Legendary Ghanaian journalist Kwami Sefa Kayi has joined the long list of high profile personalities calling for the legalization of marijuana known in local parlance as ‘Wee’.
The Peace FM morning show host made his stance known on his Kokrookoo show on Wednesday, saying he is an “ardent advocate for the legalization of marijuana for medicinal and research purposes.”
“I am an advocate for it. So that’s my bias; I am for it…We have what they call social and recreational, that is one leg. I am not for that,” he added.
“There’s a research and medicinal. I am for that. Unfortunately, in our growing up and everything; it’s been social and recreational we’ve looking at. So, we’re programmed to see it as a bad thing but the research and medicinal is a completely different era.”
Notable personalities and celebrities including Prof Alex Dodoo, the late Kofi Annan, Kwaw Kese, and Kwesi Pratt have all called for the legalization of marijuana.
