• Family communities to supply marijuana to medical institutions
• Recreational use remains banned as users face fines or jail

Thai households can now grow six pots of cannabis each to supplement their income, the nation’s health minister said, as the first country in the region to legalize medical marijuana further eased rules to promote the crop’s commercial use.

Families may form communities to grow marijuana and supply the crop to public hospitals and state facilities, or use them to make food and cosmetic products as a fresh revenue source, Thailand’s Deputy Premier and Health Minister Anutin Charnvirakul said in a statement Friday.

“Marijuana and hemp are both economic crops and it provides a new option for locals to generate revenue,” Anutin said at a marijuana educational expo at Buriram, 400 kilometers northeast of Bangkok. “We are trying to ease restrictions to allow the public easier access to the plant, but please cooperate and use it correctly.”

To be honest, I wouldn't be so happy now. This is premature. The fact is that I know the system of legislation in Thailand. This is not always customary for European understanding. I even ordered a study on this topic at On one hand, they allow the cultivation of marijuana as production and agricultural crop. On the other hand, they tighten the rules for storing and applying weeds. The fines and prison sentences for drugs in Thailand are very harsh and the prisons are terrible. You need to very carefully learn all the nuances before starting something in this country.
