KOT Sparks Conversation on the Legalization of Marijuana
Kenyans on twitter sparked a conversation on whether marijuana should be legalized. This comes after reports surfaced, that the substance was in plenty, and in high use at Jah Cure’s concert over the weekend. Opposing sides each shared their two cents on this conversation, through #WhyLegalizeIt.
After my judicial attachment experience, I strongly oppose the legalization of marijuana. Offences such as malicious damage to property, arson and others have been committed under the influence. #WhyLegalizeIt

Marijuana is not addictive.. You can wake up today and decide not to take it anymore and lead your life normally without going to rehabilitation. Why call it a Drug. I cannot put up with people who has such a mentality #WhyLegalizeIt
