Ghanaian cannabis activists are preparing to challenge a ruling by the Supreme Court of Ghana which invalidated a section of the country’s Narcotic Control Commission Act 2020 (Act 1019) that would have permitted the licensing of hemp production in the country.

The Hempire Association of Ghana (HAG) has said it will challenge the court’s 4-3 decision to declare Section 43 of the act unconstitutional on the grounds that it violates Article 106 of the 1992 Ghanaian Constitution, which details the processes and procedures a bill may go through before being passed into law. In effect this means the law was overturned on a technicality as the procedure of presenting a bill to parliament was not properly followed.
