Why marijuana is banned in India, and the case to legalize it

Cannabis India

After the death of #SushantSinghRajput​, we saw how our lovely news channels took a sudden turn in their coverage to make it all about #Drugs​. Not just any drug though, it was focused on marijuana, for the most part, with some other CBD oil-type things thrown in just for the heck of it.

Ironically, this wound up starting a conversation on the use of #marijuana​ in India, but it soon went downhill because nobody really had good, informed opinions on this magical plant.

So, Meghnad S, our in-house (so-called) expert on stuff, takes a deep dive into the subject of ganja: its history, why it was banned, why it might get unbanned, its recreational and medical uses, and a little bit on how it might make sense to legalize, regulate and sell it. If you want an informed opinion on the subject, this one's for you.

Prohibition is significantly worse for you than cannabis.
