Thailand has legalised Medical Cannabis for prescribed medical use only.

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.

It will be a very long while. The law is designed to feed the junta not to make you stoned. Thailand is not the new California.

Can you grow your own or do you have to buy the Monsanto (or whomever) GMO/Frankinweed?

my experience in Thailand was a person could get yaba or yaba ice in less than 5 minutes...
finding weed was a major hassle...bar girls did not smoke it...dealers did not have it...or it was shitty..
but, they could find their fucking meth or whatever else they wanted to smoke in less than 5 minutes...buy a bunch of odds and ends at 7/11 and make a fucking contraption to smoke it with...
mind boggling...the last time i went to Thailand,
i gave up looking and spent 4 weeks without a hit...
landed in PP and had a bag in 15 minutes...
granted..it was not the greatest...
but, the whole vibe was better....
i sure don't see Thailand letting farangs act like they are on medical hiatus...
not going to be like Colorado...

Noticed the same. In Thailand you need contacts or otherwise undercover cops or local dealers rip you off. In the islands and Chiang Mei it’s easier.

Screw cancer patients and others in pain. If pczz can't smoke in a restaurant or on the beach then nobody gets their medicine.
