Kalla: 'Marijuana can be used as seasoning' JAKARTA - Possession of marijuana should remain a crime in Indonesia, but chefs who use it to spice or season their curries should not be arrested. That is the statement that was made by Indonesia's vice-President Yusuf Kalla. Cooks in parts of Indonesia say they use tiny amounts of crushed marijuana leaves or seeds as a spice in certain dishes.

Speaking to reporters yesterday, vice-President Yusuf Kalla said there was "no way" that Indonesia would legalize of decriminalize marijuana as come countries in Western Europe have done. "It is all right to use it as a food seasoning, but it should not be fully legalized," Kalla was quoted as saying. Kalla dit not mention the problems such a stance might pose to police which has to take action against those using marijuana. Officers have never taken action against using marijuana in the kitchen.

Kalla as well as the police chief both reiterated their support for the death penalty for drug offenders and trafficker, noting that neighboring countries Malaysia and Singapore also execute them.

Marijuana is Marijuana always. It is so stupid to be blind if the herb is used for food season. Who can truest that the Marijuana will be kept in a tight container and will be used ONLY for food purposes? Who will assure that the chief will not smoke one or two Marjuana cigarrets while prepare the seasoned food?
Only people that don't know the corruption in Indonesia can beleive that this "SEASON" will be used only for food!!!

    aaaaaaaaaaaaah legalisation is never going to happen in indonesia unfortunately... the police are making too much money as it is and also the tobacco lobby would never let that happen.... why don't people learn from the dutch example??? holland has the lowest percentage of junkies in the world and the lowest amount of drug-deaths too despite all the tourists who come to holland for dope....
