Border patrol police show off their haul of confiscated marijuana Jan. 23, 2017, in Nakhon Phanom province.

 

BANGKOK — The first ever bill to allow limited use of cannabis for medical purposes was approved by the interim cabinet Tuesday.

 

More than just cannabis, the bill would decriminalize consumption of other Class 5 narcotics including hemp, kratom and opium to enable medical research to be conducted – a necessary step toward broader availability for therapeutic uses.

Slow steps towards liberalism at least in some sectors of the law, good news.

"Under military rule, Thailand has made surprising strides toward drug decriminalization after a member of the ruling junta, acting as justice minister, declared the war on drugs a failure and embraced progressive attitudes toward implementing common-sense drug laws."  If the average Thai farmer benefits, then who can complain?  Just in time for the election.

For sure! New crops for farmers trying to scratch out a living and a superabundance of already filthy rich middle men; not forgetting those civil servants in uniform and peaked caps and those in white shirts and ties.

The assumption is that marijuana is also on the list of decriminalised substances, but in LOS one can't be sure: It is also possible that the use of medical marijuana would be permissible, but recreational use not decriminalised (many fines/shakedowns for tourists suddenly lighting up in the bar) and that Krathom (which is already legal in most of the world) gets decriminalised for personal use.
