Cannabis laws in Thailand
There is a long and complicated history of cannabis use in Thailand. It used to be used for traditional medicine centuries ago, it then became very illegal, and nowadays it is very common and sold out into the open. Cannabis is illegal in Thailand, still, but in reality there are many people smoking or eating edibles all of the time and in public. In theory, you can get into a lot of trouble, but in practice you will likely not get into trouble, or you will have to pay a bribe to the cops.
Cannabis is illegal in Thailand, but they are more concerned with growing their tourism industry, that they are with catching tourists with joints in their pockets. Don’t smoke in public, or in crowded places and you should be fine.
