Miraa farmers got some reprieve after the UK declined to ban the exportation of Miraa. The Advisory Council on Misuse of Drugs says it did not find any sufficient evidence of either health or social harms caused by Miraa, to justify its control in the UK. Nyambene Miraa Traders Association Spokesman Kimathi Munjuri says if another ban was issued like the Netherlands, it would have spelt doom for the business.
