"Everyone Smokes, Not Legalising Weed In Nigeria Is Hypocritical" – Burna Boy
Burna Boy has said that hypocrisy is why marijuana is yet to be legalised in Nigeria.
Grammy award winner, Burna Boy has given his take on why marijuana remains illegal in Nigeria, one which he based on hypocrisy.
According to the self-acclaimed African Giant in an interview with Home Grown Radio in Los Angeles, ‘everybody’ in Nigeria consumes the cannabis plant but deny the use due to the high hypocrisy in the country.
“It’s not a zero-tolerance. It’s like everybody does it, but no one wants to be the one that is seen with it. “It’s just kind of hypocritical out there. Everybody smokes weed.”
“It’s like some dumb shit bro. You know those old shit when they talk about it frying your brains.
"They try to make it seem like if you smoke it, you will go mad. Right now, everybody is relaxed, everybody does it, and everybody knows that.
"It’s just a topic no one wants to talk about. No one wants to talk about it; everybody is cool. Nobody wants to make it a thing,” Burna Boy affirmed.
Burna Boy noted that he likes visiting Los Angeles because weed is free in the state and that the best ones are found in the city.
Marijuana (also known as weed) is still illegal in Nigeria, although it hasn’t stopped its use by some people in the country.
