Nigeriana/ The future of Cannabis in Nigeria



Nigeria is a major source of West African Grown Marijuana, as it’s widely produced across different states in the country.

Two Nigerian states; Ondo and Osun known for massive production of Cocoa and Rice went from being the highest producers of the crops in the country to the highest producers of marijuana

This high level of consumption and production rate makes it very clear that the country could increase their local economy by legalizing this drug.

In 2019, the conversation around legalizing marijuana and the boom of medicinal marijuana seems to be dominant; will Nigeria join other countries that have decriminalized and legalized it? I guess time will tell
