Seun Kuti Wants Marijuana Legalized

Like father like son?

As some artistes in the United States campaign for the legalization of marijuana, son of Afro-beat king, Late Fela Anikulapo Kuti, Seun, has also condemned the ban of marijuana and cigarette, claiming that the law’s position on the two products was illogical.

Seun enthused that the legally opposed marijuana was medicinal and good for human consumption while the favoured cigarette has lethal consequences. Seun said the lethal cigarette was favoured simply because it was to the white man’s profit, stressing that marijuana would make black countries richer than the white if legalized.

He damned black politicians for taking the white’s advice against its own natural produce of ‘weed’ which he said was good after all and accepting the white’s product which truncates lives.

“Marijuana is medical, and I feel Cigarette is selling legally because it is white man’s business. It is killing millions of people every day. ‘Igbo’ is not killing anybody… Marijuana is not only for smoking. It’s used for a lot of things; you can make clothes, you can drink tea, it is good, it is medicinal, it helps your appetite, they give it to cancer patients.. a lot of benefits”, Seun said.


  1. I agree with the legalization of marijuana what is the difference between smoking weed with your children or getting drunk with them you won’t end up in a fight and in jail if your just high on weed and that is a fact

  2. This is one of the best things an African have ever said,
    the question is why did God create the marijuana plant?
    Why is it legal in Holland? Because they know its good
    although i have never smoked, drunk or eaten some
    before i keep wondering why this white men will go to
    great length to study and grow this plant under light for
    human consumption while in Africa it grows naturally
    Holland is one of the most beautiful country’s in Europe
    The Government of Holland is really making money from
    marijuana. People travel and come here to spend their
    Pounds, Dollars and Euro’s…..Blackman have to wake up
    and think. Its not every thing that the White man says is
    right, Blacks were using this plant before the white men came
    to Africa

  3. Wel am actually surprise dat (m J) is nt legalized in Nigeria, many countries lyk Europe. Nd America, nd even some part in Asia county hav legalize it, becoz They no d importance of Mj, it doz nt hav any implication on health, rather advantageous, unlyk cigerat which contain large percentage of nicotin, dangerous 2 human health, is actually legerlise, in Nigeria, naija we 2much 4 goin backward. I tink it should be legerlise’ so dat we al be law abiding citizen,
