The 420 celebration (April 20) is a day enthusiasts and smokers of marijuana set aside to celebrate the use of Igbo around the globe annually especially in the US where the 420 origin can be traced. I am almost certain a large chunk of our population will absolutely connect with the 420 celebrations, considering that millions of Nigerians are active smokers of the world-famous cannabis.
Though the use of marijuana aka Igbo is still not legal in Nigeria yet, there has been a growing call for the legalization of the substance, at least for medical purposes. Only early this year, the Governor of Ondo State Rotimi Akeredolu came out to say that his state government will be legalizing the use of marijuana for medical purposes and will be investing state resources in starting a huge marijuana farm as a means of tapping into the $145 billion marijuana market. Music producer Don Jazzy seems to tow the line of Governor Akeredolu, in a social media post last year, Don himself wondered why the country has not seen the need to legalized weed and get involved in the growing cannabis industry which has been projected to hit the $200 Billion mark by 2030.
