There Is No Scientific Evidence That Links Marijuana To Any Disease – Seun Kuti




BREAKING: Seun Kuti Storms Lagos Police Commissioner's Office After Assaulting Officer

Grammy-nominated afrobeat singer, Seun Kuti, has suggested that the Nigerian government should consider legalising marijuana.

The singer argued that there is no proven evidence that marijuana use causes any disease.

He asserted that Nigeria has lost its unique strain of marijuana because of the ban on it in the country.

The maverick singer said many countries, including Israel, which is regarded by Nigerian Christians as “Holy Land”, legalised marijuana.

Speaking in a recent Instagram live session with fans, Kuti said, “Nobody can show me any scientific evidence that links marijuana use to any disease.

“Africa used to have the best marijuana in the world but we’ve lost that strain of marijuana that they use to grow in Obiarukwu forest in Asaba and Sapele in the Delta region. We’ve lost it because she didn’t encourage the cultivation.

“Now, the West have the best marijuana. Germany is going to legalise it very soon. France, Britain and America are talking about it too. It’s already legalised in Canada.

“Has Nigeria government independently carried out any research on marijuana use? Even in Israel, the land of your ‘lord’, the ‘holy land’, marijuana is legal. In fact, Israel is at the forefront of medical marijuana research.”
