While in an interview with Home Grown Radio in Los Angeles, Burna Boy said he believes hypocrisy is the reason it has not been legalised in Nigeria because everyone smokes weed.

“It’s not a zero-tolerance. It’s like everybody does it, but no one wants to be the one that is seen with it. Just kind of hypocritical out there. Everybody smokes weed,” Burna Boy said.

The “Ye” singer also explained that the misconception around the drug is another major reason why it is yet to be legalised.

“It’s like some dumb sh*t, bro. You know those old s**t when they talk about it frying your brains. They try to make it seem like if you smoke it, you will go mad,” the singer said.

“Right now, everybody is relaxed, everybody does it, and everybody knows that. It’s just a topic no one wants to talk about. No one wants to talk about it; everybody is cool. Nobody wants to make it a thing.”

Weed is presently illegal in Nigeria however, it is legal in some countries of the world. Countries, where weed or marijuana is legal, include Costa Rica, Colombia, Canada, South Africa, and Jamaica. It is also legal in the Netherlands, The Czech Republic, Belize, Spain and Uruguay.
