Well like in any country there are good laws and bad ones. Both of these are maintained at keeping the people free and would have the right to make use of their freedom but in a safer way indeed. Everyone needs guidance some point of time. Birchmeier

I have heard many a times that Kenya and some of the other African countries are lands of debauchery. This post on the drug laws in Kenya was really an eye opener and I understood that the Kenyan government is much serious while dealing with drugs. lake erie salmon fishing

Narcotic Drugs

The Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Control Act defines the narcotic drugs and psychotropic substances it applies to. Just look at section 2 of the Act on interpretation. Then look at Schedule 2 of the Act and you will see a list of the psychotropic substances

Narcotics laws in Kenya
by: Arjen (webmaster)

The main law on drugs in Kenya, as far as I could find out, is the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Control Act, first adopted in 1994. has a database containing all laws in Kenya, you can read the law online there. When I browsed it, it was unclear to me which drugs are exactly outlawed; next to cannabis (i.e. hash and weed) there was talk of "other narcotics and psychotropic substances" but does the law clearly define which ones they are?
