Hindu holy men were joined by devotees and the public Friday at a revered temple in Kathmandu where they lit up joints during an annual festival despite prohibition and warnings by authorities.
A group of ruling party lawmakers has recently filed a petition to legalize the farming and use of cannabis.
During the festival, devotees visit temples of Hindu god Shiva.
Currently, the use of cannabis is punishable by prison sentences of up to a month for users and 10 years for traffickers.
