Local Proposals submitted to allow seized cannabis to be used for Ayurvedic medicine

Proposals have been made to use the cannabis seized in raids for Ayurvedic medicine, the Excise Department stated.

The suggestions came forward after officers attached to the Colombo Special Operations Unit at the Sri Lanka Excise Department arrested three suspects over their cultivation of a one-acre marijuana field in Aluthwewa, Hambegamuwa.

The field contained over 6,500 cannabis plants, which had a total estimated value of Rs 3.5-4 million.
