    Public Health Ministry Approves Removal of Cannabis From Drug List

    BANGKOK (NNT) - The Ministry of Public Health’s narcotics control committee has approved the removal of cannabis from the list of narcotics list.


    The panel meeting, chaired by Public Health Ministry deputy permanent secretary Dr. Thongchai Keeratihatthayakon, agreed to remove marijuana from the Category 5 narcotics list.


    The draft will be submitted to the Narcotics Control Board (NCB) for consideration during their next meeting on January 25, which will be chaired by Deputy Prime Minister Wissanu Krea-ngam. If approved, the draft will be signed into law by the minister of public health and published in the Royal Gazette for promulgation.


    The announcement is expected to remove cannabis from the list of drugs, except for extracts containing more than 0.2 percent tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). The legal exception will only apply to cannabis grown in the country.


    Food and Drug Administration (FDA) secretary-general Dr. Paisal Dankhum stated that the FDA will establish regulations to manage cannabis plants. Additional measures, similar to those used to regulate the use of cigarettes and alcoholic beverages, are expected to be authorized to restrict the use of cannabis and its extracts in the future.

    So, is this about the "feel good" recreational use cannabis?

    Sadly it appears not here. They seem to be missing the point.

    It's clickbait.

    Put a story about it being legalized on your website, put it on a pizza - as long as it's 0.2% it's all bullshit.

    I think the 0.2 percent only refers to extracts, not the potency of the buds.

    Seems the two must be tied together even with that side expressed. Its just a confusing mess, much like the new Test & Go they have come up with now. Ambiguous as can be.

    It definitely means per bud so anything above 0.2% is still illegal.

    Looking at it - that is certainly how I would understand it in English.

    Sadly, I have found that there can be vast chasms between the original Thai and the English translation.

    We shall see, I suppose.

    I don't think it would be possible to grow buds that are only 0.2 percent THC. The average here is about 15 percent.
