Chris Brown in Ghana: 'Kiss Kiss' Ghana Goodbye

"Bad boy" singer Chris Brown supposedly made Ghanaians mad last week when he lit up a joint on stage at a concert for the launch of a Technology City Project called Hope City. Let's be clear from the start that we are NOT Chris Brown fans. Dude is an idiot. However, executive director of Perfector of SentimentsJonathan Osei-Owusu's petition for prosecution is a little lame — we searched but couldn't find an online copy of it. Osei-Owusu went on to say that Brown "is on video to have encouraged the audience to take up arms against people who stand in their way to smoking weed." We watched the video (above) and Chris definitely wasn't on the militant tip.

Webehigh.org seems to think that Ghana, Accra in particular, is a fine spot to light up. Based on their scale of 1-5 (1 = very legal, 5 = virtually legal) Accra ranks 3.5 - virtually very legal in clubs, bars, and beaches. Cops focus more on "traffic management and not security." We'd say the only mistake made in this story was letting Chris Brown in Ghana. Garbage in, garbage out.
