Watch: Student arrested after a garden of bhang is found on top of his house

28 April 2016, 11:14

Nairobi - Police in Nairobi are holding a form three student who was found cultivating bhang on the roof of their house.

The boy is said to have been growing the illegal crop for a couple of years without the knowledge of his parents.

According to K24, police uprooted over 1,000 stalks of the crop from a container on the roof of their house in Makongeni area.

Area residents however condemned the raid which they said is a mere showoff, saying they have failed to rein in the hardcore peddlers who are well known to them.

“Police know every hardcore bhang peddler in this place who sells seeds to these innocent children. They visit them in their houses to collect handouts,” said an angry resident.

Daily nation reports that bhang peddling and abuse has become rampant in schools, with majority of students even smoking it in public.

Popular culture, peer pressure, too much freedom and lack of close parental monitoring have been cited as the major factors for drug abuse among students.
