You're right, I completely forgot about that. Unless they use autoflowering strains, which are not really the choice of commercial growers for several reasons. They might growing some hemp and claim it is cannabis but once you test it in the lab the truth comes out

Plants developed to yield what is required for processing into medicine have been under development for a number of years. If they are grown under the conditions prescribed then they already know what will know what they will be able to extract. The plants will be supplied and the number per person will be restricted and growing strictly controlled and monitored.

But the news article and this discussion is about the average village farmer.

I doubt they have money and knowledge to set up a decent grow for six plants

Cooperatives and collectives will be formed, financed through micro-financing already in place in villages. That is the way forward.

Here is a photo of a facility near to my home. Poly-tunnels surrounded by a high wire fence topped with barbed wire indicates that something will be grown here that requires security. The shade netting provides rudimentary privacy. I only saw this after the cassava in the field was harvested. Clearly this had been set up to grow more than six plants, if cannabis is what this is for. I should point out also that the main farm for the Thai Cannabis Corporation is 7 km from here. whatisthis2.thumb.jpg.16cb903556565958b0d5c805de044817.jpg

I hope when others are allowed to grow for pharmacies they will allow testing for quality before handing it over

There will be strict control. The plants will be supplied from strains developed to produce the required yields. Nobody will be allowed to grow from birdseed!

Well I never - a pilot project! Cannabis has been grown for many years among the mountains of Northern Thailand. Not my scene, but It was always readily available in the local village as a cash crop where I lived.

They should be looking into growing Cannabis for Medicinal  purpose and Non THC Marijuana for  Clothing/Ropes/Building materials and many more uses.

This could help a lot of farmers for a  better income than what they get now from the oversupply  of the rubber.

Simple, first Thailand was/is in opium. Why not start now with cannabis after (long?) studying how much profit.

Of course they will register any one growing cannabis and track it.

They will buy the cannabis cheap and then it goes to factory to produce the oil and otherwise products.

Of course government and or rich Thai investors will have all the profits. Of course not the growers.

Of course they need large amounts of it to process every day and so now activating farmers and others to grow cannabis

Rubber, rice? They went down. So try something "new". 

What about kratom, that one already started? Putting the trees back in Thailand?

They already missed that opportunity, as many countries sell kratom, even (muslim)  Indonesia.

Sticks were a big part of the Thai economy & world reputation, long before mass tourism. Time to get back to basics. Even if some if the big vultures get the lion's share.

Can't wait to grow my own sticks I still have fond memories of them.

IMHO, I think this is a wise step.

Not only it will/can boost economy for the farmer but, I am quite convinced, it might reduce the consumption of the terrible "Ya Baa" and methamphetamines which are spreading and ravaging the young generations.

Switzerland decriminalized Cannabis, Marihuana more than 30 years ago... Within 3 years the decrease of "hard drugs" was already remarkable!

It is a good step, however, as informed in the Bulletin, it needs a proper regulation.

Way to go Thailand.

Cannabis is a proven beneficial drug for many illnesses (Cancer, Alzheimer, Tourette Syndrom, Parkisons, Autism, Katarakt and many more)  and is also much less dangerous then alcohol consumption.

its proven to turn grown ups into infantiles

Keep going Anutin, you've been promoting this for the past several years with some real progress being made already.

   Don't let the special interests dominate what could be a very good thing for small farmers.

It will be very interesting to see which "special families" are allowed to grow it, and what percentage of the Thai population will never be considered a "special family?"
