Some youth in Tema Manhean have resorted to chewing raw rabbit grass, in the bid to enlarge their manhood size. The Tema boys who are in a hurry to enjoy the forbidden fruit are said to be doing this in order to perform satisfactorily in bed.
According to reports by Ghana News Agency, the young boys wash and chew the root of the grass popularly known as “juice” which is normally given to rabbits to boost their sexuality and reproduction. The rabbit grass is common and easy to find n nearby bushes; so the boys who chew it have no difficulty or constraint in having abundant access to it.
Dr John Yabani, Tema Metropolitan Health Director, who spoke to the GNA on the development said that the usage of the grass among the youth has come to his knowledge and that he is working on educating them against the act. Dr Yabani reminded the youth that the size of their manhood would increase as they grow therefore the need to desist from drinking and chewing unapproved items in a bid to enlarge them. He added that the intake of such items could have serious health implications for them.
The Health Director also seized the opportunity to reveal that some of the Tema boys also smoke fruity scented cigarettes to outwit their parents and teachers. The said cigarette which comes in different flavours including strawberries, cherry, apple and mint is thinner and longer than the ordinary ones.
Dr. Yabani explained that the flavours were at the filter end of the cigarette so by the time they finished smoking the piece, the fruity scent overshadows the tobacco, leaving no traces of the true cigarette scent in their breath. He however cautioned the youth against smoking of cigarette irrespective of its flavour as the act exposes them to the risk of contracting respiratory and other health problems.
The Metropolitan Health Director also urged parents and teachers to be vigilant in monitoring their children as they guide them into responsible adulthood.
