A picture of a plant whose leaves resemble those of a Cannabis plant has sparked excitement among Twitter users after it was spotted at a police station.
The picture was shared by one, @patricksafari, who claimed that the picture was taken at the Tala Police post in Machakos County. He further invited netizens to help identify the plant, drawing hilarious reactions.
While the plant is identical to Cannabis, it’s leaves are smooth-edged unlike those of the holy herb. However, Kenyans on Twitter are convinced it is marijuana.

It’s a salient tree that grows incommunicado. Uprooting it is an infringement to its right to grow and degrading the environment which we are fighting to protect tirelessly. #FreeBobiWine
