After five months of debates, Government drafted a bill banning the consumption of ethno-botanical substances. All such marketers shall have their authorizations re-issued. If authorities learn about vendors being involved in illegal activities, then, their goods may be pooled out of the market and the stores may be closed. An owner of a store where such products are marketed illegally could serve up to eight years in jail, and a death due to consumption of ethno-botanicals could result in the store owners being imprisoned for up to 20 years. The bill will be put to Parliament, and Government is hopeful the draft law will pass by the end of this parliamentary session.
