Latest information available to Adom News indicates that women in the country are smoking marijuana popularly known as wee at an alarming rate.
The Narcotics Control Board (NACOB) who came up with the report said women are the number one culprits when it comes to the substance abuse. The latest report followed disclosure that Western region has been identified as the leading region leading the consumption rate of the substance despite the awareness that the drug is illegal.
Brong-Ahafo Regional Head of the NACOB, Felix Sarfo in an interview with Adom News said recent swoops at various slums have led to the arrest of some women, a trend he described as very worrying.
While expressing worry at the situation, he said many heads of female schools have refused them access to these female students to benefit from education on this subject describing it as unfortunate.
He however accused some parents of exposing their young children in basic schools to the substance. Felix Sarfo added that there is the need to educate young women about what he describes as a deadly substance.
