Malawi’s leading reggae outfit Black Missionaries aka Ma Blacks have joined the debate of whether Malawi should legalize the use and farming of Indian Hemp [Chamba].

The band through its front man Ajiru Fumulani threw its weight behind the legalization of the plant over the weekend when the Chileka based band held musical performances in the northern region.

While backing the Chamba trade, Fumulani said weed as the plant is popularly known is helpful in many ways including disease cure.

“Weed is an important plant. It has more than 10 uses too numerous to mention. But the important one is that is can be used to cure diseases such as asthma and cancer” Fumulani is quoted as saying in the local press.

Added Fumulani: “So those who argued for it in parliament know these uses and that it would boost the economy of our country. Some people know this but they choose not to face reality”.

According to the lead vocalist, smoking Chamba also gives intelligence hence the need to support the legalization of the plant.

“They [people against Chamba legalization] don’t know that smoking weed gives intelligence. We are behind those who are advocating for the legalization of the plant” said Fumulani.

A call to legalize Chamba was made by Ntchisi North Parliamentarian Boniface Kadzamira during Parliamentary deliberations last month.

This is after the former Deputy Minister of Agriculture Joe Mandiwa made a similar call in parliament 2000 but failed to materialize as it attracted little attention and backing.
