When sowore said we should legalize marijuana they all said he was bluffing, now ondo state govt is taking steps towards cultivating marijuana . Nigeria has a way of silencing the bright ones amongst us & that explains why we are where we still are.
I’m sorry but if Nigeria legalizes marijuana I’ll move to ondo state in a heart beat. Hope there are beaches in akure & the weather is friendly?.
The Ondo State government and the NDLEA are using the visit to access Thailand materials and best practises with the possibility of replicating them in Nigeria. At the briefing, the Secretary-General of Thai Food and Drug Administration Dr. Tares Krassanairawiwong stated
