  • Taking to social media on Thursday, Wamae reacted to President Ruto's meeting with Jamaican Prime Minister Andrew Holness as she appealed to him to legitimise the hemp.

Former Roots Party deputy presidential candidate Justina Wamae now wants President William Ruto to legalise Marijuana in Kenya.

Taking to social media on Thursday, Wamae reacted to President Ruto's meeting with Jamaican Prime Minister Andrew Holness as she appealed to him to legitimise the hemp.

"#Legalize Hemp," Wamae reacted to Ruto's photos.

The Head of State met the Jamaican prime minister during his tour of the United States where he is attending the United Nations General Assembly in New York City.

President Ruto in a statement said that Kenya was on the verge of economically liaising with the Caribbean Nation in certain sectors such as tourism and sports to boost trade.

"Kenya looks forward to partnering and working with Jamaica in strategic areas of mutual interest such as tourism and sports for the economic development of the two countries. During a meeting with Prime Minister of Jamaica @AndrewHolnessJM in New York, United States," Ruto wrote on Twitter.

Roots Party earned its reputation for its advocacy of hemp farming in the country.

Speaking during the Deputy Presidential Debate, Wamae revealed that the party was seeking to legalise marijuana compound known as cannabidiol (CBD)  for its sole commercial purposes and not the tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) type, that gets people 'high'.

"There are two cousins of marijuana, THC - which has the psychoactive ingredient- and this is the one that is usually confiscated by police. Our focus however is on CBD which gives you industrial hemp," she said.

"That is the marijuana we are advocating for and industrial hemp is used in industries such as textiles, construction and beauty among others."
