Musician, Stonebwoy, is grateful to the Parliament of Ghana for legalizing Indian hemp for industrial use.

He believes that this is a step towards the goal of legalizing it for personal use.

Stonebwoy was speaking on Accra-based Starr FM when he made this known.

“Shoutout to the constitution for actually legalizing the commercial use of Indian hemp,” he said.

When asked if he smokes, he said, “Jah Mighty, blessed. But the reality is that we thank the government for legalizing the industrial use of Indian hemp”.

Ghana’s parliament has passed into law the Narcotics Control Commission Bill, 2023 as a result, the Ministry of Interior has been bestowed with the responsibility of issuing licenses for the cultivation of cannabis, opening up avenues for the utilization of this versatile plant in various beneficial applications.

This milestone achievement comes after the Supreme Court intervened and declared section 43 of the law as unconstitutional, thereby hindering the smooth passage of the legislation.

Section 43 of Act 1019 previously authorized the Minister, based on the Commission’s recommendation, to grant licenses for the cultivation of cannabis, commonly known as “wee” in Ghana. However, this provision has been eliminated due to its unconstitutional nature.
