    Legalize cannabis as its more safer than alcohol.

    Legalize and strictly regulate it! blue collar, white collar and all other kinds of crimes are rampant and unchecked while having a joint is against the law?

    If one ganja cigarette=4 days, Imagine how many life times the drug dealing VIPs should be put in jail.

    The Ministers too should be arrested. They are the biggest offenders.

    What is the punishment in a Muslim country? will a foreigner be released on bail in Maldives and Saudi?

    Chow Chow Thursday, 07 February 2013 10:59 AM

    Why dont you go there and smoke a joint and see?

    Minan Thursday, 07 February 2013 11:03 AM

    if any one commit a crime in Sri Lanka he will have to be punished according to the law of this land. Why you want to drag Saudi Arabia and Maldives, if the same crime is committed there the punishment will be according to their laws.

    Monkssmokeso please legalize it...smoking ganja will reduce causing cancer...

    Fair N Square Thursday, 07 February 2013 07:40 AM

    promotion or deterrent of tourism? how come foreigners are checked for cigarettes when our own people smoke ganja regardless.

    Am not an advocate of ganja promotion but why double standards...?

    Donny Thursday, 07 February 2013 07:47 AM
