“We are not supporting the so-called legitimization of Cannabis. This committee is not fronting for that bill, is not proposing that bill because we know very clearly that Nigeria is a heavy user of Cannabis.

So if there is so much madness, killings and so on in the country now, if we legitimize Cannabis, the madness would quadruple,”

HE SAID.
