Current Drug Policy of India

Drug policy of India

The major drug laws of India are the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act (1985) and the Prevention of Illicit Trafficking in Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act (1985).

The Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Bill, 1985 was introduced in the Lok Sabha on 23 August 1985. It was passed by both the Houses of Parliament and it was assented by the President on 16 September 1985. It came into force on 14 November 1985 as THE NARCOTIC DRUGS AND PSYCHOTROPIC SUBSTANCES ACT, 1985 (shortened to NDPS Act). Under the NDPS Act, it is illegal for a person to produce/manufacture/cultivate, possess, sell, purchase, transport, store, and/or consume any narcotic drug or psychotropic substance.

Under one of the provisions of the act, the Narcotics Control Bureau was set up with effect from March 1986. The Act is designed to fulfill India’s treaty obligations under the Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs, Convention on Psychotropic Substances, and United Nations Convention Against Illicit Traffic in Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances.

The Act has been amended twice – in 1988 and 2001. The Act extends to the whole of India and it applies also to all Indian citizens outside India and to all persons on ships and aircraft registered in India.

The Act describes itself as “An Act to consolidate and amend the law relating to narcotic drugs, to make stringent provisions for the control and regulation of operations relating to narcotic drugs and psychotropic substances, to provide for the forfeiture of property derived from, or used in, illicit traffic in narcotic drugs and psychotropic substances, to implement the provisions of the International Convention on Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances and for matters connected therewith.

Does smoking Marijuana makes you a bad person ?

Ofcourse Not, said the team leader of TGM when a boy asked him “I smoke weed every now and then. I have high moral values and am very intelligent. I feel somewhat guilty about smoking though, even though it relaxes me and helps to calm my nerves,does it makes me a bad person? 

Here in this case the first party was the anonymous guy and the 2nd party was the TGM executive. But, what if , the same question was asked to some other guy or girl who is not a part of TGM?

Not to worry ! 

You will get two answers 

The legalistic side: These people tell you that it is against the law and have absolutely no clue what marijuana actually is and just blindly follows the  governement on whatever they say. If it is illegal then it must be bad for you and others around you so if you smoke it you are a bad person and they judge you harshly for it even though they have never actually looked up anything about marijuana and dont know that it is 100% natural. All they know is that it is classified as a (schedule 1 <- seriously) drug so you should not have anything to do with it. 

These people are not very educated and just listen to what people tell them 

OR 

You can get 

The smart answers: The people that know that this is a 100% natural plant that grows naturally on our earth. You know that there is nothing wrong with this plant and even after heavy smoking (or any other form of ingesting THC) for a few years there is still nothing wrong with you based on THC alone. These people have done their research beyond what the government told them and were smart enough to realize that this “drug” is just like any other plant on our planet (arguable better at how green it is and the broad category of how many great uses this “drug” has) These are the people whose answer you should listen to because they know what they are talking about. They also realize that smoking weed is more healthy than alcohol and tobacco. Drugs that are still legal. (Actually a study shows that heroin and cocaine are safer than alcohol and tobacco. Honestly look up http://www.cannabisnews.com

No smoking weed does not make you a bad person. It makes you a smart person and all haters can gtfo because they dont know what they are talking about. The government tells you it is bad and they have no scientific evidence to back it up. It is still illegal though just because it was illegal before… Seems like a dumb reason. If you look up why this plant is illegal it is because it was threatening the lumber companies because 1 acre of hemp can produce 5 times the amount of paper as lumber can. So what do people do when something is threatening to take away their money? Well obviously they find a way to stop it even if it is better for everybody else they realize that they themselves wont make as much money so they team up with other companies (like dupont) and get the drug to be illegal. Then it continues with Nixon telling the country that marijuana use leads to communist thoughts and when nixon was president you did not want to be a communist… 

The only way you should feel bad about smoking marijuana is if you feel bad that you have grass, or trees, or flowers growing in your front yard. 100% natural plants that cannot hurt you. 

No dont feel bad, You are a good person
