The Coronavirus has spread like wildfire and people all across the globe are worried about tackling the epidemic. Meanwhile, Indian filmmaker Vivek Agnihotri has found a solution to cure this deadly disease. Taking to his social media handle, Agnihotri tweeted saying that Marijuana can cure to kill the coronavirus.
Earlier last week, the filmmaker shared a news snippet on Twitter that said ‘Marijuana kills coronavirus’ and wrote, “Solution to a lot of world’s problems lie in India. But you can’t find them as long as you ridicule our ancient wisdom.”
He further wrote, “Cannabis is a magic plant. Till the mid-80s it was sold by Govt. Because of Rajiv Gandhi and western Pharma companies it got a bad name. Make cannabis legal.” Little did Vivek Agnihotri know that this would not go well with the Twitteratis.
