BANGKOK, 22nd September 2018 (NNT) – Invoking Article 44 of the interim constitution to legalize medical marijuana is merely an idea raised by the academic sector, says Deputy Prime Minister ACM Prajin Juntong. 

DPM Prajin who is also the Minister for Justice said on Friday that the Office of the Narcotics Control Board (ONCB) and the Ministry of Public Health are looking into the benefits of medical marijuana as well as measures to regulate marijuana agriculture, adding that the government will be able to answer more questions in October when it receives all the important information from the two agencies. 

He noted that the prime minister is eager to see a medical marijuana law pass the National Legislative Assembly. The law is now being reviewed by the assembly’s vetting committee. 

As for the proposal to legalize the medical use of marijuana by enforcing Article 44, DPM Prajin said the idea is far-fetched but the government has yet to accept or reject the proposal.

Might turn out to be a shrewd move .. Fiddle about with any possible forthcoming election to endure the right result whilst the populace is stoned and therefore couldn't give a stuff about diddling ..

it's how the pm of Canada was elected

The master of indecision is performing at his exceptional best.

It can be quoted on February 9th this year........ PM Prayut squashed allegations of the Thai government giving the green light for the cultivation of a medical Marijuana.

An unsurprising switcheroo with an election coming and where votes are important.

He would sell his soul to the devil.
