Few days ago, The Rastafarian Association of Kenya came out pleading with the Government to legalise the famed Marijuana drug, which they claimed would be vital in manifestation of their faith. This scene has indeed raised debate countrywide, with emergence of critics and proponents almost in the same measure.
Moreover, some notable public figures even came out joining hands with the Rastafarian Association.
Ledama Ole Kina
According to the Senator, he has always viewed the drug from the dimension of profitability. In an Interview with Kiss FM few days ago, Ole Kina revealed that commercialisation of the drug in Kenya can solely wipe away the burdening debts the country has.
"Marijuana is not all about smoking, fibre from it can make clothing and it is also of medicinal importance." The Senator argued.
King Kalala And Notiflow
Radio host King Kalala and rapper Notiflow recently shared a similar opinion with regards to legalisation of Bhang. On a post shared by Nairobi Gossip Blog, the two celebrities openly stated it was hight time Kenya legalised the underrated drug.
The award winning Kenyan rapper is also among the major proponents of Bhang legalisation. Even his songs mention a lot about the prohibited drug, and one day in an interview, Octopizzo explained his main reason behind that.
"Nitaimba about marijuana till they legalise it. He stated."
The Government has however not issued any response with regards to these plea. To date, South Africa, Zambia, Lesotho and Malawi are the only African countries that have legalised Bhang.
