Thailand’s Cannabis Revolution

By Sumiitra Yiohan Sooriaarratchi

It’s seriously worth considering moving to Thailand after the country legalized medical marijuana. Hats off to the Thai government and people for being brave enough to take this monumental step. There are some challenges they need to address such as ensuring the rush to commercialize ganja products does not end up hurting farmers. However, its nothing that the Thais won’t be able to figure out. I wish them every success so they can show countries like Malaysia that it really pays to support break-through ideas and technology.

I am also happy this took place in my lifetime; I remember speaking to a friend in 2010 about how ganja or weed should be legalized; this friend was from Singapore and she thought I was crazy 😝; she also thought this would never happen in a place like Malaysia (as usual Malaysia will be the last to adopt anything worthwhile). Well maybe she was right about the backward bozos in Malaysia and Singapore but Thailand is close enough 😜.
