WHY ARE THE 'BIG MEN' NOT BEING ARRESTED? - KWESI PRATT ON LEGALIZATION OF WEED

• "Why are the big dealers not being arrested and it is only the small ones? We all know there are some big men who smoke; lawyers, doctors, civil and public servants but why are they not being arrested and only the poor and the disadvantaged?

“Ghana needs to take a cue from other progressive countries and consider alternatives to punishment or incarceration of people who use drug and other alternatives to ending the criminalization of people who use drugs.

• Criminalization of drug use and possession has led to the arrest prosecution and incarceration of thousands of Ghanaians across the country,” the report noted.

MR. KWESI PRATT JNR, MANAGING EDITOR OF THE NEW CRUSADING GUIDE NEWSPAPER

A report by the Parliamentary Committee on Defence and Interior is recommending the decriminalization of the possession and use of marijuana (wee).


I DO NOT UNDERSTAND WHY OTHER COUNTRIES ARE MAKING FORTUNES OUT OF MARIJUANA, YET GHANA IS 'BURNING THEM' (FARMS) AND ARRESTING PEOPLE WHO CULTIVATE OR USE IT.

Ghana needs to take a cue from other progressive countries and consider alternatives to punishment or incarceration of people who use drug and other alternatives to ending the criminalization of people who use drugs. Criminalization of drug use and possession has led to the arrest prosecution and incarceration of thousands of Ghanaians across the country,” the report noted.

Kwesi Pratt Jnr, Managing Editor of the New Crusading Guide newspaper seems to agree with the report.

He does not understand why other countries are making fortunes out of marijuana, yet Ghana is 'burning them' (farms) and arresting people who cultivate or use it.

"Why are the big dealers not being arrested and it is only the small ones? We all know there are some big men who smoke; lawyers, doctors, civil and public servants but why are they not being arrested and only the poor and the disadvantaged? Meanwhile, there are other countries who have given people license to cultivate marijuana" he indicated further.
