This is also a very disturbing issue that youths are now heavily abusing drugs, especially University students.

Many have made it the new normal to drink and abuse drugs from Monday to Monday.

Studies done in Kenya show that the most commonly abused drugs are  nicotine, alcohol, and cannabis

Alcohol is the most abused drug in Kenya, according to a survey done by the National Authority for the Campaign Against Alcohol and Drug Abuse (NACADA).

Over the past few months, NACADA took matters into their own hands to arrest people who have been selling and smoking shisha

NACADA conducted a raid in the Nairobi clubs at midnight where they arrested several people who were caught abusing illegal substances'.
