"We have destroyed more than 300l from this region, we are not about to start crackdown on Cannabis sativa which is also rampant in this area," a police boss said in this video.

He also mentioned the existence of another drug called 'Kete' which is said to be the reason why men cannot sure children after using the drug.

It raises questions about how those behind mixing the illicit brew with ARVs get the medicinal drug considering its demand is so high in the country among people living with HIV.
