Bhubaneswar: The State Government on Tuesday denied the proposal to allow cannabis or ganja cultivation for medicinal purposes.

Excise Secretary Sushil Lohani after attending a meeting in this regard at the Lokseba Bhawan here said that the Law department has rejected the proposal.

Reportedly, as cannabis contains some medicinal properties, some industrialists had proposed that farmers should be allowed ganja cultivation on their own land.
