Ghanaian politician, actor and farmer John Dumelo has disclosed that he will soon add the cultivation of cannabis (weed/marijuana) to his portfolio.

He made this decision after the Parliament of Ghana passed the Narcotics Control Commission Amendment Bill 2023 early this week.

The bill, according to the parliament, will present the Minister for the Interior, Ambrose Dery, with the authority to issue licenses for the cultivation of cannabis in Ghana for industrial and medicinal purposes.
