries in just a few years. The readership of Bareleaf.fr eagerly awaits France to follow suit with its own legalization passing hopefully soon. After all, the health benefits of marijuana far outweigh the risks and its enough revenue to rebuild the Notre Dame several times over! With the discourse changing surrounding the legalisation, many people feel that marijuana should be legal within their countries. Countries similar to the United States and Canada have found their way to accepting that marijuana, and its offspring have medicinal properties that may be able to help those that use it to improve their wellbeing. Not to mention the economic boom the marijuana industry has seen since the introduction of dispensaries and recreational marijuana with wellness companies similar to Hytek Medical – see hytekmed.com – standing at the front of the medicinal marijuana industry. However, it’s not just Europe that wants marijuana to be legalised as Ghanaian actor, John Dumelo has stated that marijuana should be legalised in Ghana.
According to the award-winning actor, marijuana has a lot of medical advantages which could benefit the country if legalised.
“When you go to some of the western countries, it [Marijuana] has been legalised for health purposes and we can also do same. If alcohol and cigarettes are legal in Ghana, why not marijuana”, the actor disclosed.
The actor stated that the abuse of the drug could be controlled if the authorities research to put up structures and measures to prevent the drug from being abused.
He also disclosed that Canada legalised marijuana in October 2018 and put up measures to prevent people from abusing the drug.
The actor who is also an entrepreneur stated that the legalisation of marijuana will not increase crime rates and mental illness in the country but can be used for medicinal purposes.
“If you look at places like Holland, California and Colorado where the drug has been legalised crime rates are low”, he stated.
