Popular Nigerian music star, Burna Boy has said that hypocrisy is why marijuana is yet to be legalized in Nigeria.
Marijuana (called weed) is still illegal in Nigeria, although this hasn’t stopped its consumption by some people in the country especially in the entertainment industry.
Burna Boy during a conversation with Home Grown Radio in Los Angeles, explained that everyone smokes weed in Nigeria but does not want to be seen with it.
The Grammy award-winning singer stated that misconception around weed is another reason it has not been legalized in Nigeria.
According to him, legalizing Marijuana is just a topic no one wants to talk about, yet many smoke it.
When asked about legalizing weed in Nigeria, Burna said: “It’s not a zero- tolerance. It’s like everybody does it, but no one wants to be the one that is seen talking about it. It’s just kind of hypocritical out there.
“They try to make it seem like if you smoke weed you’ll just go mad in Nigeria. Everybody smokes it, 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 to advocate for legalization of weed,” he added.
Burna Boy noted that he loves visiting Los Angeles because weed is free, and one can get the best in the city.
