Cannabis in Uganda
The British as early as 1902 banned the production of “opium” in Uganda, noting that opium “includes… also the preparation known as bhang, ganja, churus, and chandoo natron”.
A 1902 British ethnological work noted that cannabis was used in Uganda, only by men, and particularly smoked in a water pipe. Young men of fighting age were not allowed to smoke cannabis.
