RECREATIONAL MARIJUANA IN SIERRA LEONE

Cannabis is widely used and pretty much tolerated amongst the locals of Sierra Leone. Most of the cannabis used is even grown in the country itself even though any cannabis related activity is considered illegal in Sierra Leone and can be punished.
Some Rastafarian movements have been campaigning for legalization in the last few years, but thus far nothing has officially changed and cannabis remains illegal in Sierra Leone.
