Senegal, officially the Republic of Senegal, is a country in West Africa. It is the westernmost country in the mainland of the Old World or Eurafrasia and owes its name to the Sénégal River that borders it to the east and north. Senegal is externally bounded by the Atlantic Ocean to the west, Mauritania to the north, Mali to the east, and Guinea and Guinea-Bissau to the south; internally it almost completely surrounds Gambia, namely on the north, east and south, except for Gambia's short Atlantic coastline.
Cannabis and activities associated with it are illegal in Senegal with punishments for trafficking ranging from 10 to 20 years hard labour. Due to the country being a popular transit point for hard drugs on their way to Europe, the police are actively focused on apprehending perpetrators.
