Bringing marijuana in to Thailand now is like bringing snow to the Eskimo, now that Thailand has its own productions...

Lucky the soldiers had all the placards/notices in place ready for the bust

Forewarned.

Catch 500 Kg and let the men go, meanwhile 500 tons arrive elsewhere while their busy.

Marijuana is now treated as a market product in Thailand.

So now the crime should be illegal importation (avoiding Thai customs), not illegal drugs. If the 500k is abandoned, it becomes the property of Thailand customs for disposition.

They could test the weed if it is ok for medicinal oil, if not it will be for sale somewhere. and people will be arrested for having weed that has more than the 0.2 % THC what's allowed.

The same that likely has been happening for decades now. It goes to the army and the RTP for distribution and profit. Billions are made from drugs, trafficking and assorted tawdry endeavors, by officials here. Nothing has changed.

Over .02% of the happy stuff and it's illegal. 😁

Wonder if Laos will follow Thailand now and legalise it....

 

Think there is still a micro-industry in busting foreigners right after they buy it.

 

Never wanted to find out.

I don't understand why so many posters have the idea that it's all legal now, and I'm 100% sure if it's been 'smuggled' over the border the producers are not being careful to ensure the weed being smuggled complies with the maximum legal 'happy component'.

Some people are going to end up in world of hurt if they don't understand what's allowed and what's not allowed.

Some confusion here. The limit is 0.2% llimit snd seemingly applies to extracts, ie sweets, oils, resins etc, not the plant itself. That's not to say there won't be a lot of flipping & flopping when the legislators finally get their act together. For for now  see:

I'll get rid of the stuff, will personally undertake the incineration with my furnace, which is specifically designed for this chore.  I have many years of experience with this sort of thing and can provide references.  I will bring in able sub-contractors to expedite the process.

Thanks for this.  It now makes sense in a way.

CBD concentrates in the US can max out at .03% without being classed as an intoxicant.

I'm not particularly concerned with this, so in lieu of providing a link I suggest those who are interested give

how much thc is in cbd oil

to your favorite search site, like I did.

Only if it's extract...weed by itself isn't extract.

If growing and owning as much as you want was ok then I would agree with you, but unless you are a registered producer/thai/over 20 then I wouldn't suggest digging up your rose bushes and growing a few kilos.

Why the effort and 'tip off'... I mean.. If its legal right ?? 

Falang goods must be taxed; preferably at a high rate. Marijuana is legal but falang tax must be paid. This 'found' marijuana will most likely be donated to the poor.
