Uday Chopra talks about legalizing marijuana in India

According to actor Uday Chopra, India should legalize marijuana as it has medicinal benefits and can be a huge revenue source.


He tweeted, "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!"

Son of late veteran filmmaker Yash Chopra, Uday clarified that he did not smoke marijuana himself but found legalizing it a "wise move". "And no I do not use it. I just really think it is a wise move, given our history with the plant," he tweeted further.


On the work front, Uday was last seen on the silver screen in 2013 as Ali in the third installment of the Dhoom franchise.

The 45-year-old actor made his acting debut in 2000 in the Shah Rukh Khan-starrer Mohabbatein and was later seen in films like Mere Yaar Ki Shaadi Hai, Mujhse Dosti Karoge!, Dhoom, Neal 'n' Nikki and Pyaar Impossible.
