Thailand’s Unlikely Embrace of Cannabis.

Thailand is Cambodia's neighbor to the West, and this forum is dedicated to Thai news, stories, reviews, blogs, videos, Thai people and anything else related to the country. A lot of expats have both lived and worked in Cambodia and Thailand, and this area is a place to discuss all aspects of life in Thailand and what's going on there. Most topics are about Bangkok and Pattaya because of their larger populations of expatriates and tourists in those cities, but this is for all things Thai.

I tell ya,
alcohol causes 10x,100 times the problem smoking Ganga will
How many times have you read, "pot smoker runs red light and kills family of 4?"
I agree, though both undeniably lead to mental decline in the long term
I think you can attest to that
nope, i cant, nor can anyone that i smoked with starting back in the 60's
Have never heard of a "pot overdose" either

Look its a non brainier, Pot wont kill ya and once more research is done, it will be shown it might help extend your life, relive pain and in some cases, save it
By legalizing it, you're saying that it's safe for everyone. Which simply isn't true.
Is Aspirin safe? Its legal and helps many many people with pain BUT
Common over-the-counter painkillers such as aspirin kill around 20,000 Americans every year, and another 100,000 end up in hospital as a result of taking the drug, new research reveals
Its up to each person to decide, but please don't believe the hype

Thailand’s Lawmakers Seek Bill to Allow People to Grow Cannabis
Thailand’s Bhumjaithai Party seeks to amend the Narcotics Act to allow each household to grow a maximum of six cannabis plants.
September 5, 2019
By CTN News
BANGKOK – Thailand’s Bhumjaithai Party is holding a public to gather public input on a bill that seeks to allow people to grow cannabis at home.

Key party member Supachai Jaisamut said various interest groups have been invited, including patients; state officials; Thai traditional medicine practitioners and folk doctors. “This bill will be tabled before the House next week,” he said.

The draft, Mr Supachai said, seeks to amend the Narcotics Act to allow each household to grow a maximum of six cannabis plants.

Quoted by Xandrew:

"By legalizing it, you're saying that it's safe for everyone. Which simply isn't true."

How do you come 2 that conclusion? Tobacco is legal but harmful.
By legalizing something you can do a great many positive things for peeps u can't when it's illegal. Peeps take drugs regardless of legality.
Legalize and quality control them so the dangerous strains are limited.
And of course many will say it's unfair to ban a drug the majority enjoy simply because a minority can't handle it.
We need a common sense government that tells the people the realities and truth, and offers freedoms of safety with harm reduction, not outright unconstitutional bans that only works for criminals.

On a related note, NZ is holding a referendum on legalising cannabis next year. Helen Clark (via the Helen Clark Foundation) is pushing for the Yes vote.

Download the PDF: https://helenclark.foundation/wp-conten ... rendum.pdf

Any Kiwis who are still eligible to vote should be able to take part (i.e. if you have been in NZ within three years of the vote, I think).
No matter how much it rains, the dirt never washes away.

The house is in her name, my six plants can be too. I remember Thai stick as being a very good smoke, not like the ragweed available out here in Isaan. I don t need it to be the Amsterdam of SE Asia, just a little piece of Vancouver would be nice.

Thai stick was supposedly dipped in opium tincture.
Doubt we will see that again.

^^^ Urban myth. (occasionally only)
I have never met any serious student of 70's-80's thai sticks that believed it.
(and i have talked to quite a few, at the relevant times and places)

This is backed up by a wide ranging study of australian marijuanna supply in the early 80,s - studying imported and locally grown confiscated dope specifically for contamination by other drugs. Zero evidence was found to back this up.
repeat, occasionally yes.

I do agree tho' that we are unlikely to see the real Thai ever again.
All those strains have been drowned in a sea of that ubiquitous poxy "Dutch" hybrid shit that the kids love these days.
