Celebrated Ghanaian Reggae musician and radio show host, Abubakar Ahmed, known in showbiz as Blakk Rasta, has challenged the government to set up a marijuana factory, under its “One District, One Factory” policy.
Speaking to DJ Sly on a Sunyani-based radio, Ark FM; he dared the government to put up marijuana factory in the “One District, One Factory” policy because it has a huge market base and abundant commercial value that could help boost the country’s economy.
“Government should put up “Marijuana Factory” in the “One District, One Factory” policy and process them into oil and even milk just like we get milk from soya,” he said.
Blakk Rasta recommended that government should use preventive measures to set-up state farms for the cultivation of marijuana and its production.
“Government ought to start the process with restrictive measures from the security agencies to set-up and monitor State farms for the cultivation of marijuana,” he stressed.
Blakk Rasta called on radio stations in Ghana to take it upon themselves to educate the society about the negative effects of smoking marijuana and also the economic and medical benefits of marijuana just as they do for other things.
