BANGKOK — Health officials said Wednesday that the full rollout of medical cannabis is unlikely to happen as scheduled due to a legislative holdup if February elections go forward and a new government comes to power.

 

Lawmakers have quibbled over details in a broad rewrite of the Narcotics Act that would partially decriminalize a number of drugs including cannabis, kratom and opium. Although companion legislation enabling medical cannabis is close to passage, it would only allow a limited form of it until the revision of the act is in place.

Or better known as the great junta cash cow. 

 

“I want them to know that using marijuana as folk medicine can actually save people’s lives,” Thiravat said. “Although it’s a life-saving method and can improve the quality of life, it’s still illegal.”

 

It could save the livelihoods of Thai farmers, but they just keep forgetting to mention that.  All that is lacking is a cunning plan.

It seems those damn elections are bringing a lot of trouble, first with tests for students and now with this...

 

I propose postponing the elections for 5-10 years and hope that the new date will be more convenient.

Must have been 'crashing the stash' back in the corn field before the 'confiscation.'  He looks happy and hungry.  :whistling:
