Following increased death rate of cancer patients, the tweep posted;

“This is the time to legalize medical marijuana,” tweeted @DennisM666.


In a rejoinder, Passaris seconded by writing;

I second. #MedicalCannabis #DecriminaliseCannabis

Passaris declaration which received support from a good number Kenyans as well saw calls asking her to do what it is honorable and draft a bill seeking to have a regulation for the growth and safe use of the stimulant.

In the draft Bill, the legislator was seeking to have a regulation for the growth and safe use of the stimulant, including the registration of growers, producers, manufacturers and users.
