“Bhang has been used as an intoxicant for centuries in the Indian sub-continent”
“Cultivation of cannabis is government regulated, and illegal without a government permit. Sale of bhang is also government regulated and illegal without a permit.”
So the people of India are selling cannabis to the people via government licensed and regulated shops. Doesn’t that sound familiar to you at all? There has been a Bhang shop in Jaisalmer, since 1977. I visited one in Pushkar. You can’t beat a good bhang lassi.
So, I’m afraid Colorado, this is not the first ever time that this has happened.
Nevertheless, this is indeed a historic moment marking the beginning of the end of a very nasty period of unnecessary and evil marijuana prohibition. I am still struggling to believe it’s actually happening.
