The General Overseer of the Prophetic Hill Chapel, Nigel Gaise has confessed ungodly things he used to do in his early ages until he was called to win souls for Christ.
“At the age of ten or eleven I was smoking marijuana at Odorna and Circle”, the controversial preacher revealed to host, Paul Adom-Otchere on Metro TV’s Good Evening Ghana show monitored by MyNewsGh.com
According to the preacher, between his teen ages, he lost parental care and took his destiny into his own hands becoming a street child as a result until a good a samaritan took him to a church and advised him against smoking of marijuana among others criminal activities.
“I had no father, poor parental care and so we were staying in a kiosk so one man who is older than me gave me ‘wee’ to smoke”, Prophet Nigel Gaise stated on the show.
Meanwhile, Ghana has legalized the use of cannabis for health and industrial purposes as it joins other African countries hoping to derive economic and health benefits from the substance.
The law now makes the country’s Narcotics Control Board (NACOB) a commission with enhanced powers to oversee the industrial use of some narcotic substances.
The commission, however, will have the mandate to control and eliminate the trafficking of prohibited narcotic drugs to ensure public safety.
Health experts have always campaigned for addicts of narcotic drugs to be properly rehabilitated and not treated as criminals.
The new law makes provision for that as well, now classifying drug abuse a public health issue.
