AT long last Ghana legalises Cannabis for health and Industrial purposes
Most people nd citizens are always on government Nd on our judiciary system to pass and agreed to the legalization of the “wee” Nd surprisingly Nd profitably,
Ghana has legalized the use of cannabis for health and industrial purposes.
The decriminalization came as Parliament passed the Narcotics Control Commission Bill, 2019 on Friday evening.
The law also makes the country’s Narcotics Control Board (NACOB) a Commission with enhanced powers to oversee the industrial use of some narcotic substances.
The Commission, however, will have the mandate to control and eliminate the trafficking of prohibited narcotic drugs to ensure public safety.
The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that around 147 million people, or 2.5 percent of the world population, consume cannabis.
On the African continent, Malawi, Zimbabwe, Zambia and Lesotho, and South Africa are among counties that have decriminalised medicinal cannabis use.
