Anybody from the West obtained a Marajuana Card

Recommended Posts

You might get one if you have a problem that calls for the use of cannabis not because your an American. I mean I am from the Netherlands surely one should have been given to me years ago then 🤣

 

AFIK you need to get some kind of prescription from a doctor. Maybe its better to ask this in the health forum. This is not about recreational use but about use against pain and so on.

I read only one course for Doctors has been completed, allowing them to issue cards/scripts. So, I say it would be hard to find a Doctor who is approved to issue the card. It will be interesting to see how this plays out over the next year.

This article lists the treatable conditions:

Quoting:

Quote

 

According to Tares Krassanairawiwong [apparently of the FDA - my note], the administration is classifying potential valid conditions into into three groups.

 

The first includes those that existing scientific proof shows can be treated by marijuana: nausea in cancer patients, epilepsy in children unresponsive to other treatment, multiple sclerosis and chronic pain. The second are those for which cannabis can improve quality of life: Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, stress and terminally ill patients. The third group includes conditions for which cannabis would be an experimental treatment, such as the use of its extract to kill cancer cells.

 

 

This article talks about tourists with medical certificates:

I would be inclined to consult with a physician and/or lawyer, before I would act based on an article from KSE.

I went to a clinic on soi 2 Bangkok, I have a medical card for marijuana for insomnia and a prescription for zoplicone for sleeping. 

i spoke with the receptionist, told her of my issues. Showed her my card and prescription. She told me there would be an initial consultation, and then didn't foresee any problems in obtaining the card.

but the consultation was $1 k baht and the oil was $3 k baht for a rather small amount, 5-6 times the cost of back home.

too expensive for my tastes, uncle somchai got my business.

I know of one western passport holder that got a card. From somewhere in Surat Thani I believe. No idea what visa he is on or what reason he gave for needing the card. I did not apply - it's early days and there could be complications if the scheme reverses.

I was behind the Maha Nakhon building trying to wend my way into the old Chinese cemetery there (too many dogs and I didn't have my stick) when i spied the leaf of happiness on a fancy premises.

 

So I went in and was told that farang can get a prescription,but there is no legal thc oil available yet.

 

"But you are from USA, only for Medicine, ok?"

Ok.🤪🤪🤪🤪😌

Posts discussing illegal activity and off topic posts have been removed.

 

Some westerners have received prescriptions for medical marijuana, yes - usually CBD oil not products with THC.

 

Be aware that there is not yet a registered, FDA approved product out and there have been reports of adverse effects - some severe - from use of the nonstandardized products currently being dispensed.  Including possible toxicity from pesticide content.

 

GPO is coming out with CBD oil soon and that product will be trustworthy. I would advise anyone with genuine medical need to wait for it rather than risking their health on products being churned out rapidly without proper quality testing or FDA oversight.

 

And I would advise those whose interest is purely "recreational" not to post about that here. And not to throng to medical marijuana clinics, it may lead to a backlash and might indeed cause there to be a restriction applied to foreigners in future. Currently there is none, but it will come if people try to misuse the system.
