Most countries in the world have continued to legalize the use of cannabis both for recreation and for medicinal purposes.

The court ruled that the South Africans cultivating and using cannabis in private should be ‘left in peace’ with the law that had criminalized the same being declared unconstitutional.

In the seven days of being legalized, the herb is said to have made deals worth 8 billion US dollars for companies.
In Kenya, a member of parliament from Kibera, Ken Okoth, is in the process of petitioning the government to legalize the use of cannabis for medicinal purposes. Although many Kenyans have differed with him, some think it will be a great move for the government to widen its revenue collection net as well as creating employment for the youth.
