Anutin predicts fully legalized marijuana would be a more significant and lucrative crop for Thailand than rice, sugarcane, tapioca, rubber, or other produce in his nation’s mostly agrarian economy

Anutin Charnvirakul wants to legalise pot
and ban paraquat, glyphosate and cholorpyrifos.

He deserves another "Knight Grand Cordon Special Class of the Most Exalted Order of the White Elephant" award.
I reckon.

Some people would say that thailand will not legalise pot becuase corrupt officials make far too much money from illegal crops...

Three's not really enough product on the street for the officials to making any serious money. Let's hope this fairs better for them and sets a trend the neighbors can covet.

Some officials must be making huge bucks from the meth/yama business. The ganja is peanuts. This goes for all over SEA.

My thai friends are saying it will be near impossible to get permission and even when you do you can only sell it to government and not sell OR smoke yourself
Others saying its just BS to try and stop the masses pissed off with the junta...
Drug dealing in thailand starts at the top look who the heroin smuggling MP in the Government is very close too.....

Hopefully, some country in the region will legalise it soon.

I'd like to try a little of it before I die. I've heard it makes you "high". :wink:
