Why Marijuana Has Not Been Legalized In Nigeria – Burna Boy 

Burna Boy

October 13, (THEWILL) – Nigerian music star, Burna Boy, says hypocrisy is the reason why marijuana has not been legalized in Nigeria.

Burna Boy made this known in an interview with Home Grown Radio in Los Angeles, saying that he believes that hypocrisy is the reason it has not been legalized in Nigeria.

“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,” Burna Boy said.

The Grammy award-winning singer also disclosed that the misconception around the drug is another reason why it has not been legalized.

“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,” the singer said.

“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.”

Asked if people get arrested for possession of marijuana in Nigeria, the singer stated that it depends on who you are.

“If you can please the person that is stopping you at a time,” he added.
