  • South China Morning Post published this video item, entitled “Thailand hospital introduces cannabis into their restaurant food menu” – below is their description.

    Thailand’s Chao Phraya Abhaibhubejhr Hospital has begun serving food dishes that contain small amounts of cannabis. This is said to mark a return to Thailand’s culinary past, where the use of the plant in food has historically been part of their culture.

    The drug had long been used in traditional Thai medicine and cooking, but the possession, sale and use of cannabis was criminalised in 1934. Last month, the country removed the plant from its narcotics list.
