According to her, Cannabis is a miracle drug allowed for medical purposes by the United Nations, but not for recreational purposes.

According to her, aside cannabis, recreational users of other addictive drugs by UN recommendation, should not be criminalised, but rehabilitated, adding, “The Drugs and Crime office of the UN sees addictive drugs users as people who are sick, in need of treatment, care and rehabilitation.”
