No limit on Miraa use, High Court says

05 September 2014, 18:41 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - The High Court has dismissed a petition seeking to have Miraa use limited to certain hours of the day.

The National Campaign Against Drug and Alcohol Abuse NACADA had come up with specific hours for Miraa use, similar to the ones effected for alcohol.

They had insisted that Miraa be used between 5PM and 10PM on weekdays similar to that of alcohol.

But the Miraa Farmers and Traders Association straight away went to court to argue out their case and Friday, the ruling went in their favour as regards the case.

In the ruling, the NACADA ruling was ordered stopped until the case by the farmers is heard and determined.

The farmers insist that it will be illegal to condemn Miraa to that fate as it is considered a mild stimulant unlike the likes of alcohol.

They also claim that they were not consulted on the decision made by NACADA and want any further step made after they are consulted.

NACADA has always insisted that Miraa be classified as a drug, a step that has always been contested by Miraa farmers and users.

The UK government as well as other European nations have also recently banned Miraa from its territories further adding to the woes of the farmers who depend on the product for their livelihoods.
