This news made a lot of waves on social media, especially when some Ghanaian celebrities hailed the President of Ghana for making that decision. The likes of Shatta Wale, Black Rasta, Samini and many others.

However, one man who has been on the toes of the Government with regards to cannabis is Nana Kwaku Agyeman, the Hemp Association of Ghana.

A lot of innocent people are languishing behind bars, families destroyed and the possibility of them become citizens and not spectators become lost!
