The youth wing of the congress party on Tuesday, petitioned Goa governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari opposing the state governments move to permit farming of Cannabis for medical purpose.
According to the youth congress, legalization of cannabis cultivation will allow drug trade to flourish and creates more & more law-and-order problems in the State. The local police will not be able to handle the law-and-order crisis that will consequently arise if cannabis cultivation legalizes in Goa.
Youth Congress in its petition requested the governor to deter the State government from taking wrong decision and in the eventuality that the government may succeed in bringing & passing such a bill in the Assembly. Youth Congress appealed Koshyari that as a guardian of the Constitution not to sign the Bill to convert it into a law.
In recent past, Goa chief minister Dr. Pramod Sawant has said that it has decided to keep legalization of Marijuana farming bill in abeyance .
