Daniel Benson, also known as Buju/BNXN, a Nigerian artist, has demanded that marijuana (weed) be legalized in his country.
This was said on Monday during an Instagram live session by the singer formerly known as Buju.
He claims that legalizing marijuana will keep it out of the hands of “bad people.”
The only medication that makes him laugh, he said, is this one.
BNXN SAID: “I’M SORRY TO MY PARENTS. I LIED TO THEM I WAS NOT SMOKING, I TRIED ALL THE DRUGS BUT MARIJUANA WAS THE DRUG THAT MADE ME LAUGH. IT’S LEGAL IN SOME COUNTRIES, HENCE IT’S NOT A DRUG.
“YOU DON’T KNOW THAT IF YOU LEGALIZE MARIJUANA YOU ARE LITERALLY TAKING IT OFF THE HANDS OF DANGEROUS PEOPLE, PEOPLE DON’T HAVE TO GO TO EXTREME LENGTHS JUST TO SMOKE TO FEEL GOOD. GET YOUR PVC.”
Recall that Buju announced the name change to BNXN in February 18.
Recall that Burna Boy in October 2021, mentioned that not legalizing Marijuana in Nigeria is hypocritical as everyone smokes.
He noted that the misconception about marijuana was another reason it had not been legalized in Nigeria.
