regional office for africa estimates more than half of drug users are between 10 to 19 years old. now that is staggering, our very own either kamani went to see for herself out this worrying trend affects daily life. it's a curious sight, an infant slippers thrown with good waste and drug paraphernalia. then again, this is no ordinary home. it's where i see a bianca and her husband lived together with their son. both parents had drug addicts and the slippers belonged to their little girl who died only 6 months after she was born. and so when we went to bed, she was fine. and then when i woke up, she was foaming at the mouth. i got scared, elizabeth, and hoped when i was high and heroine, that i hadn't placed my hand or leg on her, causing her to suffocate. okay. despite the doctors ruling out her
1:33 pm
fears, as she still carries the guilt of her daughter's death and her 2 year diction. the 20 year old was introduced to the habit by her boyfriend. he would secretly lease her cigarettes with a powder. and by the time she found out she was already addicted like that, oh, i was in pain, yawning, and called in a scam. and that's when i saw him and he said you are going through withdrawn and you've been on heroin. now i'm hooked there and there's no way for me to go to rehab with nearly 3000 active injecting drug users. melinda host, one of the highest numbers of heroin addicts and kenya played most coastal towns in the country. it's used by international traffic as, as a transit point for drugs which are transported from afghanistan to the west. the covered 19th, endemic coupled with a feeling tourism industry has only made things worse for uses in this area.
1:34 pm
i doesn't take us long to see just how bad things can get. mohammed is here to get methadone, a synthetic opioid used for drug addiction therapy, but it's not good news. he needs to reduce his heroine intake further before he can be put on the therapy. i took the opportunity to ask him how he's feeling. i mean, as i look at you, i feel like rubbing you in drugs you to go get to him. because i'm going through withdrawal now. where did i ever use hearing? i have nothing. i'm left with nothing. if you see the wesley marsh, it really had me a outside there, many more active and recovering drug users. when they see the camera, they asked, we can offer them work is a deep sense of despair. here as most you are left with nothing but the murray project, a community based rehabilitation center officials here, one of
1:35 pm
a worrying trend that has emerged with a fin demik when school closed and kids took going to school. so the number of vent group is a short term funded because in molina so many people, if you're not taking catering, then they're taking good smoking marijuana and figuring just a minute. i'm one of just got the pandemic is also pushing recovering addicts to the edge. is unfair, but i have thoughts of the love seat and they're very disturbing. but when i come here, i feel some sense of relief, not to lodging you at some reason. if you go said gully meant to say how the government has forgotten us. home. we are left homeless, sick, sick at home, much or she sick in the streets. so we have no choice but to support each other or new for us here, her only support at the moment is her husband himself, an addict. willie, the young mother cleaning a half abandoned house, a fitting metaphor for a woman struggling to keep her life together. that
1:36 pm
was quite a touching story, wasn't that drug abuse or the huge problem and how many rise in problem across africa for yes. x that see that job losses and school clothes as due to the cobit pandemic, cost drug use to increase. but is that the whole truth about drug abuse in africa? let's joint lives show for some answers. let's start with a quiz. the most consumed drug in africa is alcohol. that's right. that means the most drug users wouldn't even call themselves drug users, because alcohol is illegal drug. and as we know, it's actually more socially acceptable to drink than to smoke marijuana. we'll talk about illegal drugs in a moment, but 1st quick question. number 2, what the african country has the heaviest drinkers?
1:37 pm
well, according to the world health organization, it's the shelves, the average person there drinks a whopping 20 leaders of pure alcohol per year. also in the top 5 is uganda, followed by working at fossil, tanzania and nigeria. okay, let's talk other drugs. now. did you know that south africa is the only country in africa where marijuana is legalized? well, we asked people in ghana whether other countries should follow this path as well. for me, maybe i would go in for a week because it seems dr. domestically a platinum of people are using this. so i think maybe read should really go into my view with smoking. it actually is the my like,
1:38 pm
i think something like mixing. i don't really have a fair idea of i read in geno and using i think maybe to you or something like that for like our friends talking about it. now here is an interesting fact. although most drugs remain illegal, the un estimates that by 2030 africa is going to see an increase if of a staggering 40 percent of drug users. why? well, the main reason is that the population is growing and getting younger and younger. and statistics show that young people take more drugs. there is one elicit drug that is especially famous among young people. marry one, i'm a weed, a kind of is also a popular in the population as a whole. are harrowing, cocaine,
1:39 pm
crystal mask. and prescription drugs like tramadol and coding, and then there are local drugs that are often not captured in international statistics. we also have a plan for the growth in med room in mary's account in kenya that grows a plant called cut me to easily available and therefore other people get their high by sniffing, glue or petrol or even smoking lives are part. what i find interesting is that we africans have some of the strictest laws against drug use, but that is not deterring people from consumption when malice, twice from uganda, believe the laws of his country are too strict. his uganda harm reduction that work has been criticized for offering legal support to those arrested for injecting
1:40 pm
drugs like haron. like if you like best. all right, well, what was going to happen in that is using them look good money community already. if advantage of the community, i found it shocking that some you can have even been arrested for seeking help. according to the 2016 uganda, anti narcotics law, addicts cannot go to rehab or get treatment at the country's only clinic that offers medication assisted treatment or mat without reporting to the police and a judge ordering them to get therapy. so i'm not surprised that many decide to stay in the shadow. on top of that african substance, abusers are not only seen as criminals, but also as thinners. so instead of getting them medical treatment,
1:41 pm
families prefer seeking help and church look for them. they are believing that they should be before they just played hope and then that would be more we run away. so what's the best way to deal with a drug issue? first of all, experts say it's important to inform possible users that drugs can have devastating effects on your physical and mental health. even so called light drugs like alcohol or am i want them. so please make sure you know about these before taking anything. experts also believe that it's important to fight stigma, offer free rehabilitation and medical treatment to those who seek it and treat drug users as people who need medical help and not as criminals. let us know what you
1:42 pm
think. thanks for that info. let's show and yeah, bite in the stigmatize zation of drug use as is a good way to tackle the problem. many african countries are looking into the drug policies, especially regarding the use and production of cannabis, and some asking, legalize it, or not. well, as you would expect, bound mixed opinions on the legalize asian of kind of is across the country. we quest people on the streets of south africa, kenya, and my derrier to sadie, our thoughts with us. so since em cannabis is legalized in south africa when we're looking at the medical perspective, all of it, yes, it does increase your health. it does benefit, it's beneficial to you all. but now that ease legalize legislation is much more lenient. so diesel, it's beneficial to society as well. so any tables, it's not going to be clean or lazy. so in the government use that opportunity. they can is it still? they are dead, so something is the talks by them or not?
1:43 pm
yeah. yeah, i think mary, when i should be legal, i because i will go see 30 uniday legalize. i mean, everyone is doing it with just one that covers, you know, so it's better that we can, we should just, you know, start making something out of it. did the poor people been affecting elko to be in the foot from the legalization of guns, who she because although each company's day of the money and they have the facilities, i think it needs to be put. we put that thing, korea, because there is some mist medicine all way in there. some way it will destroy generation. well, we definitely don't want struck to destroy our generation. dewey. thanks guys for speaking up. so what do you think? so your thoughts? what else on our social media platforms? i find it a fascinating debate. now since marijuana made headlines for its use in cancer treatments, medicinal cannabis has been touted as the next big money maker. but in the soto,
1:44 pm
not everybody's happy about the conditions. let's find out why money doesn't grow on trees, but this buds a 100 years for graham. this is mary fino can obvious. it contains high levels of can now be dual or cbd. a popular remedy against inflammation, pain, and nausea. in 2017 sort of became the 1st african country to legalize cannabis farming from a scene of youth creating a whole new industry for the tiny self and african country point thing behind. they moved from the capitol, my favorite book, into her whole village here in the muscle to highland, to walk for the company, m g help. she never dreamed that she would one day group and before living. first time i had, i won't be. and i couldn't believe that this thing can come here at our feet, but it's happen even live and there's no need of us
1:45 pm
to go outside and look for some dog. listen to have ideal growing conditions now, but. but m g health is still the only company that it's for the medical grade cannot be from the country because it is used in the pharmaceutical industry. the production requirements are extremely high. over the past 5 years, m g health has invested over 34000000 euros in greenhouses irrigation systems and skills training. now the company has set it sites on expansion mean play over 280 people. these are young people, very smart people that were never able to find jobs. and today, you know, we exporting to poland, germany shortly in the u. k. but this isn't good news for everyone. we cannot be set to become a major cash crop for big business. small holder, gro was around the country, and now abandoning the plants once clear for the black market in south africa.
1:46 pm
picky, so come only is the only cannabis farmer left in his village. police raids and price competition from sutherland have made it almost impossible to maintain his club. for him, things were much better for the installation kicked me in my village. every household used to have a field of cannabis running on. why do you mean it was all full here and that's how people made the living. but while i lived in cuz it people didn't even bother to grow. mays parents could send their children to school because of kind of best can i cannot, i will add me to key. so come only walk, said his young neighbour, trouble for local. together, they dry and deceived the but before smuggling them over the border. for low cost, he's no way to make his business legal licenses to grow cannabis around $32000.00 euros. way out of range for small holder grew,
1:47 pm
was well frequently targeted by the police. ah, where you go won't get. i feel very disappointed. things didn't work out the way they said they wouldn't buy gifts, and we thought would be able to grow cannabis legally. but i can buy a license. it's frustrating. i think there should be some form of support like a corporation where someone katrina and help us secure a license of one another. then we all put to get a funding that could help us start our business from the ground. again, our face nathan saw, got lucinda after a long day trimming cannot be plant. my honda is ready to wrap up her shift. 2 years ago, she quit her job in a clothing factory material where she saw jeans for 12 hours a day, 6 days a week. in the greenhouse, the walking conditions are much better and she and twice as much as she used to
1:48 pm
cannot be quite literally change her life. just like the patient who will eventually benefit from her. or that i believe kind of both has a bright future. endless photo, and when i started working in the greenhouse, they told me we make drugs for 6 people. people need medicine, so they need the cannabis room for generations. cannabis slamming was frowned upon, or even punished with jail time. little tore has liberated this one's close space for big business, but small hold a group like for local and kamali. i've left empty handed in this evolving sector. it seems they are still winners and losers. it definitely is an evolving sector that needs the right policies. so no one loses out . i don't know about, she would have had enough of drugs, right? let's move away from narcotics and instead, get high on protecting our environment. in
