The primary duty of the Kenya Police Service is to guard the public against criminal wrongdoers and, when the need arises, restore civil order. Ideally, they should respect the moral dignity of every Kenyan regardless of age, gender, religion, tribe, race, or political affiliation. But that is not always the case. Our law enforcers are characterized by the use of military tactics and equipment, and a culture of inhumanity and intolerance.

Some genres, such as reggae and hip hop, have their foundation firmly entrenched in weed while in others, such as country and jazz music, weed is cleverly curved into their lyrics. There are also genres that do not actively promote weed, but their fans still get high during concerts.
