Renowned actor turned farmer, John Dumelo, is expanding his agricultural ventures by including cannabis cultivation in his portfolio.
John Dumelo, a well-known actor who has transitioned to farming, is increasing his portfolio of agricultural endeavors by adding cannabis production.
His choice was made in light of the Narcotics Control Commission (NACOC) Bill, 2023’s recent passage by the legislature on July 12.
This new legislation gives the Interior Ministry the jurisdiction to award licenses for the cultivation of cannabis for industrial or therapeutic uses, provided that it has a THC content of no more than 0.3% on dry weight.
Mr. Dumelo enthusiastically embraced this significant milestone in Ghana’s history, expressing his excitement for the progress. As he recognizes cannabis’ potential value in a variety of industries, he views it as an opportunity to start growing it.
By embracing the changing legal landscape and seeking to engage in responsible and regulated cannabis cultivation, John Dumelo aims to contribute to the growth of Ghana’s agricultural industry while exploring the potential benefits of this versatile crop.
