India is a land of tradition and many gods. One of the most well-known Hindu gods is Shiva: god of creation, god of destruction and god who sanctified cannabis. Marijuana and other drugs are openly offered and taken at many spiritual festivals. With the number of drug addicts in India nearing 70 million, Vasu Yajnik-Setia spearheads a movement to combat the country-wide culture of drug use.
