क्या आप धूम्रपान भांग
Hindi for "do you smoke cannabis"
Edit: From Redditor "StoneInFocus"Phonetically the Hindi for "do you smoke cannabis?" would be "kya aap dhumrapaan bhang?" or you could say "kya aap dhumrapaan ganja?" for those who are wondering.
The use of cannabis in India has a history of pleasure, traditional medicine, and cannabis is used for religious purposes.
The first known reference to marijuana in India is to be found in the Atharva Veda, which may date as far back as the second millennium B.C.LINK

Cannabis Culture has an article about "Bhang" a traditional beverage of India.
by Chris Bennett - Saturday, February 27 2010 For millennia, copious amounts of the cannabis beverage "bhang" have been consumed at the Hindu Holi Celebration, also called the Festival of Colours, which is a popular Hindu spring festival observed in India, Nepal, Srilanka, and other countries with large Hindu diaspora populations.

Malana, Heaven On Earth.India Wednesday, 8 June 2005
Trekking through a thick cover of marijuana, for almost a day had me mesmerised with the herb. As the bus traversed through Anandpur Sahib to McLeod Ganj,* I was ruing I could not lay my hands on the herb, but instead let my camera talk to ‘Shiva’s Herb.’ Here I was trampling through little plants that had sprung up on the foot tracks. Carksun, the Dane with us; considers it sacrilegious to trample the plants.
