Award-winning Ghanaian actor, farmer and entrepreneur, John Dumelo says the government should consider creating marijuana farms purely for exportation concerning the legalization of marijuana in the country with no local consumption.
Mr. Dumelo believes that the marijuana trade is a great way to generate revenue for the country where billions of dollars can be made to solve the problems of infrastructure, paying of salaries and other vital problems the country is facing.
He explained that a lot of countries and religious institutions are making huge profits with respect to marijuana trade, hence it is very essential for Ghana to also engage in it solely for exportation with no local consumption.
He said this in a tweet on Saturday, June 15, 2019 stating that “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.
