Thailand fresh update is here. As said in Forbes, and I believe it’s already anywhere else said, that Thailand government shows again very serious intentions toward medical marijuana market, and they are doing fast! Thai Officials already promised few months ago, that the whole Thailand shall gain from legalization, now it is surprisingly coming true. Recently the Minister of Health of Thailand stressed twice in a speach, that “We are in the process of changing laws to allow the medical use of marijuana freely. We have high confidence that marijuana will be among the major agricultural products for Thai households. We are speeding up the law changes.” (due to Forbes)
The Thai Weed
Sweet! I’m checking tickets to Thailand. I ever loved this country from my first visit, and now they are going to trade weed freely. Of course, I think, the households may obviously lack in growing technology, they could hardly hold a very accurate thc limitation. I think, we are having beautiful Thai weed all around for the next couple of seasons hopefully. Don’t be much in a rush, no deadlines set yet, but they speed up, speed up, speed up. Check where the situation is now before going to Thailand if weed is the purpose, don’t go tomorrow morning asking marijuana in airport – still the bad plan.
According to Asia Times, Maejo University researchers planted 12,000 new medical marijuana seedlings in northern Thailand’s Chiang Mai, while government’s Department of Medical Service officials have provided provided the seedlings and are now supervising the grow.
Officials expect the plants will produce medical marijuana within six months, Forbes says.

Longterm Thailand Visa
Here is the hint for staying in Thailand longer: In Thailand many backpackers stay for long to try their fortune. Freelancers, online workers, like writers, designers, developers and stuff. If anyone meets a coin miner, ask him how’s Thailand in his field, we can add coin miners to the list )) It may be something changed, but as for my last check it was always extremely easy to have an education visa in Thailand. You apply to one of Thai language schools, which are numerous in the country and in Bangkok specifically, and I think it’s even fun to learn Thai a little, and by such they allow you to stay in the country for few months while the course lasts, there is some minimal requirement for a visa-run, like you need to make it once in a while but not often (requires a double-check). Having this permit you’ll be visiting the immigration office monthly or bimonthly, they may ask some “how are you” in Thai to see that you really study it, even if badly. They also perform random checks in class that you really attend it. Pretty much a system like we all have had in school, hahaha. And the good news that instead of Thai language you can alternatively apply to an English course, or some Thai Food Cooking course, and still you are having the same educational stay permission. I think you can do either in your own country, or right from the country. All works. Tested. Very easy.
