Parliament has approved the Narcotics Control Commission Regulations 2023, an L.I. that seeks to legalize the cultivation and management of cannabis of 0.3 tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) content.

Contributing to the passage of the L.I., the Interior Minister, Ambrose Dery, made it clear that this is not a regulation for the cultivation of weed and the particular type of cannabis the L.I. proscribe has not yet been cultivated in Ghana.

He explained that, the Ministry is now preparing to import such type into the country.

On the other hand, the Minority Chief whip and MP for Adaklu, Kwame Agbodza Governs, opposed the legalization of growing of cannabis in Ghana since they believe it would worsen the cases of mental health challenges in the country among the youth.
