Law Enforcement: Law enforcement generally corrupt, can be bought off for around 20,000B if you run into trouble, such as, possession, smoking in public, and getting narc’d out.
Another reporter added: “You definitely DO NOT want to get caught with weed in Thailand. The cops love to give you a hard time, and like most Thais, they love the smell of Farang money.”

Cannabis in Thailand? Yes its true and no it won’t get you high. At least the legal one in the cafes 😉 Thailand legalized cannabis for medical usage in 2019. These days every part of the plant besides the seeds, flowers, and buds are legal. The medical industry is using cannabis extracts for medical usage and recently cannabis cafes are opening up in the country. In Phuket I know of at least three.
This cafe I’ve seen near my house before. Phuket town has loads of quite nice and stylish cafes. Recently, they’ve started selling products made with cannabis. Seems like a bit of a marketing ploy but I wish them lots of luck and they were nice enough to let me take some photos.
This could be the first step to full legalization. The economy surely needs some help as do the farmers. There is a long tradition of ganga in Thailand and in the past some of the best quality came (and still does apparently) come from Thailand known as Thai stick.
Let’s hope full legalization is coming soon so people can grow and provide for their families and the consumers can enjoy in peace. As well, full legalization will eliminate the mafia element currently controlling the drug market.

“The conditions the patient is experiencing must be one of those recognised by the Ministry of Health as eligible for medical marijuana treatment,” Dr Busaya said.

“Private hospitals including Bangkok Hospital Phuket, Bangkok Hospital Siriroj and Mission Hospital are also not allowed. It is not legally available from them to use,” he added.
