Popular Post webfact 167159 Posted March 29 Popular Post Share Posted March 29 Picture: Thai Rath Whistleblower and former politician turned darling of the Thai public, Chuwit Kamolwisit went on Facebook in his continuing war against weed. As well as attacking its chief proponent of its legalization last June - Thai health minister and Bhumjaithai party leader Anutin Charnvirakul. This was reported by Siam Rath who appear to be joining the firebrand former TV presenter in his weed war. they seize the opportunity to report every negative weed story, especially involving under age users. Without providing a shred of his own evidence Chuwit claimed that kids in Thailand were becoming addicted in vast numbers to weed. He said that Thai and US doctors have made studies that show marijuana can't be used for mental health problems. Quite the opposite - weed causes mental health issues. He launched into a tirade saying that weed causes delirium, and many psychotic disorders such as confusion, disorientation, forgetfullness, ringing in the earsn and paranoia. Far from addressing sleep disorders he said that smoking weed leads to insomnia and panic attacks. Then he claimed that UK studies showed that marijuana users were three times more likely than non-users to develop mental health issues. He challenged detractors to show him the evidence if they disagreed. Yet he had no specific evidence himself, notes ASEAN NOW. He said all this was Anutin's doing. He wondered if his Bhumjaithai party would get into power on the back of it or be sent packing. It is a cornerstone policy of the BJT, reports ASEAN NOW, that dates back to their 2019 manifesto. Chuwit said he would be continuing his war against weed at the Asoke MRT (in downtown Bangkok) at 5.30 pm today. You can bet that the Thai press will be there. -- © Copyright ASEAN NOW 2023-03-29 - Cigna offers a range of visa-compliant plans that meet the minimum requirement of medical treatment, including COVID-19, up to THB 3m.
