Yep the slippery slope has just got steeper.

As if not enough drug problems are in Thailand already... growing at home is a recipe for disaster.

And another dead soldier in the failed war on drugs. Time to stop regulating what people put in or take out of their bodies.

Terrible idea.  It rots the brain.

Hope none of you who support it ever get crashed into by one of these buzzed drivers.

Big problem in some of the western states that have legalized it.

BANGKOK (NNT) - Parts of marijuana plants, including leaves, roots and stems, can now be used in food. The Medical Marijuana Institute was officially launched today to provide information about marijuana to the general public, while promoting it as a cash crop of Thailand.

 

The Public Health Minister, Anutin Charnvirakul, presided over the Medical Marijuana Institute opening ceremony, and delivered the government’s policy on marijuana to the agency. The institute will serve as a coordination center for various agencies, and assist the public and private sectors.

 

With most parts of cannabis removed from the country’s illegal narcotics list, the institute will promote marijuana and hemp as cash crops, helping Thai people generate more income and paving the way for the industrial sector to develop beneficial products, such as food supplements, medicines, cosmetics and cooking ingredients.

 

Mr. Anutin insisted that all households have the right to grow marijuana, but they must comply with related rules and regulations concerning planting, extraction and production.

 

They are to work together as a community enterprise and request permission from the government. Currently, about 2,500 households and 251 hospitals in 46 provinces have started growing some 15,000 cannabis plants, which will become another cash crop for the country’s farmers.
