Thai Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha used medical cannabis oil at an event designed to promote the government’s new online marijuana portal.
It provides Thais with information on how to cultivate cannabis, the medical research conducted on it, the legal status of marijuana.
The Prime Minister got involved in the action by sampling a small amount of oil as the news cameras rolled at the high-profile event.
His outgoing military junta legalized medical cannabis in what it called a “New Year’s gift” to the people at the end of December 2018.
Last month, the Southeast Asian nation unveiled its first dedicated medical cannabis clinic, and a further 31 are poised to open soon.
