Drug abuse is a major issue in Kenya, especially in the city of Mombasa and especially among men in their early 20s. Women in Mombasa have held public protests, asking for better enforcement of the laws against narcotics. In Mombasa and Kilindini, there are approximately 40 maskani (meaning location in Swahili) where drug abusers meet to share drugs. The traditional recreational drug of choice is cannabis, but heroin injection is becoming increasingly popular. In a survey, 70 percent of recreational drug users said they were using heroin.
Budding Prospects An “irresistible” (Los Angeles Times) novel about the adventures of three men growing marijuana in Northern California All Felix Nasmyth and friends have to do is harvest a crop of Cannabis Sativa and half a million tax-free dollars will be theirs. But they haven’t reckoned on nosy Northern California-style neighbors, torrential rain, demands of the flesh, and Felix’s improbable new love, a wayward sculptress on whose behalf he undertakes a one-man vendetta against a drug-busting state trooper named Jerpbak.
