Lawsuit for removing cannabis from controlled drugs list dismissed

Lawsuit for removing cannabis from controlled drugs list dismissed

Today (Monday), Thailand’s Supreme Administrative Court upheld a lower court’s decision to dismiss a complaint from six people accusing Public Health Minister Anutin Charnvirakul and another health official of wrongdoing by removing cannabis and hemp from the list of Category 5 controlled substances.

The court upheld the lower court’s decision that the six plaintiffs, lead by Smith Srisont, were not the parties impacted by the ministerial regulation’s removal of cannabis and hemp from the list of prohibited substances.

However, following ministerial regulations from the Ministry of Public Health designating cannabis flowers are designated as a restricted traditional medicine. This means that anyone who wants to use cannabis flowers for processing, export, or commercial distribution needs a permit and must abide by a number of rules, including:

It is illegal to sell cannabis flowers or processed cannabis flowers to anyone under the age of 20, women who are pregnant or nursing, or students.

Cannabis flowers or cannabis flowers that have been processed are prohibited from being sold online, through vending machines, in public parks, zoos, or amusement parks.
