Kenyan woman narrates how she beat up her hubby after smoking bhang

In recent times, news about husband battery have been on the rise especially in this side of Sub Sahara.

As much as many used to link wife battery to drugs and alcohol abuse, the very same factors can be linked to women who assault their lovers.

Reason why I have arrived to this is after a lady confessed to battering her husband after smoking marijuana, which she claims helped her gather courage.

Sheila said that she was fed up by her husband’s extra marital affairs which almost plunged her into depression, and for that she decided to take matters into her own hands.

She claims that one day she decided to smoke marijuana and waited for her hubby’s arrival before pouncing on him, and beating him up with a belt.

However, the beating never made their union better and the two fell out eventually. She also ditched the smoking habits for the sake of her kids.

Read her narration below.

Mimi nilivuta bangi kwa miaka mitatu kwa sababu ya stress ya mwanaume. Alinipea stress kwani watoto walikuwa wananisumbua na mwanaume alikuwa ana hanya hanya kwa wanawake wote.

Nilikuwa navuta ndio nimtwange kweli. Kuna siku nilifika kama nimechangamka kabisa na hiyo bangi na nilitoa mshipi na nikamzaba viboko kweli kweli.

Nilikuja nikawacha bangi kwani niligundua naumiza watoto wangu kwa ajili ilikuwa inanipeleka vibaya na nikaona najiumiza tu.

Mwanaume tuliwachana kitambo hata sina haja na yeye.

Nairobi man charged for smoking bhang ‘to treat high blood pressure’

A businessman was on Friday charged with possession of bhang worth Sh225 in the CBD that he claimed to be his medicine for hypertension.

Daniel Obogi denied the charge and accused two officers from the Central police of demanding Sh6,000 to release his vehicle.

The suspect was arrested on Thursday after he was allegedly found smoking weed in his friend’s car along Muindi Mbingu Street near Jevanjee Gardens.

But he told senior principal magistrate Kennedy Cheruiyot that he only had one roll which he usually smokes to “treat hypertension”.

He said his “blood pressure had risen” because his three-month-old baby was sick and he had not gotten the money he was expecting for treatment.

Obogi was also accused of incitement to violence and resisting arrest.

He was accused of willful prevention of lawful apprehension by the station’s boss Jane Kabuchwa and constable Dickson Gitonga on Thursday.

However,Obogi accused Kabuchwa and Gitonga of insisting on using their breakdown to tow his car to the station despite him having offered to drive them to the station or allow his friend to drive.

He said the cops later demanded Sh6,000 for the towing.

Cheruiyot sought an explanation on why the car was still being detained “if it was not also smoking the bhang”, prompting state prosecution counsel to call Gitonga to court.

Gitonga said he had offered to drive Obogi to the station but he refused and became violent.

The magistrate freed Obogi on an Sh100,000 bail with an alternative bond of Sh 500,000.

The case will be mentioned on January 18 before a hearing begins the following day.

Police In Naivasha Seize Bhang Worth Millions From Akorino Leader’s Farm

Police in Naivasha have seized bhang worth millions of shillings from the farm of a cleric following a major crackdown on drug peddlers in the area.

The religious leader who has since gone into hiding is believed to be the mastermind behind selling and distributing bhang in the lake side town.

This came as the provincial administration conducted a raid into the clergy’s home where they found hundreds of rolls of the narcotic near Banda estate in the area.

The raid that was led by Naivasha assistant county commissioner Richard Aguoka and involved all the chiefs in the area helped unearth a syndicate supplying drugs in the town.

The clergy from the Akorino sect had been started growing the bhang for some months before security officers acting on a tip off moved in.

Addressing the press after the raid, Aguoka termed the move as a major boost against the war on drug abuse in the area.

Aguoka said the raid helped find bhang worth Sh500,000 ready for market and plantations worth millions of shillings when harvested.

“This is a major win on what we have been fighting here and I want to warn those involved in this illegal trade that their days are numbered,” he said.

He added that during the raid, the suspect managed to escape using a boat noting that police will not rest until he is apprehended.

“We are informed that he is a clergy of the Akorino faith and it seems he has been conducting this trade for many years given the discovery we have found today,” he said.

Aguoka said the operation will continue even in other estates to ensure the town was free from drugs that threaten to wipe a generation.

“All the chiefs will continue with this operation and will now move from house to house looking for drugs as we continue with the fight against drugs abuse in this town,” he said.

Bhang/ Marijuana Users Walk Differently: Study Shows…

Smoking pot can affect the way your knees, elbows and shoulders move when you are walking, a new study has found.

The study, from the University of South Australia, found that there are differences between the way marijuana users and non-users walk.

Specifically, marijuana users have stiffer shoulders, more flexible elbows and quicker knees, which move faster than those of non-users, while walking.

While differences in their movements were detected, there were no significant differences between the balancing abilities and neurological functions of users and non-users.

The study’s authors are calling for more research that can determine exactly how marijuana affects people’s movements, as the drug continues to be legalized in the US.

The marijuana users and non-users that the researchers studied were mostly in their twenties. The 44 participants – 22 from each camp – completed screening tests, gait and balance tests and clinical neurological examinations of movement.

Their gait and balance tests involved motion capture systems.

A marijuana user’s knee reaches a greater speed when they walk than a non-user’s knee does while walking.

Their elbows were also more flexible when they walked and their shoulders were less flexible.

The study suggests that cannabis use is linked to changes in a person’s gait but it said that the changes are not clinically detectable. It also called for more research on the topic.

‘Further research is required to investigate if the subtle gait changes observed in this population become more apparent with aging and increased cannabis use,’ the study said.

Study author Verity Pearson-Dennett told PsyPost: ‘The changes in walking were small enough that a neurologist specializing in movement disorders was not able to detect changes in all of the cannabis users.’

Pearson-Dennett added: ‘The main takeaway message is that use of cannabis can result in subtle changes in the way you move.’

Previous research has proven that marijuana has an effect on a person’s brain, heart and lungs.

The CDC has warned that the drug impacts a person’s metal faculties by affecting their reaction time, their ability to focus, their decision making abilities and their emotions.

And since it affects a person’s circulatory system, marijuana may increase a person’s chances of having a heart attack or stroke.

It can also increase one’s heart rate or blood pressure and exacerbate chest pains that some people experience while exercising.

However, marijuana has also been proven to ease pain and nausea that are caused by some medial treatments.

The study’s results come at a time when Americans are paying close attention to the effects of marijuana given its legalization in 30 states and Washington, DC.

Revealed: Children As YOUNG As 10 Years Are Smuggling BHANG And Cocaine In Schools

Children as young as 10 years are smuggling bhang and cocaine in schools, according to antinarcotics campaigner Gladys Chania.

Chania said the situation is worsened by the fact that underage children cannot be put in rehabilitation centres.

“We are having a problem when we have addictions on underage because we can not put them in the rehab centres together with the adults. NACADA should step in and provide solutions for the underage addicts,” she said.

She spoke during the 2017 International Day against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking at Ndumberi grounds in Kiambu town on Monday.

This year’s theme is ‘#listenfirst’. The law stipulates that children under 18 years are not supposed to be rehabilitated but taken to approved schools.

Chania, a child and adult psychologist said the education sector should have a requirement for drug testing.

“Can we have a rule or a requirement in the education sector whereby a requirement of drug testing should be there when the children have done their class eight to form one. This will ensure that we do not transit the problem,” Chania said.

NACADA chairman Julius Ayub said that the most commonly abused drugs among students are tobacco, alcohol, bhang and miraa in addition to opium cocaine and heroin.

“There are 32 emerging drugs in Nairobi alone followed by Mombasa with 21 new drug types. We need to be vigilant on what must be done to curtail this menace,” Ayub said.

Ayub said 2.2 million Kenyans are currently abusing alcohol which is further compounded by the high unemployment rates.

The Authority’s chief executive officer Victor Okioma, however, said they will focus on primary schools since that is where the problem starts.

Interior CS Joseph Nkaissery through his speech read by Kiambu county commissioner Wilson Wanyanga said porous borders pose a big challenge in the war against drug abuse.

“My ministry through NACADA is currently working with 13 county governments in establishing treatment centers at the county level,” Nkaiserry said.

The rot in schools is a reflection of society’s moral standing, sociologist says

40 Students from various high schools were arrested for having sex, smoking tobacco and bhang in a Nairobi-bound bus on Wednesday. The students were travelling home for the August holiday when police intercepted the bus on Karatina-Nairobi highway.

A female student among the 40 arrested was Friday morning charged with being in possession of marijuana when a thorough search from police found bhang, matchboxes and tobacco hidden in the girls underwear. The driver and the conductor of the bus were also charged with several traffic offenses.

Tongues have been wagging on who really is to blame for the students behaviour with questions such as have society, teachers, parents failed in their roles in raising young adults?

According to Dr. Benair Muchocho, Sociologist and Senior Lecturer at University of Nairobi, society is to blame for who the youth are growing up to become. “The indiscipline of the students is a reflection of what Kenyans represent. It is an extension of what the society stands for whether it is the corruption in the police department, the cover-ups, the elections, it is just a sign of the overall moral decay in Kenya,” he says.

“How are the students accessing the drugs, what is the school authority doing to make sure there is no drug use in the school?” Dr. Muchocho asks. According to him the children begin to indulge in drugs and sex because we as a society have failed them like in the case of a school where it maybe a teacher, watchman, school employee who is the drug peddler.

The information age has also played a big role into the behaviour of our teenagers where the child has free access to anything they want to access of the Internet. The parents also need to stop burying their heads in the sand because, modern day children cannot live the way grandparents live because there are different norms and behaviour. “If you do not talk instill discipline in the children when youth, they will research on sex, how drugs are smoked on their mobile phones and that is how they get exposed,” he says.

10 Acres of Bhang for Malia Obama’s heart

The man known as Roy Chambers said that he believes that him and Malia Obama would make a perfect couple. “I tried to approach President Barrack Obama with my offer while he was in Jamaica a few months ago but the security prevented me. I have sent him a regular mail to the white house and also an email so I hope he will reply soon,” said Chambers on Jamaican website 18 Karat Reggae Gold.

He is offering his marijuana farm because he believes it is his most valuable possession which is willing to give to the president.

Here is why women should think twice before smoking marijuana

Despite a shortage of research on the topic, it’s been suggested that drugs affect men and women differently.

And because of the recent legalization of recreational marijuana in the US states of Colorado and Washington as well as medical marijuana in 23 other states, it’s now more important than ever that women understand how THC affects their body chemistry specifically.

Researchers at Washington State University have found evidence indicating that females may build up a tolerance to marijuana more easily than males do.

While it’s not entirely predictive, people with an increased tolerance of a drug are more likely to become addicted to it — which means women may want to think twice before matching a man joint for joint.
