Large haul of confiscated marijuana to be processed into oil

The Office of the Narcotics Control Board (ONCB) is transferring more than a tonne of confiscated marijuana to the Department of Thai Traditional and Alternative Medicine and the Department of Medical Sciences to process the haul into 600,000 bottles of cannabis extract, the ONCB director said, adding that this move is not violating any convention on narcotics. 

 

Niyom Termsrisuk, ONCB secretary-general, who transferred the cannabis after gaining approval from Food and Drug Administration, said the two departments will process the drug using traditional methods. They are expected to use 1 tonne of the marijuana to produce 660,000 5cc bottles of cannabis oil, while the remaining 5 kilos will be used for medical experiments. 

 

As for talk about Thailand and Malaysia’s plans to allow independent cannabis farming violating the 1961 Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs and the 1971 Convention on Psychotropic Substances, Niyom said he has already checked and learned that this is nothing but a rumour.

 

He also claimed that no Asian country was violating the conventions, adding that people wanting to grow cannabis must explain their reasons to the International Narcotics Control Board first.

If it was grown outside the law it almost surely will have a lot of pesticides and chemical fertilizers on and in it. Will they test it?

Mexico used it in the ‘70’s at the request of the US. A lyric from a song I forget had the line, “Paraquat, body-rot, Colombia here we come.”

Let the good times roll, or bong ,whatever...how do they smoke this oil??

If it's cheap enough you can just drink it that's what Mel52 does.Otherwise just put a bit in a spoon and heat it up a little and mix it with tobacco and smoke it in a bong or joint.

Last time they said they could not use any of the confiscated product as it was found in testing to be too contaminated.

Maybe the people growing it were told to stop using chemicals so that it can be used for medical purposes.
