Chris Brown is a wanted man in Ghana after pictures of him smoking something on stage hit the web.
He smoked the object during a concert in the country and at the time, he is being investigated by the police of Ghana to figure out if he was indeed smoking weed.
Brown allegedly smoked weed during his staged performance in Ghana on 5th March 2013. Police filed a formal compliant by the CEO of POS Foundation, Mr. Jonathan Osei-Wusu on 6th March 2013 at the Ministries Police station for smoking Indian hemp publicly in Ghana.
According to Section 5 of narcotic drugs [Control Enforcement and Sanctions] Act, 1990 PNDCL 236 of Ghana, “a person shall not, without lawful authority or excuse, smoke, sniff, consume, inject into the body or otherwise administer a narcotic drug on the body of that person.”
Questions like; who provided him with the weed and why the attempt by the organizers to cover his actions are being asked by the public.
Minister of State and Member of Parliament for Wa Central Rashid Pelpuo condemned the act saying, “This is appalling. It is unacceptable. In Ghana we have laws and one of the laws is to ban drugs be it marijuana, ganja, weed or whatever it is being called. It is also internationally recognized that it is part of the group of drugs that should not be taken openly by people.
