    why not just legalize it& tax it ... educate people what the benefits are and the downside ... alcohol is as much or even worse for your system than marijuana ... developed countries run their economy only on the sales of marijuana . I hope people do realize this earlier and legalize something that shouldn't be illegal in India in the first place . benifts are you wouldnt have to buy weed illegally anymore, cops wont have to waste their money cracking down such crooks , employment for growers and dispensaries . make rules such as legal age of smoking min 24 ....

    Uaday Kumar Rai is professional chor. He was caught 6 times. Always think and choose the profession, later you can not give-up, even it can transferred to your children also.

    Useless creatures.. Give them treatment of life time so that they never get another chance to continue the business. Police will arrest them, our legal system will release them . in few days they will start business again with more contacts which they received from jail. Unless we improve our legal policies these crooks will never change. Please implement rules similar to gulf countries. No one will dare to do such crimes.
