Thailand’s Recreational Cannabis Industry Sees Unregulated Growth Amidst Government Scrutiny

In a rapidly expanding landscape of recreational cannabis in Thailand, the government is currently drafting regulatory measures to bring order to the sector. However, there remains a degree of skepticism regarding whether the government will impose restrictions on the use of cannabis for medicinal purposes.

Today, the Asia International Cannabis Exhibition and Forum kicked off in Bangkok, featuring experts who raised questions about the prohibition of recreational cannabis and its impact on the burgeoning cannabis industry.

Since the lifting of the ban on the cultivation and sale of cannabis by the government on June 9, 2023, over 8,000 recreational cannabis distribution stores have opened nationwide, making Thailand the first Asian country to legalize cannabis. Prime Minister Srettha Thavisin had initially promised to limit cannabis use to medical purposes, but his coalition includes the Bhumjaithai party, which played a pivotal role in advocating for legalization last year.

While the future trajectory of recreational cannabis remains uncertain, the Ministry of Health has announced plans to submit a draft bill later this month to regulate the industry.
