It all began when Uday Chopra tweeted why he thinks marijuana should be legalised in India. The actor presented a few arguments to support his demand, including "it's part of Indian culture" and has "medical benefits". He posted, "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!" He further wrote.," And no I do not use it. I just really think it's a wise move, given our history with the plant."
Of course, the Mumbai Police had the most savage reply to Uday's tweet as they wrote back, "Sir, a citizen of India, you are privileged to express your view on a public platform. Be mindful, as of now, consumption, possession and transportation of marijuana, invites harsh punishment as per provisions of the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act,1985."
Of course, the Twitterati loved the Mumbai police's kickass reply and some were even reminded of the Dhoom series. Here's what some of them wrote-
"When Mumbai police becomes ACP Jay Dixit #DhoomOnTwitter."
