A visitor smokes marijuana at "Hippie Hill," a retreat in the mountains surrounding Kathmandu, Nepal, Thursday, Sept. 30, 2021. Widely available marijuana once drew thousands of hippies to Nepal, where its use was not only accepted but embedded in both the culture and religion.But the country followed other nations in outlawing marijuana in the late 1970s and chased away the hippies who came on buses from Europe and United States. Half a century later, campaigners are seeking to again legalize the farming, use and export of marijuana as more countries allow its medicinal and recreational use. (AP Photo/Niranjan Shrestha)
