Thailand’s Prime Minister Puffs Weed Vape at Medical Marijuana Press Conference

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.

Thailand is destined to reclaim its title as the Land of Smiles, perhaps with "Hungry Nation" added for good measure.
The idea that seeing the world is going from place to place to look at obvious things is an illusion natural to dull minds.

:dragonchase: This is a Very wise move by Thailand .Their economy will benefit enormously & many rural people will receive extra legitimate ( and therefore taxable) income.Eventually Cambodia will follow suit when their agricultural public servants see the massive income/profits that their Thai neighbors are enjoying.

^^^ I would replace "smart" with desperate. Their economy is actually contracting. Major corporations, e.g., Mazda, are moving some manufacturing back home or to Vietnam. Quite a few factories suddenly closed up shop, putting thousands out of work. Agricultural sector is crying because their products are over-priced due to the soaring Thai baht.

^^^ I hope you're right, and that a currency correction is to come.
