Marijuana is just a topic no one wants to talk, says Burna Boy


Popular Nigerian music star, Burna Boy has said that pretense is why marijuana (weed) is yet to be approved in Nigeria.

Burna Boy during a dialogue with Home Grown Radio in Los Angeles, said everyone smokes weed in Nigeria but does not want to be seen with it.

The Grammy award-winning singer also said that misunderstanding around weed is another reason it has not been legalised in Nigeria.

According to Burna Boy, 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.
