Could Thailand, which gave world the bong, legalise cannabis for medicinal use?

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything, whether it relates to Cambodia or not. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

My opinion is that before strings were pulled together by internet and international books and knowledge.

People were started smoking all around the globe. Some say Afgan`s were the first. Let`s face it, land races are all around us.

Even Durban Poison which is very popular now-a-days as a indoor strain. Think about. It`s hard to say who were the first.

But truth must be it was invented in many places at the same time. Makes sense at least to Me.

Specially even Angor Wat. Looks like big golden "nugget" when you look closely. Or pineal gland if you feel me.

Hmm, sea water was actually very soothing. Sea salt inhalers are really old trick and made to sooth your sinuses. And it works. I use sometimes too.

although Cleaning the bong in seawater might not hurt ya, smoking with seawater would not be a good idea :plus1:

Soup; seems u hate Thai's and Thailand, why the fuck were u asking how to get a thai visa in PP than?? :stir: :stir:
I don't like many Thai's but I do like some. The Thai males with their fragile egos, I stay well away from. I'm in a relationship so that cuts my exposure to the females. The government, well they're useless!

I work online and have too many assets to just get up and leave. Maybe in another year, I can engineer a change. I'm giving PP the smell test.

Yes I feel a kind of emptyness with Thai people , there is over importance of money to the point of becoming cold, empty and unable to form relationships with foreigners that aren't money orientated.

Hence the saying Thais only smile to farangs when farang give them money.

the word maybe but not the product
Yes, you are, I believe,... correctamundo!


"บ้อง baawng (Falling tone) (noun) a section of hollow bamboo stalk"

Likely picked up by GIs on R&R during Vietnam War. Probably the only loan word from Thai used in mainstream English i.e. not denoting something in Thailand)
