Thailand legalizes consumption of cannabis processed food

Thailand on Thursday legalized the cultivation and consumption of hemp for processed food, becoming the first country in Asia to legalize the consumption of cannabis in a move aimed at boosting agriculture and tourism. Thailand has strict restrictions on the amount of cannabis in processed foods, and direct smoking of cannabis remains illegal. Buyers lined up in front of stores selling processed cannabis edibles to welcome the latest policy. Thailand legalized medical marijuana in 2018, and the government now plans to use cannabis as a cash crop to encourage farmers to grow. But the government limits the amount of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the active ingredient in cannabis, in processed foods to 0.2 percent, a level so low that consumers need to consume a lot of THC to get excited.
