The West Africa Drug Policy Network, the Crime Check Foundation, an NGO, and other Stakeholders are pushing for the decriminalisation of certain drugs such as cannabis.

This will allow the country to explore the health, human rights, economic and environmental benefits of these drugs.

To this end, a lecture has been scheduled for Thursday July 18 to throw more light on the need to decriminalise some narcotic drugs.

The lecture comes at a time when Ghana is reviewing its drug law with the aim of placing the health and wellbeing of people at the centre of its drug Policies.

Speaking in an interview with GBC’s Radio Ghana, the African Consultant for the International Drug Policy Consortium, Maria-Goretti Ane-Loglo, said the lecture is one form of appealing to government through the Parliamentary Select Committee to be liberal in reviewing the Narcotics Commission Bill.
