On the contrary side, the social justice and empowerment secretary, G. Latha Krishna Rao, said it may not be appropriate to legalize such drugs in view of the large population and low level of literacy in the country.

PM Narendra Modi has directed the GoM to study the draft policy for drug demand reduction which addresses the problem of drug and substance abuse in the country.
