Medical marijuana legalized in Thailand

Hemp plants are grown in various parts of the world for the medical purposes. And these medicinal plants are not at all harmful for the health. Yet, most of the countries have considered this plant under their Narcotic Act, making it illegal for consumption.

And this is the case with maximum South East Asian countries, where the punishment for drug usage is extremely harsh. Specially in countries like Malaysia, Singapore, etc. the drug traffickers can even be subject to the death penalty.

But so far, most of the countries including Canada and Columbia have legalized marijuana for the medical research purposes or even recreational purposes. But Thailand was still far behind, considering it illegal. On Tuesday, even Thailand modified its Narcotic Act of 1979 along with handling more such bills before New Year, and made Marijuana legal for medical use and research.

This came as a surprise to many, since Thailand is known to have some of the most strict punishments for drug abuse. It is the very first drug legalization in the country.

Earlier, till 1930s, people of Thailand used Marijuana for medical purposes such as relieving pain and fatigue. This was more of a tradition in the country. But the drug was soon made illegal for any use. The legalization in the parliamentary session came as a New Year’s gift to the people of Thailand.

Even though Marijuana is still not made legal for recreational use, but it is still a baby step forward. With time, everyone is hoping that it would become available for recreational purposes as well.
