"Many countries are surviving with weed that we call Igbo. What you don't understand is that weed is not just for smoking, it has many medicinal purposes. although some people will misuse it but think about the medicinal sides. It has a lot of things it can do. I have never smoked indian hemp in my life but I can tell you that this is a platform to help the youths because they will get jobs," Daddy Showkey said.

"Cannabis oil is one of the best in the world, it is healthy on the body. It is not good for smoking but apart from that, what cannabis does in the body is more than smoking. Cannabis (Igbo) is not about smoking but it has many medicinal values that will profit our people. Our government should research about it," he insisted.
