Drug Enforcement Commission says small scale famers prone to cultivating illicit crops

Drug Enforcement Commission DEC Commissioner Alita Mbahwe says small scale famers in the country are the most prone to temptation of cultivating illicit crops such as cannabis.

Ms. Mbahwe says small scale farmers are easily tempted to grow illegal drug crops adding that it may lead to more people getting access to drugs for trafficking and abuse.

Speaking during the signing of a memorandum of understanding between DEC and MUSIKA in Lusaka today, Ms. Mbahwe said that the partnership with Musika will contribute to the fight against illegal cultivation of drug crops among small scale farmers in the country.

Ms. Mbahwe noted with sadness that a total of 190 cases were recorded with regards to cannabis cultivation involving 212 people in 2017.
