Hemp to be farmed legally in Northern Thailand next year.

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.

Hemp to be farmed legally in Northern Thailand next year.

Post by CEOCambodiaNews » Wed Dec 28, 2016 1:02 pm

CHIANG RAI – Sirinya Sittichai, Secretary-General of the Narcotics Control Board reports that farmers in parts of the Northern Thailand will be able to start farming hemp – legally – from next year.

He said the NLA Cabinet has approved hemp as a commercial plant and that the Thailand Tobacco Monopoly will buy the harvest from growers.

The plantation areas will be allowed in 15 districts in six northern provinces – Chiang Rai, Chiang Mai, Nan, Phetchabun, Mae Hong Son and Tak.

The permitted species of hemp must contain less than 1 per cent of THC.
“If the THC percentage is higher, growers will face legal punishment,” he said.
