Ghana can profit significantly from the legal marijuana market-John Dumelo
An agribusiness entrepreneur named John Dumelo argued that Ghana should legalize marijuana and start making products from it in February of this year to help the country’s economy.
He says that Ghana should think about legalizing the use, cultivation, and export of marijuana-based products, even though it has casinos and lets people drink and smoke.
“Casinos, cigarettes, and alcohol are legal in Ghana, but marijuana is illegal.” While we spend millions of dollars importing alcohol and cigarettes, we can make billions of dollars exporting goods made from marijuana.
Gabby claims that Ghana can enter this industry and earn US $70 billion in 6 years.

About Indian Hemp
Hemp is one of the most sustainable, planet-friendly plants around—it’s also extremely nutritious.
Native Americans used the fibrous layer of the stem to make rope, bags, mats, and nets (Tikkanen, 2017). The name of the plant comes from this use because it is an excellent substitute for hemp for these uses. The milky white juice of the plant includes latex, which has been used to make natural rubber.
Medicinally, Indian Hemp has been used to induce vomiting (emetic) and sweating (diaphoretic), and increase urine production (diuretic) (diuretic). The most common use of Indian hemp was in the treatment of swelling or edoema (dropsy).
An eco-friendly crop like hemp could save the globe at this critical time of catastrophic environmental deterioration and climate change. Hemp is a harvestable, biodegradable crop from which recyclable, renewable, and reusable items can be produced. Products that cannot be recycled are promised to break down as rapidly as possible in the environment.
