Post created on 5:07 pm
Chairman of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA), Buba Marwa has opposed demands for the legalisation of cannabis in Nigeria.
Marwa said the nation cannot afford to mortgage the lives of the citizens for financial gains by legalising cannabis.
He said this on Monday, in response to earlier calls by Ondo State governor, Rotimi Akeredolu for the legalisation of cultivation of Cannabis Sativa in the country.
While addressing journalists in Abuja, the nation’s capital ahead of the 2021 World Drug Day, Marwa said it is not acceptable to NDLEA and that the agency will continue to burn down marijuana farms and prosecute whoever is caught doing the business.
