Cannabis becomes big business in us all,” says Samer Ahmed, founder of Dadaab, a nonprofit organisation that works to end deadly gang violence. Ahmed, who is also a director of Dadaab in Somaliland, argues that despite the criminalization of the drug, “there’s a really high price to pay for these guys getting away with it.”
“There is no real incentive for gangs to actually buy and sell drugs,” says Ahmed, who also runs a local drug and criminal education and rehabilitation center, which he founded in 1998. “It is easier for a gang member or a gang associate to sell drugs.”
And because the criminalization of drugs is so widespread, gangs have had바카라 little incentive to reform themselves.

Hashish is a favorite here, says Alabi, because it has both stimulant and psychoactive qualities that make it great for a variety of moods. Hashish is also an illegal narcotic, which 더킹카지노makes it less likely to get you into trouble.
“For a lot of people, hashish is like the most dangerous, cheap drug in the world,” says Samer Abdirahman, the founder of the American Institute of Somaliland, which has helped build Hashish for about two decades. “But it was easy for the police to catch an
