The Ondo State Government has cleared the air on its plans to legalize Marijuana in the state.
The governor of Ondo who spoke through the Commissioner for Information, Yemi Olowolabi, said the state government was in the process of making it legal.
Akeredolu also warned that cannabis cultivation is yet to be legalised as opposed to reports making the rounds.
He said the collaboration with the NDLEA was an indication of Federal Government’s consent to the cultivation of the crop in the state.
“We are still at the elementary stage of this matter. Before we legalise cannabis growing in this state, it has to pass through certain procedures and we have begun the procedures.
“The assistance we seek from the Federal Government is the collaboration we already have with the NDLEA, which is an agency of the government.
“Since we are dealing with the NDLEA, we are dealing with the Federal Government.”
