It could be worth 8.5 billion if recreational use is added.

Nuh, he's too interested in trains. Nice thought though.

Why not legalize, the products you could sell could alone make millions of baht for the government. Come on PM Prayut, you know it makes sense.

They're going to set up a joint committee to see how they can best roll this out to not let potential profits go up in smoke.

The only slow down is getting the system in place that allows the connected to benefit. Once that has been sorted sales will start.

The stoners are getting excited again. Lost interest in it years ago, sounds like harmless fun though. 

Just hope you're not smoking glyphosate, chlorophos and the rest.

Why is this hard to comprehend? Ganja is less dangerous than alcohol and taxing it would fatten the government coffers. It would also reduce the number of people being put into the overcrowded jail system.

Having put all their eggs in the Chinese tourism basket, recreational marijuana is the one thing that would bolster their Western tourism when the Chinese economy falters.

It would add some much-needed excitement to the tired Thailand brand as the baht continues to rise.

If they play it smart, it could come to eclipse Thailand's reputation for sex tourism, in the same way that a liberal attitude towards cannabis became more strongly associated with The Netherlands than hookers.

Smart?

You're having a laugh.

I agree with your entire post though. I'd caution that China, Korea, Japan, Indonesia, Singapore, have a long long way to go, for them, Ganga may as well be flesh eating Krokodil. and they could strong-arm Thailand's conservative trough-feeders to realise that there's still much more to be made in keeping it illegal.  

Here's a stark example.

Projected UN cost of supplying legit opiate pain control to the entire world is $100 million per annum.

Police global drug prohibition costs $100 Billion p/a and rising. 

Where there's a cost, someone's making a profit. 

Simple.

They really need to fix this issue fast as I hate buying stem BS from shitty dealers at vastly overpriced, more then triple western prices for shit quality,  Wish it was easier way to get it.  I even asked a thai to get it for me and they got ripped off worse from the taxi
