“In the 21st century when God has blessed us this way, we are over-relying on gold and cocoa. Marijuana is a silence gold hiding that we need to legalise. What are we waiting for?
“I will go there in my best attire and talk about this. If I have the opportunity I will talk about other things. Let’s legalize it for industrial use. Is one of the best oil that doesn’t deplete the ozone layer.”
