The Great Legalisation Movement - India (GLM) was founded in Bengaluru in 2014, with the aim of legalising cannabis and hemp production. The movement held marches in several cities late last year in support of Member of Parliament Dharamvir Gandhi’s private bill to legalise the medicinal use of cannabis and opium. Gandhi and other MPs argue that the ban on cannabis is “elitist”, and that the drug should not be clubbed together with harder intoxicants in the eyes of the law. The Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act was formulated in 1985, where cannabis was listed as a Schedule I drug. But it’s a naturally growing plant, why would you make it illegal?
