Blessing Afia Atta, the 17 year old girl, JHS 3 school dropout, in an interview with DJ Nyaami, on SVTV Africa, has revealed, she couldn’t write her Basic Education Certificate Examinations because of weed influence.
According to the teenager, friends influenced her into it.
“My friends introduced me to weed smoking and gradually l became so attached to it.
They told me when l smoke it, I will be able to memorize whatever l have learnt.
On many occassions, they will bring weed to class without the knowledge of school authorities” She narrated.
Nevertheless, one day, her male friend saw her at a ghetto smoking, informing her grandmother and uncle.
“My uncle after hearing this, locked me home for some days; an action he believed was going to stop me from smoking.”
She disclosed that, her parents have divorced, but as couple, she is their first and only child.
Detailing more on weed, she said;
“I broke my virginity after discovering weed, being so into my boyfriend to the point that, on many occasions, l had to even sleep at his end till the next morning”.
She claimed her mother, had sat her down several times, advicing her on the risks involved in smoking weed, but she wouldn’t stop.
Blessing, as younger as she may be, is also into other drugs like cocaine, tyre among others.
