Bonez just held a minute's silence.
The idea that seeing the world is going from place to place to look at obvious things is an illusion natural to dull minds.

Strange that so many other countries are opening up to medicinal cannabis and Cambodia is cracking down.

Seems to be a promising potential export industry if nothing else.

China been cracking down big time at home too. When I visited in 2013 i couldn't believe how relaxed it seemed to be, walking the footpath in some areas of Shanghai to crys of "marijuana, hashish, cocaine- marijuana, hashish, cocaine..." I went out in the evening for milk and eggs and came back with a free sample and a business card. No more.
Personally though, I think it should be illegal to sell the shit that passes for weed in the KOW.

They only destroy the "unsanctioned" grows.
I think you will soon see a legal market here for medical.
