Veteran Hiplife artiste, Ex-Doe has added his voice to marijuana legalization in Ghana.
According to the artiste, government should have a rethink in the legalization of marijuana but just that there should be stringent measures to regulate its use in public .
He stated emphatically that government should bring a law to arrest those who smoke the ‘substance’ in public in case it is legalized.
Richard Kwasi Siaw whose is affectionately known as Ex-Doe recounted that he used to be a ‘weed’ smoker but certain instances made him to desist from smoking the ‘substance’.
“What made me desist from smoking was when the police frequently search me when driving . The police know all hiding spots for weed in cars. They kept disturbing me. One word I didn’t like was ‘scatter’, when you hear ‘scatter’ ‘scatter’ ‘scatter’, you start running, I got tired of running because of weed. I didn’t have peace,I smoked for about three years but after a while I realized once it hadn’t been legalized, it will not pair well with my brand so I stopped,” he said this a recent interview on Happy FM.
He therefore advised anyone who is a chronic smoker to put a stop to it in order to avoid having issues with the police .
“I have been caught smoking by the police before but once they realize it is me, we settle it right there and they let me go. I wouldn’t advice anyone to touch it once it is not legalized,” he stated.
However, Samini, Blakk Rasta, Kwame Sefa Kayi et al have all advocated for the legalization of marijuana in Ghana.
