“Do you know how much revenue Ghana could derive from “wee”, go to Amsterdam and see for yourself, I know people who use to smoke from my infancy and their still alive kicking strong and healthy.
“We in a country were people drink alcohol and misbehave but still producers of alcoholic drinks have been given the license to operate and advertise on radio and TV, so why do we criminalize marijuana, this hypocrisy must stop” Reggie Rockstone stated.
The Godfather of Hiplife added that, “when I visit the ghettos, I see the kind of hard drugs people are patronizing and I marvel, so whether we like it or not people are already using it, I own a club so I know what am talking about, are people trying to tell me that Bob Marley was crazy because he smoked wee, no………. Reggie Rockstone stated.
VVIP has released a new single called “koliko” accompanied with an amazing video which is currently receiving massive airplay on radio and in the clubs across the country.
