Legalise Marijuana in India

This petition had 217 supporters

Lets come out and speak against the taboos imposed on us by the mindless following of western countries . The ban on cannabis products in India was imposed only in the late 80s after the US government led by Ronald Reagen put pressure on Indian PM Rajiv Gandhi to do so. 

Marijuana and its products have been an integral part of Indian healing practice 'Ayurveda' from times immemorial . The banning of marijuana and then its legalisation in some parts of world made us feel deja vu . It is like the times when the westerners mocked the natural healing practices of India and orient. But as the the microbes are mutating, it is becoming harder and harder to treat them with the use of chemicals and doctors worldwide are moving back towards alternate healing practices. 

Furthermore the criminalisation of cannabis prompted the cannabis growers to manufacture and sell more harmful chemical substances like Methamphetamine, cocaine and heroin. As the risks were the same while the profits much higher in the chemical drugs .

These drugs are becoming increasingly popular. It is high time that Indian think-tank takes a bold step and push for the legalisation of cannabis in India.

This way the distribution will be much more controlled and the government will earn precious rupees in the form of tax. Cannabis will also affect the abuse of Alcohol and tobacco in India as they are more injurious to health. 

If psychoactives like liquor and tobacco are sold freely, then why is cannabis banned that is comparatively safer. We hope PM of India will not succcumb under the pressure of liquor lobby and tobbaco lobby , and will take steps to ensure research into cannabis legalisation.
