Thai government plans to ban recreational cannabis.

On Feb 6, Public Health Minister Cholnan Srikaew said the new Bill, which bans the recreational use of cannabis, will be proposed at the Cabinet meeting next week.

“The new Bill will be amended from the existing one to only allow the use of cannabis for health and medicinal purposes,” he told reporters. “The use for fun is considered wrong.”
There was fresh pressure from the public earlier in February after attendees of British rock band Coldplay’s shows in Bangkok complained on social media, saying “the entire concert smelled like marijuana”. AFP
