The burning of WEE farms in Ghana proves that we think backwards
The phenomenon in which huge marijuana farms are set ablaze in Ghana by the Narcotics Control Commission has been described as backward thinking by Ras Kuuku.
Talking to Amansan Krakye on Kastle FM in Cape Coast, the Ghanaian artiste was questioned about his thoughts on the incessant burning of huge ‘ganja’ farms across the country.
He answered “We are more than backward if there’s a word beyond backward that’s where we find ourselves as a country because in these modern times where countries are legalizing marijuana we’re here burning huge ganja farms.
“Even if we package our marijuana and export it the proceeds can be used to do a lot of roads in Ghana and we’ve been saying this for a long time but one day I know they will say that we are right from the unset,” he remarked.
He justified “We are crying of poverty because we need money to fix this country but we wake up every day to news of huge marijuana farms being set ablaze to just waste away whilst it can fetch us money.
“We didn’t get anything from gold, diamond too nothing, manganese gave us nothing, bauxite too the same, timber and rubber brought us nothing so the only thing we can make money from is marijuana,” he ended on Kastle Drive Show
