    Does that means it is soo dificult to make/grow Ganja in Sri Lankla due to police searches or does it cheaper to bring from india via Air?

    Imposse a ban on import and encourage local production of Ganja.

    Ganja,heroin,brownsugar or hashish all sorts of drugs must be banned in srilanka and those who trafficking illegaly be punished severely..Those who are trafficking drugs are leading a posh life whereas the poorguys who are buying them are impoverished.
