hose who had earlier doubted Baba Ramdev’s intentions about promoting good health, seem to have had a miraculous change of heart.
Smoking marijuana has often been defended by its patrons, citing its medicinal properties, and they couldn’t be prouder to have finally found their spokesperson in Ramdev, or more specifically, his brand, Patanjali.
In a recent interview, Patanjali’s CEO, Acharya Balkrishna, asked for the legalisation of marijuana in India.
”In ayurveda, since ancient times, parts of cannabis [hemp], for instance, have been used for medicinal purposes. So, we are looking at various formulations. We should ponder over the benefits and positive uses of the cannabis plant,” Balkrishna said, in his interview with Quartz.
