The following is our weekly feature in which we ask our readers a news topical question and get their insight and opinions. We then share their feedback a week later and pick a variety of diverse and interesting responses.

This week, we want to ask:

Do YOU support cannabis decriminalization in Thailand?

Some context around this question:

Cannabis has been one of the hottest topics in Thailand for a month now since the plant was decriminalized on June 9th. It has led to many takes and diverse opinions in the media. Now, we want to hear YOUR opinion. Do you support it? Are you against it? What rules should be in place? Should people be allowed to smoke at bars or clubs? Should recreational zones be created or should it stay strictly medical? Should stricter rules be implemented for selling or buying cannabis?

We look forward to hearing from you! Tell us on our social media channels, in the comments below, or if you prefer your comment to be private mail us at We will publish the results and select a variety of diverse responses early next week, as always!
