The Gambia, officially the Republic of the Gambia is a country in West Africa. It is surrounded by Senegal, apart from a short strip of Atlantic coastline at its western end. It is the smallest country on mainland Africa. The country is situated on either side of the Gambia River, the nation's namesake, which flows through the country's centre and empties into the Atlantic Ocean.
Though widely cultivated and consumed by locals for centuries, cannabis and all activities associated with it are illegal in Gambia with violations strictly penalized. In Gambia there are three cannabis harvests per year and its low cost, and ready availability favour its widespread use.
