On the other hand, Professor Wajackoyah explains why he is so passionate about marijuana legalization Professor George Wajackoyah claims he has never smoked marijuana or drank alcohol before, but if elected President on August 9, 2022, he will participate in the former

During an interview with NTV's Salim Swaleh, Professor Wajackoyah stated why he is so adamant on marijuana legalization, despite the fact that it is frowned upon by some in society.

"What is it about marijuana that our neighbors Uganda and Rwanda, as well as South Africa and Morocco, have observed but we have not?" Wajackoyah enquired.

The use and growing of marijuana for therapeutic or recreational purposes has been allowed in the nations listed above. Morocco, for example, is still the world's leading cannabis resin producer (hashish).

Uganda and Rwanda, which legalized marijuana for medicinal purposes in 2020 and 2021, have reaped the benefits of exporting the commodity.

Uganda, for example, earned $2 million from a single shipment of 400kg of medicinal marijuana to Germany last year.

During the interview, Wajackoyah mentioned this, saying that Kenya should follow in the footsteps of her neighbors.

"We have accrued debts from China; if elected President, I would return SGR to the Chinese and settle their loan with harvested marijuana," Wajackoyah added. Another person working in the marijuana green house harvesting the medicinal marijuana in Uganda
