Dhoom fame actor Uday Chopra is making waves on social media for his bold on whether India should legalize marijuana. Along with fans, Mumbai Police also took to Twitter to answer the actor about the negative effects of his advice and why it cannot be made legal. While Mumbai police’s response was on point, it looks like they missed their own sense of sarcasm and humor in the response and took to Twitter again to send out a hilarious response.
Taking to Twitter, Mumbai Police used the viral ‘This is beyond science’ dialogue from Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar’s upcoming movie 2.0 teaser and made sure that Uday Chopra gets his answer and Twitterati burst out laughing. The cops posted a conversation between a doctor and a “simply naive” person who talks about legalization of marijuana and cocaine. See what they posted-
Simply Naive - Like marijuana, cocaine has medicinal values too?— Mumbai Police (@MumbaiPolice) September 17, 2018
Doctor - That’s for the specialists in medical science to decide & utilise
Simply Naive - Why not legalise it so that we can self-medicate?

Uday Chopra tweeted on Friday that marijuana, also known as cannabis, should be legalised as it is "part of Indian culture" and also has "medical benefits".
"I feel India should legalise marijuana. Firstly, it is part of our culture. Secondly, I think if legalised and taxed, it can be a huge revenue source. Not to mention that it will remove the criminal element associated with it. Plus, and most importantly, it has a lot of medical benefits”, Uday Chopra tweeted.

He clarified however, that he didn't himself use it, but felt like "it a wise move, (to legalize it) given our history with the plant."
And no I do not use it. I just really think it’s a wise move, given our history with the plant.— Uday Chopra (@udaychopra) September 13, 2018
Uday Chopra’s tweet not only invited usual trolling that celebrities sometimes face on social media, but also a response from the city police.
"Sir, as citizen of India, you are privileged to express your view on a public platform. Be mindful, as of now consumption, possession and transportation of marijuana invites harsh punishment as per provisions of Narcotic Drug and Psychotropic Substances Act 1985. Spread the word," said MumbaiPolice.
