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.

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

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