Omoyele Sowore, the presidential candidate of the African Action Congress (AAC), has said beyond consumption, cannabis can also be used for the creation of beneficial products.
He said it could be used for the production of medicines, textiles, and concrete.
Sowore, an advocate for the legalization of marijuana, disclosed this during a Twitter Space hosted by The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA).
The conversation themed ‘Cannabis: health or wealth’, was on whether cannabis should be legalised or not.
The presidential candidate indicated that he has never smoked cannabis in his life.
Sowore said that even if cannabis is legalized, he would not consume it because he is already “high” on justice.
“I do not consume cannabis. Never smoked cannabis in my life. Even if you legalise it, I’d probably not take it because I think I’m high on justice already. I don’t need to add any more substance to it,” Sowore said.
“I know all those countries that have legalised/decriminalised growing of cannabis will come and impose their products upon Nigeria whereas Nigeria has some of the best products already.”
