The best reason to legalize marijuana is that no deaths by marijuana has been filed. But there's been several death by liquors..

Cannabis and its derivatives (marijuana, hashish/charas and bhang) were legally sold in India until 1985, and their recreational use was commonplace. Consumption of cannabis was not seen as socially deviant behaviour, and was viewed as being similar to the consumption of alcohol. Ganja and charas were considered by upper class Indians as the poor man's intoxicant, although the rich consumed bhang during Holi. The United States began to campaign for a worldwide law against all drugs, following the adoption of the Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs in 1961. However, India opposed the move, and withstood American pressure to make cannabis illegal for nearly 25 years. American pressure increased in the 1980s, and in 1985, the Rajiv Gandhi government succumbed and enacted the NDPS Act, banning all narcotic drugs in India.

What is taking so long for decriminalizing cannabis?
How can we do more than just signing a petition?
There has to be some governmental way to make this possible?

I used to think drug war is a kind of war that is fought between government and peddlers.
I was so wrong.
But the truth that I have come to realize is that it's war which is not just out there but also in the houses of young minds who choose to smoke pot and between parents because they believe in it (everyone is scared of the unknown)

I no longer can take this Injustice.
My parents have lost faith in me because of 1937 law made by few rich to control a mass.

We have to lie and hide about this from society, which psychological leads to suppression of guilt, shame, fear, sadness in us.

It is true that any nasha could be abused, danger is real! But fear is just an illusion. And balance is the key.
