Speaking on Cooks and Braggarts, a cooking show hosted Yvonne Okoro, Mr. Dumelo said the country can benefit more from the medicinal advantages of Marijuana after it is legalised.

“When you go to some of the western countries, it [Marijuana] has been legalised for health purposes and we can also do same,” he stated.

Mr. Dumelo said, “If alcohol and cigarettes are legal in Ghana, why not marijuana.”

Expressing his thoughts on how the recreational use of the drug could be controlled, the entrepreneur said authorities in Ghana can do research of their own and later put up structures needed to prevent the abuse of the drug after it has been legalised.

He explained Canada put those structures in place after legalising marijuana in October 2018.

“If you look at places like Holland, California and Colorado where the drug has been legalised crime rates are low,” he added.
