Weed has remained illegal herb in Kenya despite many calling for it’s legalization.

It’s belied that 8 out of 10 Kenyans you meet are smoking weed or have already smoked weed.

The church has been the biggest opposer’s of the push to legalize the already in use herb.

A recent survey indicates that most women have been using cannabis to relieve menstrual cramps.

Sixty percent of Kenyans had already smoked or drunk cannabis, mostly 36 percent use it to treat pain, depression and anxiety.

Those who hadn’t used the drug were not strongly against it despite foreign institutions like the Church being against it.

The findings were also presented at the annual conference for the American College of Gynecology last week.
