Why does the government pose a Ban on things which have not been Scientifically proven to harm us?

A High Court bench of my country, on Oct 24, 2018, passed a law which asks telecom providers to block all pornographic websites. The 1961 international treaty Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs classed cannabis with hard drug thus our government, again, banned its sale and trade. Both of these have no proven harmful effect on us(Unlike Cigarettes) and have a huge potential market (Especially cannabis as the Export can generate a tremendous income), at the same time, the sale of the same in black looses government a lot of money and opens doors to a lot of criminal activity. So, why (What political Agenda) not take an example of other countries (US, Canada) and removed the imposed bans? In this case, the mentioned Country is India.
