Indian don't smoke marijuana, if you'd never been there. But like 50% meat in American Chinese food, 'pot' had been blown out of proportions.
In 2 years staying with Indian in villages & towns, never seen them smoke marijuana or offer me to. Tourists, however, were deeply engaged with it.
Where tourist arrive in masses for 'smoking yourself 24/7' vacations, many locals too became daily smokers. If you just take a random bus beyond the big cities, you have a chance of only 1:10,000 to end up in such a destination.
Indian treat Marijuana in equal or lesser in importance to other Ayurveda herbs and temple offerings. The simple proof is that it has little to none presence in traditional pharmacies, botanical gardens and markets.
Why in the west it keeps being campaigned and glorified it as THE solution?
Obviously there are a stress/pain that remain with no built-in answer in our everyday lifestyle in either business or leisure environments.
Here, I came across a boy playing in the bush in northern India, where Cannabis is a native wild weed.
