The county commissioner of Bomet county, Ahmed Omar, has cried out to the public to be aware of the rampant spread of marijuana in the county.
Ahmed Omar said that Marijuana has become like cabbage, vegetables often consumed together with Ugali or Rice. He claimed that most people in Bomet county are either the sellers or the consumers of the substance.
He claimed that action has been initiated by the relevant authority, the Kenya Police Service in conjunction with the office of the Director of Criminal Investigation (DCI). Drug trafficking is fought by the above authorities together with (NACADA).
Moreover, he said that illicit brewers will not be left behind. Most people, especially old men who are no longer active in service are the most affected population. Illicit brews are dangerous to consume. When they stay for a long time, it turns from Ethanol to Methanol which affects eyesight.
