Kibera rapper Octopizzo wants weed to be like cigarettes. Easily accessible, you can smoke it anywhere and most of all, cops won’t be all over you once you do it.
In short, the rapper wants the drug legalized.
Speaking in an interview with Mzazi Willy M Tuva, Pizzo said that everything has side effects even Ugali therefore, weed should be just legalized.
Coming from Kibera, Octopizzo confessed that he sold Bhang while still leaving in the slum to make a living.
“Do you think our leaders are doing the right job?” Asked Tuva.
“Wana try. Leader wetu pale mtaani naweza sema amejaribu. Amekua akisupport education, arts na pia kuna kitu ali table pale parliament ya ku legalize ngwai (bhang). Na hio niimportant sana,”said Octopizzo.
To which Tuva posed, “Why do you think ngwai should be legalized?”
“Why not,” he went on.
Tuva: “Kwa sababu ina madhara.”
“Madhara gani?” Si pombe ina madhara? Sigara iko na madhara mbaya kuliko bhangi…Medicinal – unaweza kunywa ata kwa chai. Si lazima uvute. Mtu akisema ku legalize marijuana si ati ni kwamba watu wavute tu. Waeza weka kwa chai na haina madhara. We ukinywa chai umewahi sikia ina madhara? Ushawahi sikia kitu inaitwa ganja tea?”
“Ni madhara ambayo yanakuja baadae,” Tuva pressed further.
“At saa hii ugali ikiwekwa kwa roller uivute itakua na madhara because ni smoke. Ata ukichoma takataka…” he added.
