Amnesty underway for users, possessors of cannabis

Recommended Posts

Have any of you guy taken or know of anyone who taken it? and Im trying to find out if available here in Thailand

 

Benefits

There are several benefits to Marinol, some of which stem from the fact that it is an FDA-approved drug. They include:

Marinol is legal in all 50 states and is regularly stocked in pharmacies.

Marinol is a pure isomer of THC, meaning that you won't be exposed to any potentially harmful chemicals found in marijuana.

Marinol does not contain any of the other psychoactive cannabinoids found in marijuana, meaning that it is less likely to make you "high."

Marinol has a long drug half-life and will remain at a therapeutic level in your blood for twice the length of time as marijuana.

Marinol is not smoked and is less likely to cause throat and lung irritation (an important consideration for someone with asthma or COPD).

Marinol is manufactured under controlled conditions, meaning that it is less likely to be tainted or contaminated.

Marinol is covered by most health insurance plans.

"...The approved drafts included three announcements designed to grant amnesty to government agencies, private firms, community enterprises, practitioners of traditional Thai medicine, research organisations, patients and everybody else who use and possess cannabis..." 

 

Kudos to you, Thailand!!!

 

This is an enlightened step that I wasn't expecting, and one several other countries could learn from (yes, I mean you, America). Honestly, I think removing the criminal aspect is the single most important element of the process; giving people a criminal record and/or jailing them for something so widespread and common is dumb as hell. And, once you accept that it is dumb as hell, then amnesty, pardons, purging previous arrests and convictions is the proper way to proceed.

 

Good on you, Thailand! I didn't think you'd be demonstrating such wisdom.

 

I would say that I am relieved to see this but;

 

"...Marijuana is believed to be useful for patients battling Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, stress, chronic pain, and nausea related to chemotherapy..."

 

I think my stress levels are still a wee bit too high...

 

:cheesy::cheesy::cheesy::cheesy::cheesy:

 

 

Only hopeless users would call this wisdom.

This could be a sign that the country is moving forward, on at least one level. Prosecuting, or keeping people locked up for pot offenses is so far beyond inane, it defies reason. Same is happening in the US, where even though many states are allowing it, the Feds are still pursuing this voraciously. In the US, it is about supporting the private prison industry. Not sure what it is about here. But, legalizing pot is a smart move. Personally, I would like to see ALL drugs legalized. Demand would drop overnight.

And traffic accidents increase tenfold.  Thais are bad enough on the road now without this kind of assistance.

So why do some think that only Marijuana is the only answer to their medial problems when this i available.

Its the cost of labor, dudes, thats the bottom line. its cheaper to grow here than in the US, no matter how you grow.

Marijuana cultivation could be a huge boon to Thai farmers, but there are four issues to solve:

 

1. Cultivation know how - one failed crop ruins a poor farm family -  the agricultural universities and other government institutions need to teach the farmers how to get it right the first time. Nothing is easy the first time when you are illiterate. 

 

2. There are two markets - medical and recreational, with medical coming online first. The grow houses and testing equipment are a significant investment for families who are so poor that they often find themselves selling their children into slavery. Micro-lending exists in Thailand, but the aid agencies need to be responsive to this development and change their lending guidelines in real time.

 

3. Thai officialdom is a franchise business. The regulators in charge of permitting (providing permits) to farmers need to be kept in line, or they will take the business for themselves, in partnership with the government elites.

 

4. Exports is an even larger market than domestic sales, and Thailand has a huge competitive advantage in cost of land, labor and brand recognition. But the Thai government must fight for the right to export to wealthy countries. This could really help Thai farmers if successful.

Greenhouses can be built inexpensively to control pests and organic pesticides exist in LOS.  Most medical grade cannabis grown in Colorado is done in outdoor greenhouses.  Farmers will be able to learn; local potheads will be clueless as one must know agriculture, not growing weeds.

The 2 main reasons for growing in a controlled environment is to control the climate and the dark period. It is too hot for current strains of cannabis to grow in Thailand.  25-30c is the required temp range for most strains.  Being able to control the dark period allows for several harvest per year instead of just 1.  Cannabis needs to have 12 hours of complete darkness everynight during the 2-3month flowering phase. Also, yield is increased by supplementing Co2 which is only effective in a sealed grow room.

Most never see the end result of starting in this "harmless" drug addiction.  I have worked with a drug addict assistance organisation in a large western city, and can say without doubt 99% of hard drug addicts started with the use of your "harmless" marijuana.

Of course people with a propensity to do harmful drugs are going to start with weed. That doesn't mean weed leads people to harder drugs.
