John Dumelo wants marijuana legalized just like cigarettes


In the show, Dining with cooks and braggarts, John Dumelo stated that if substances like alcohol and cigarettes are not illegal, marijuana also ought not to be illegal.

He further stated that the drug should be legalized so that government can generate revenue from taxing it.

He cited countries such as the Netherlands and States in the USA e.g Colorado and California, who have the drug legalized. According to him, those places have proven that marijuana usage doesn’t increase the rate of crime.
