Thai National Legislative Assembly Approves Legalization Of Medical Marijuana
Jan 02, 2019

Thailand used to have the tradition of using marijuana to relieve pain and fatigue, and it was not until 1930 that marijuana was banned. The Chairman of the Drafting Committee, who proposed the amendment, said: "This is a New Year gift from the Thai National Legislative Council to the Thai government and the Thai people."


Although many countries such as Colombia and Canada have legalized the medical and even recreational uses of cannabis, cannabis remains illegal and taboo in many countries in Southeast Asia. In Singapore, Indonesia and Malaysia, smugglers may be sentenced to death.


In Thailand, the main controversy over the legalization of medical marijuana involves patent applications from foreign companies that enable foreign companies to control the market and make it more difficult for Thai patients to obtain related drugs, making it more difficult for Thai researchers to obtain cannabis extract.


Panthep Puapongpan, director of the Rangsit Institute of Integrative Medicine and Anti-Aging, said, "We will ask the government to revoke all these patent applications before the law comes into force."


Some cannabis advocates in Thailand even hope that the legalization of medical cannabis will pave the way for the legalization of cannabis for recreational use. Chokwan Chopaka, an activist at the Highlands Network, a Thai marijuana legalization advocacy group, said, “This is the first step forward.”
