Public Health Minister says cannabis is a step nearer to changing into a cash crop

Thailand’s Public Health Minister says he wants to make cannabis a cash crop… just not the components of the plant that get you excessive. Anutin Charnvirakul, who also serves as the deputy prime minister, made a visit to a hashish studying centre in the northeastern province Bueng Kan, which borders Laos, and posted photographs on Facebook of himself walking through a cannabis greenhouse.
Anutin has been a vocal supporter of cannabis when it comes to the CBD, or cannabidiol, the enjoyable and stated to be medicinal element of the plant, but has stayed fairly quiet on actions to take relating to the psychoactive part, THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol.
Parts of the hashish plant – except the high-inducing, THC-rich buds – have been faraway from Thailand’s narcotics list in December of last yr. Since then, numerous Thai cafes and eateries have started providing drinks and snacks made with cannabis, which has been popular among Thais. According to Running out , Anutin says this is a step toward making cannabis a cash crop.
“We are opening a wide field to allow using marijuana, however it have to be accomplished as per established guidelines and standards.”
