High time India, the land of bhang, legalises marijuana: Shashi Tharoor

In the US state of Colorado, where cannabis has been legal for four years, there were over $1.5 billion worth of sales in 2017 (incidentally, Colorado’s population is just 0.4 per cent that of India’s).
India could lead the way in Asian cannabis regulation – creating thousands of jobs from farms to factories.

The international prohibition of cannabis has failed in every country that has attempted to implement it. Instead of stopping drug use, cannabis prohibition has fueled violence and criminality, increased health harms, and cost society an exorbitant and immeasurable sum of money.

What’s your take on this? Isn’t it time we revisit a LOT of archaic decisions?
