Marijuana as well as magic mushrooms should be legalized and become additional symbols of Bali, not only because it’s legal in many parts of the world, it would for sure boost tourists interest to visit Bali. - Current laws are only producing paranoia situation, especially for tourists who consume marijuana in Bali.
