Marijuana, better known as Igbo or weed is an illicit drug frowned upon by the Nigerian government. Contrarily, it is what celebrities allegedly survive on; while some claims it helps them feel good and inspires them, others attribute the success of their live performances to it.
Despite the high circulation of Marijuana, the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) continues to hunt down citizens growing, processing, selling, and trafficking it.
