It's a sad day folks. All my stoner friends are moving to Thailand.
You know why?
Because Thailand is giving away ONE MILLION free pot plants to households nationwide.
Thailand wants cannabis to be grown "like a household crop," and if you ask me this is probably the best way to get it done.
Yes, it seems back in 2018 Thailand decided to make medical marijuana legal. And as the old slippery slope argument goes, they're now sending free pot plants to people's homes, and soon everybody in Thailand will be a stoner!
The new rule, which comes into force on June 9, will allow people to grow cannabis plants at home after notifying their local government, but the plants will have to be of medical grade and used exclusively for medicinal purposes. Additionally, the cannabis cannot be used for commercial purposes without further licenses…
[Health Minister Anutin Charnvirakul] noted that Thai companies registered to do so could sell cannabis products that contained less than 0.2 tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, the part of the plant responsible for getting people high.
"This will enable people and the government to generate more than 10 billion baht per year in revenue from marijuana and hemp," Anutin wrote.
"Exclusively for medicinal purposes."
Good luck with that one!
Hopefully this plan works out in Thailand's favor, and it brings in the cash that they're expecting. As for the one million households receiving free marijuana plants, I hope they can keep their heads on straight once harvest time comes around.
As for me, I'll be packing up my things now as I patiently wait for a reply from the Thai Ministry of the Interior.
And don't you worry, I can still publish articles from over there.
