Ghanaians do not seem to agree for marijuana to be legalised in the country yet.

This was revealed in a poll run by Pulse.com.gh on Twitter.

55 percent of the voters voted against the legalisation of weed, while 36 percent voted for the substance to be legalised and 9 percent of the respondents said the time was not ripe for legalisation yet.

This follows the legalisation of cannabis in businesses in Denver. The new ordinance was part of several marijuana measures put to voters in nine US states during last week's general election.

Denver officials said Tuesday that Initiative 300 had garnered enough votes to pass after nearly all the ballots had been counted.

The measure allows private businesses in Colorado's capital to seek permits to create areas where customers can bring their own cannabis and consume it.

However, applicants would first need to receive backing from a local business group or neighbourhood.

Currently in Africa, no country has legalised the use of marijuana in any form. Most African countries have been very laid back in legalising weed even though a portion of the their population secretly consume it mainly because of morality stance.
