Thailand’s health minister helped plant cannabis seedlings on Thursday as the government starts putting together plans to harvest the multibillion-dollar potential of medical marijuana. The kingdom in 2018 became the first country in Southeast Asia to legalize medical marijuana. The government has invested in the extraction, distillation, and marketing of cannabis oils for use in the health industry. Deputy prime minister Anutin Charnvirakul joined health officials planting seedlings at Thailand’s second industrial-scale marijuana greenhouse at Nong Yai, Chonburi province. Anutin Charnvirakul said the administration wanted ‘to support with sincerity patients who need to use cannabis for treatment.’
