Future Thailand PM at odds with hashish sellers and authorities over drug regulation reform

Cannabis sellers and a number of other governmental departments have clashed with future Prime Minister, Pita Limcharoenrat, and his Move Forward Party (MFP) over the reclassification of hashish and the reversal of the drug laws. The sellers are demanding clear clarification from the concerned departments on this problem.
On Monday, May 22, the MFP, led by Pita, and leaders of the coalition events signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) that outlined their collective targets in preparation for a government. The MOU includes 23 missions, and considered one of them is to reclassify cannabis as a managed substance.
This mission drew important criticism from hashish sellers and related government departments. Yesterday, the spokesperson from the Parliamentary Commission that created the Hemp and Cannabis Act, Panthep Puapongphan, expressed his complete disagreement with the MFP’s stance. Panthep said…
“By instantly reclassifying hashish as a narcotic, many sufferers who use it for medicinal purposes will doubtlessly face authorized repercussions. Some sufferers rely on hashish and not using a doctor’s prescription. Perhaps Pita fails to grasp this point. Addiction to cannabis is harder than dependancy to alcohol and cigarettes. MFP helps a progressive alcohol bill instead of cannabis that has more benefits.”
The leader of Writing Thailand’s Cannabis Future, Prasitchai Noonuan, revealed that he and different supporters disagreed with the idea and would protest the move. Prasitchai added that he would cease if the MFP and Pita could answer why hashish is worse than alcohol and cigarettes and the way the progressive alcohol invoice will affect the community.
In less than in Pattaya, Nut Gan @Pattaya, Preeda Chaiyo, revealed throughout an interview with KhaoSod that the entrepreneurs don’t fully agree with the present discussions regarding cannabis, as they see it as an economic crop with extra advantages than drawbacks. However, the store homeowners respect the rules and are wanting forward to the government’s clear stance on the matter..
