Popular Nigerian music star, Augustine Miles Kelechi, popularly known as Tekno, has disclosed what his experience has been so far after deciding to start abstaining from marijuana.
In a post on his InstaStory on Wednesday, the singer said he found it a little hard to sleep the first night after he quit smoking.
Tekno said it was difficult for him to sleep at first after quitting the substance, stressing that he has, however, stayed 24 hours without the drug.
He said, ‘My first 24 hours of not smoking cannabis, marijuana, weed or whatever you decide to call it. It was a little hard to sleep the first night but this is 24 hours. I am about to go another 24 hours; I am trying to go 30 days not smoking weed.
‘At the end of these 30 days, I will decide if I want to keep smoking or if I don’t want to smoke anymore but I will come back here to keep you guys updated every day.’
Meanwhile, the House of Representatives has revealed that it will not support any bill that seeks to legalise marijuana in Nigeria no matter the pressure.
This was made known by the Chairman of the House Committee on Narcotics, Francis Agbo, when the Chairman of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA), Buba Marwa appeared before the committee for budget defence.
Agbo stated the committee is considering an amendment to the NDLEA bill to ensure adequate funding for the agency.
He assured that the 9th Assembly will not support any bill to legalise marijuana in Nigeria, and called for tougher sanctions against drug peddlers.
Marwa solicited more funding for his agency to address drug traffickers. Noting that traffickers are using boats to bring in drugs.
