Thailand has officially approved medical cannabis, showcasing a major shift in attitude in the Southeast Asian nation.

After the country’s parliament voted to amend the Narcotic Act of 1979, the legislation will officially go into law when it is published in the government gazette.

Chairman of the drafting committee, Somchai Sawangkan referred to it as a “New Year’s gift from the National Legislative Assembly.”

Further details have yet to be released, however patients will be able to carry specified amounts if they have a prescription or recognized certificates, and licenses for production and sale will be strictly controlled.

South East Asia has some of the world’s toughest drug penalties, making this an even more significant move, as it may showcase that the growing acceptance of cannabis could be hitting a region of almost 2 billion people.
