Uday Chopra Wants India to Legalise Marijuana As It's 'Part of Our Culture'; Hilarious Reactions Follow
Uday Chopra (Still from Dhoom 3)

Uday Chopra who is popular for the role he played in Dhoom series is quite prone to Twitter trolls. Until now most of his tweets have been a subject of ridicule among social media users. However, this time the actor had something different to say and Twitterati couldn't believe that they were agreeing with Uday Chopra on a subject. He tweeted saying that marijuana should be legalised in India.

Uday Chopra's tweet reads, "I feel India should legalize marijuana. Firstly, It's part of our culture. Secondly, I think if legalized and taxed it can be a huge revenue source. Not to mention it will remove the criminal element associated with it. Plus and most importantly it has a lot of medical benefits!" Lebanon to Legalise Marijuana: Why are Countries Getting on the Cannabis Wagon?

Hilarious reactions poured in asking about his weed smoking habits. Chopra soon clarified writing, "And no I do not use it. I just really think it's a wise move, given our history with the plant."

Here is Uday Chopra's tweet:

When a tweeple asked him how marijuana was part of the Indian culture, he replied by saying, "Well in Holi, Bhaang (which is similar to marijuana) has been used for centuries. Also during Mahashivratri, many sadhus smoke it in emulation of Shiva. Guess more religion than culture but the two are kind of interrelated." Smoking Marijuana Ages the Brain by 2.8 Years!

Not everyone was happy

He also got into an argument with a social media user who does not believe in legalisation of marijuana.

While some supported Chopra's thoughts, many did not look happy and listed down its disadvantages. Uday, who is the son of late veteran filmmaker Yash Chopra last appeared in Dhoom 3. With Dhoom 4 coming up, we may soon see him on the silver screen again.
