Sirivi village in Navakholo Constituency in Kakamega County witnessed some crazy drama when cops went to raid a local bhang farmer.

The reason for the craziness happened when the police officers were welcomed with hands wide open by the man who even showed them his marijuana plants, according to Navakholo OCPD, Richard Omanga who was quoted by the Nairobian.

“We reached the man’s compound. He looked calm and composed and in fact, he welcomed us politely and we found that he had planted the substance in a small piece of land that he had fenced to keep off intruders."

That's when things got interesting with the 28-year-old farmer then warning the cops that he would curse them were they to uproot the weed.

“We were shocked that the young man confidently warned us against uprooting the drug stating there is a special way of doing it that involves special prayers and if not the stranger or intruder gets cursed by the owner and the plant and from his ‘gods’,” added Omanga.

The police chief narrated that the 'enterprising' man warned them that they would go mad if they uprooted the marijuana because it was a 'sacred medicine'.

“The young man also told us that the substance gives him super energy that helps him to work efficiently and for long hours hence pledging a lot of respect for the drug, which he called ‘Sacred medicine ‘that needs special protection from destructors threatening my officers that in due time they will run mad.

The police officers were stunned by the man's protestations but still proceeded to do their job.

“We were shocked when he told us he cannot allow for his medicine that makes him energetic and work to earn a living to be destroyed and yet youths are being killed and spend time in jail for stealing and engaging in crimes due to unemployment and that is why he took an oath to protect the marijuana and to curse those who destroy or kill the plant.”

But the cops would have the last laugh as days after the dire warning they were still of sound mind, the proud police leader cheekily added.

“He said in due time we will go mad, it is now(Wednesday) two days my officers and I are still normal. He said the power of his ‘gods’ will punish us but for us, the man was speaking under the influence of the bhang and that is why we want to protect our youths from abusing drugs."
