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

Let"s hope Cambodia beats them to the punch and gets the tourist draw.

Some interesting points;

“Health centres with cannabis for foreigners could pay for free treatments for Thais,” (milking foreigners at every turn)

For instance, Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte has admitted to adjusting his dosage of the highly potent and potentially addictive painkiller fentanyl for pleasure, but that has not visibly eroded support for his war on drugs. (hypocrisy knows no boundaries)

the word maybe but not the product
The bong was invented in Africa.

Previous studies of African smoking devices wrongly assumed that all smoking pipes radiated from the West Coast of Africa beginning when tobacco arrived on the continent. It was assumed that tobacco smoking spread across the savannah as a substitute stimulant for kola. Thus, whenever archaeologists found pipes in Africa, they automatically thought that the pipes were from 1600 CE or later. If this were true, it would mean that any African water pipe would be too young to have been invented before the hookah. But it was false. This theory completely missed the African cultures in the east and south that had been developing smoking devices before the arrival of tobacco.
Furthermore, all archaeological evidence indicates that Africans primarily chewed and snuffed tobacco, while they mostly smoked cannabis. The alternate theory that the tobacco pipe was adapted to cannabis by straightening it out and filtering it through water was also wrong because cannabis predates tobacco in Africa.

Simply put: Africans invented the bong to smoke cannabis.

Thais ( and Farangs holding WP's) only pay 30 baht anyway, so free treatment is not really important

Yeah true story. I met one Hard Core old Thai Boxer who told me about Big Bamboo Power. It was completely made out of from Bamboo, bowls and everything.
He told Me this is the oldest way, it`s hollow so it`s like pre-made already.

Made me smoke out of it actually. And it was good smoke too.
After that, He just throwed it in the sea and told me it will clean itself up
until the next time and there is even just enough water to smoke out of it. True story yo.

Offtopic. Guy had huge scooter crash and he ended his career as a boxer. :beer1:

They were smoking bongs in India thousands of years before those Tai monkeys descended from the mountains of China. Jumped up little fucks.

Of course, 'monkeys' was the operative word in your statement!
