    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?

    Good Stuff what a petty.

    Game Pappa Tuesday, 20 November 2012 06:58 AM

    This is very bad.

    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.

    Had to be Medical cause at Rs.153 a gram that's some expensive Ganja.

    habeeb Ur Rahuman Tuesday, 20 November 2012 09:32 AM

    The day obama won the election Marjuana was legalised in calfornia.... So legalising ganja is not impossible....

    Mike Wednesday, 21 November 2012 10:29 AM

    Citizen X Tuesday, 20 November 2012 06:15 AM
