Many Malaysians and Singaporeans love to go to Thailand for short vacays as it is cheap and nearby.
Recently, Thailand has partially legalised cannabis laws which allow them to grow marijuana and consume marijuana-infused food and drinks. However, smoking it in public is still against the law.
Speaking on the topic, the Minister of Home Affairs has urged Malaysians travelling to Thailand to be wary of what they eat on vacation so they do not accidentally ingest cannabis-infused food and beverages. This is because marijuana is still illegal in our country.
The minister, Dato’ Seri Hamzah bin Zainudin, said they would not be conducting drug tests for all Malaysians returning from Thailand.
However, if a person who had marijuana-infused food and is caught doing illegal acts, they will be brought to do a urine test, then they would need to explain why it is positive.
This comes after a journalist from KwongWah had asked the minister what would happen to people who accidentally ingested marijuana-infused food and beverages.
The minister reiterated that one should be careful about what one eats when on vacation in Thailand. If they feel it tastes suspicious, it’s best not to eat it.
He added that Malaysia has no right to interfere with Thailand’s affairs. However, Malaysians need to follow Malaysian law.
Even though it might be tempting to do so, it may be better for us to not consume cannabis products. What are your thoughts on this? Let us know in the comments.
