For today's weed news we go to the great nation of Thailand.
Up until 1934, cannabis use was widespread throughout Thailand. People used it as medicine and even cooked with it. But, for about the next 82 years, cannabis users were criminalized and punished.
Then, around 2016, former Thai Justice Minister Koomchaya realized that the so-called War on Drugs was bullshit and helped the nation readjust their attitude towards this amazing Herb, which eventually led to the legalization of medical cannabis in the country last year!
And now, many are hoping that Thailand will become the next medical cannabis tourism hotspot in its corner of the world!
"Thai cannabis will soon be the global industry's profit leader, like Swiss watches or Apple smartphones," suggested vice president of marketing of the Thai Cannabis Corporation, in Chiang Mai.
Luckily, many of Thailand's recently elected officials agree, and have done more to help then to hinder the MMJ boom in Thailand.
Pipat Ratchakitprakan, the country's new Tourism and Sports Minister even took to the microphone on his very first day in office announcing that Thailand "... would like to provide medical tour packages, such as detox, Thai massage and other wellness courses that use marijuana substances."
And to add to the good news, the country's Governor of Tourism Authority totally agrees with the Minister, and even told a popular Thai newspaper that he is all about promoting MMJ in his country in order to create what he calls "quality tourism".
I personally think that Thailand's paradigm shift about Weed is outstanding. I feel like it may be the "kick-start" that leads to a change in the way Cannabis is treated in all of Southeast Asia.
Not long after Thailand legalized medical cannabis, the Philippines, where drug users have been known to be put to death by the government, announced that they will be legalizing medical cannabis as well.
And as far as "quality" European and Asian tourists go, if you add high quality, legal, medicinal cannabis treatments to Thailand's incredibly picturesque surroundings and beautiful beaches, I feel like they're going to come flocking and spend thousands of dollars like the Minister hopes they will.
Shit, if they really do make it easy for foreigners to come and enjoy their legal medical cannabis out there, I might have to go revisit Thailand cuz when I went there back in 2001, the word marijuana struck fear in the locals who I asked where I could find some weed.
But anyway, for right now, that's what's up at Thailand!
