Kush is a specific type of cannabis. It’s popular for recreational users because it’s sometimes thought to be stronger than other strains of cannabis. Some people may also like the feeling of Kush better than other kinds of cannabis and may also think it’s easier to smoke.
Kush strains of cannabis are descended from plants from the Kush region, which is on the Afghanistan-Pakistan border
Conclusion: Liberia has 47,917 at-risk youths, according to the Ministry of Health. At risk are youths hooked on narcotic substances. However, it is fair to say that the two videos circulating on social are not from Liberia.
