Grammy Award-winning singer Burna Boy has said hypocrisy is the reason why marijuana has not been legalised in Nigeria.
The 30-year-old made this known during an interview shared on Instagram post on Wednesday.
According to him, the misconception around weed is one of the reasons it is yet to be legalised in Nigeria. The singer also added that marijuana is a topic no non wants to talk about but many people smoke it.
When asked about legalising weed in Nigeria, the music star 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 legalisation of weed.”
