Govt pressed for new law on marijuana and kratom

 “The Narcotics Act was drafted and first enforced in 1985, so we can see it’s not only out of date but also restricts people’s rights too much, especially considering the enormous benefits in healthcare that could come from medical cannabis and kratom,” Paisal said.

Paisal Limstit of Thammasat University’s Faculty of Law concurred that extensive scientific research had established the medicinal benefits of marijuana and kratom. Many countries had already decriminalised the clinical use of both plants, he said. Thailand was lagging behind. Paisal said, the penalties prescribed by the law are too harsh for simple possession and consumption of marijuana and kratom.  It severely hurts people’s traditional ways of life, suppresses local wisdom about traditional cures and intensifies the prison-overcrowding problem.
