Ondo State Governor and Chairman of the South-West Governors’ Forum, Rotimi Akeredolu, says it is important for the country to legalise the cultivation of cannabis for medicinal purposes.

He spoke on Thursday on a live interview programme tagged ‘Governor Speaks’, which is part of activities lined up in commemoration of his 100 days of his second term in office. Akeredolu was sworn in for a second term on February 24, 2021 after he won the October 10, 2020 governorship election on the platform of the All Progressives Congress.

Speaking during the live interview, the governor said cannabis could be a strong foreign exchange earner for Nigeria if its cultivation was legalised.

Akeredolu said,
Quote
“We must find a way to legalise cultivation of cannabis for medicinal purposes. There is nothing wrong about it. We are only shooting ourselves in the foot. It is a foreign exchange earner for people outside the country. People want this. We ourselves, even our pharmacies want to develop…

“I travelled out of here and I was in Thailand trying to study the cultivation of cannabis for pharmaceutical use. We did all these, we even went there with NDLEA (National Drug Law Enforcement Agency), the chairman at that time went with us, maybe he came and said what he went for was for a different thing but that was why we went and all I felt that let us look at the way they did it over there.

“Everybody has drug problem, most country has drug problem. We are having it here, it is not as pronounced here as in other places but there are ways they went about these things that those who are involved in drugs, those who are selling, those who are exporting had other ways of doing things that they had to leave it. So, when we talk about cultivation, we are saying in which it is a monitored one, in which NDLEA will have an office (near farms).”

A State government has the right to legalise cannabis cultivation by passing the law through the State house of assembly.

Y’all legalize ma seed of wisdom grounded into the hand of Blackman by king David ,the most intelligent king that ever rule the planet .And David named ganja “The seed of Widom “ .The evil governments of the world came and  destroyed the good work of Jah since creation . Adam and Eve ate the seed and were amazed by the discoveries of what Jah created in them and the gift of nature that is abundant and uncountable!.To know the function of sensimila is to know the revelations of Jah

Indeed, the fact that the climate in Nigeria is arid, and the temperature does not change all year round. This contributes to the successful cultivation of plants such as hemp. Although some varieties are unpretentious to weather conditions, they grow without problems in any climatic zone. For example, I found on https://www.dope-smoker.co.uk a  strain the most potent autoflower ever encountered to date. Auto Skywalker Haze grows into a compact and bushy plant. She has a perfect internodal distance, and the flowers really stack from the bottom to the top of the branch. More than that, it buds in around 12 weeks from seed to harvest.
