The National Authority Control of Drugs and Substance Abuse NACADA has finally broken their silence following numerous calls from presidential candidate Hon George Wajackoyah to legalize the growing and sale of bhang if he becomes president after August 9. According to Wajackoyah's manifesto which he delivered yesterday at KICC, he will alongside other numerous things legalize marijuana in an attempt to make Kenya self reliant economically.
However, according to a statement by NACADA, bhang is a controlled substance whose commercial trade remains prohibited.
Wajackoyah however said that he will suspend the constitution in his first six months of rule so that Kenyans decide what they want among them the growing of marijuana.
Wajackoyah and his followers argue that bhang farming is extremely lucrative and that it will help Kenya offset it's 9 trillion debt burden within one year and make Kenya a first world.
NACADA and a section of religious leaders however have differed saying it's legalization will have far reaching consequences on destroying the moral fabrics of Kenyan youths.
