Do any of the scriptures mention anything about Bhang or marijuana.

I am aware of the atharva veda reference.

This is not a possible duplicate of "are drugs allowed question".

I just want to know if the herb was mentioned in any of scriptures

    I don't think they are duplicates. This wants to know if they are mentioned. The link wants to know if they are sanctioned. – Rubellite Yakṣī Jun 9 '18 at 17:19
  • @SwiftPushkar I disagree for reasons mentioned in chat; if there is a verse mentioning hemp rope being used or marijuana growing wildly in some region, then this reference is not about whether or not consumption is condoned or not. Perhaps we should ask OP to clarify his intent. – Rubellite Yakṣī Jun 9 '18 at 17:58
