Should marijuana be legalised?

Do you think marijuana should be legalised in Nigeria? BattaBox asks Nigerians and hears some serious, funny, and crazy answers!

The legalisation of marijuana or cannabis has been on the increase across the world in recent years. There are numerous reasons for this change in law and culture – as the medicinal benefits of marijuana for various illnesses and diseases are realised, but also the difficulty in policing the problem, especially with the failure of the war on drugs.

In Nigeria, however, it appears opinions are very mixed as to whether marijuana should be legalised or banned.

“It should not be legalised o!” says one young Nigerian man. “It has caused many distractions and accidents.”

“I don’t think marijuana should be legalised, as it will have a bad impact on Nigeria,” says another young woman.

However, there is a difference between medical marijuana and the green leaf marijuana that is banned in most countries.

“Cigarettes take the strength and shorten your life, but marijuana is just from grass and green leaf – it gives you energy and helps you to reason.”
