For decades farmers in Lakshmipuram village in Telangana have been harvesting ganja as a cash crop and selling them in open bazaars, unperturbed that growing and selling ganja is illegal. However, their seamless business was interrupted when police cordoned off the village that comprises more than 200 families and conducted a search operation in the village. One of the arrested persons told the CI that for decades they have been growing ganja and the police have never entered their village. He said that farmers in the village harvest ganja during rainfall.
