Drug abuse problem is an international menace and Nepal also has not remained free from its tentacles. Cannabis is widely grown in almost every part of Nepal since time immemorial.Nepal also has a problem of wild cannabis growing in abundance in high regions of mid west and far western part. In the southern part of Nepal illicit cultivation of Cannabis plants is lured
by the growing demand of the cannabis in the Indian Market. It is very difficult to destroy wild growth of cannabis plants in the hilly regions due to the difficult terrain and in the Southern plain the attractive price of the product has been the contributing factor for its production.Customarily as well as for medicinal purpose, it has been very commonly used by the people in limited quantity which still prevails in many occasion even though there is stringent legislation which prohibit its production, transport, trafficking as well as of the use of the stuffs. Every year law enforcement agencies destroy large areas of illicit cultivation of cannabis plants in southern part of Terai regions. There is no doubt that marijuana, hashish and hashish oil are illicitly produced and smuggled out of Nepal.
