`Don`t deliver bhaang`, Zomato tells user; Delhi Police joins in


As Holi posts and memes flood social media ahead of the festival of colors, a post from Zomato says they are “do not deliver bhaang ki goli“, has gone viral.

Twitter user Shubham had repeatedly asked if the platform delivers “bhaang ki goli”.

In response, Zomato said, “Someone, please tell Shubham from Gurgaon that we are not delivering bhaang ki goli. He has asked us 14 times”.

Delhi Police also joined the conversation, posting: “If anyone meets Shubham… tell him not to drive if he consumes Bhaang”.

The tweet caught the attention of many on the platform and elicited several reactions.

“Hello @zomato, I live in Delhi not Gurugram. It has been a ritual to consume Bhaang on Holi every year, especially since my birthday falls on Holi. Please try to understand my situation,” one user responded to Zomato’s tweet.

‘Bhaang’ is made from the leaves of the cannabis plant and is usually consumed in Holi mixed with “thandai” or in some foods. When the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act in 1985 classified cannabis as a “drug”, it exempted bhaang on social and cultural grounds.
