Thai government to introduce marijuana meals and travel products to attract Thai and foreign tourists

National –

The Thai Ministry of Public Health plans to introduce marijuana meals to improve local community businesses and lure Thai and foreign tourists after many parts of cannabis have been revoked from narcotic lists for medical purposes in Thailand.

Public Health Minister Anutin Charnvirakul told the Associated Press yesterday, January 20th, that the Ministry of Public Health and Ministry of Education have developed recipes and methods to produce food, cosmetics, spa, and travel products with marijuana.

It is, according to the Minister, to uplift community enterprises that are allowed to grow the plant and improve their local products to attract Thai and foreign customers after the border’s reopening.

The marijuana courses are being introduced to meet market demand, be legal, modern, safe, and beneficial to the health and economy, according to his statement. Some marijuana-based samples shown at the conference are spicy herbal soup, basil stir-fried meat, as well as dessert menus like cookies and sorbets, and beverages.

The Thai Public Health Ministry is currently offering a training curriculum, combining the wisdom of traditional medicine with modern research for accuracy and safety, to local communities nationwide.
