Some Rastafarians living in Ghana have reportedly decided to embark on a demonstration against the government for criminalising marijuana in the country.
In a post sighted by Adomonline.com on Facebook, the date for the event is Wednesday, May 8, 2019 at the Freedom and Justice Park at the Kwame Nkrumah Circle, Accra.
Urging Ghanaians to throw their support behind them, they asked those “who’ve been harassed by the police for a roll of herb” to join the parade.
Beneficiaries of the herb, investors, dealers, farmers among others are not excluded from the list of those expected to turn up at the event.
The Rastafarians noted that they wouldn’t exercise their franchise at the 2020 December elections if nobody listens to them. This is a “march for freedom,” they said.
“If you’ve ever been harassed by the police for a roll of herb, this march is for you, to all beneficiaries of the herb, investors, dealers, farmers etc.
“Let’s meet at the Freedom and Justice Park at the Kwame Nkrumah Circle on Wednesday 8th May, 8:am Sharp!!!!!!!!!
