Human rights activist Boniface Mwangi is calling upon the Kenyan government to legalize weed in the country.

According to him he feels the legalization would help drive the country's economy to a better state as well as keep a lot of young people out of jail because officers are notoriously known to plant weed on someone whenever they want to make or justify an arrest.

Taking to his social media page he wrote, "legalize Marijuana. It's the one thing that police use a lot to extort the youth. You argue with a cop, and they plant bhang on you!"

He went on to point out that Kenyan artists were also seemingly fighting for the course and that's why they didn't tr and hide their consumption of the illegal substance.

"The most popular Kenyan artistes are pushing the #Legalizelt campaign by smoking openly. No one can arrest them." Boniface said.

He also argued that it wasn't fair that a section of people could benefit from its sale and not the whole country.

"In Kenya, it's only drug barons, their dealers, and the police that benefit from the sale of Marijuana.

Legalise Marijuana, tax it, and Kenya will make billions in profit from selling medicinal marijuana

The global cannabis market size was estimated to be valued at USD 27.7 billion in 2022 and is projected to reach USD 82.3 billion. How much is $27.7 billion in Kenya shillings? Why can't Kenya benefit from selling good marijuana to the world? Miraa farmers can make more money selling it!" Argued the photographer.

He finished off off by stating, "they can export the product to the US, Canada, and Europe. Miraa market is mostly the Middle East, if you're caught with Miraa in the US or Europe, you go to jail. #legalize it."
