Before today’s large chemical conflagration, inspections were undertaken by the FDA, the Office of the Narcotics Control Board, the Royal Thai Police, the major city Nonthaburi police station, the Department of Medical Sciences, the Office of Police Forensic Science, and the Royal Thai Army. Cannabis users frequently assume that Thailand’s decision to legalize cannabis marks a departure from the nation’s prior policy on the drug, which would have made Thailand the only country in the region with such lax laws on cannabis product usage. Due to the concurrent emergence of hundreds of new marijuana-related businesses, especially in Bangkok and online, the authorities are in a tricky legal situation. Leaders of the BMA claim that all extra limitations will be imposed throughout Thailand, not only in one particular region. The fact that Khao San Road is a part of a broader community that includes schools and temples was also underlined. Organizations from the public and commercial sectors, companies, and academic institutions have all been forced to share their perspectives on the evolving situation.

The laws that will govern cannabis products in the future will be codified by a bill that is now being discussed in parliament. The Bangkok Metropolitan Administration has received creative recommendations from shop owners and street sellers to transform Khao San Road into an Asian Amsterdam. A legal wasteland has developed as a result of the delay between the first announcement and the passing of laws. Thailand’s “image may suffer if Khao San Road is turned into a cannabis hotspot owing to the lack of regulation that assures all goods offered are safe and of great quality,” the deputy governor of Bangkok Jakkapan Phiewngam warned the Bangkok Post. In the next days, other psychoactive substances will also be condemned. Prior to the high-profile burn-off, cannabis, one of the old category 5 illegal substances, had been the topic of discussion for almost a month (and its many herbal variants). To calm the commotion caused by the June 9 declaration decriminalizing marijuana in Thailand, political leaders, management, and law enforcement personnel have already begun their efforts. Today and tomorrow, officials will burn almost 40 tonnes of drugs that were seized from traffickers who were apprehended while making deliveries and found during searches. Over the following two days, it’s expected that unlawful goods with a market worth of more than 25 billion baht will be destroyed. Some of the unique ingredients include 14,482 kilos of crystal meth, 23,365 kilos of methamphetamine tablets, 738 kilos of heroin, 29 kilos of opium, 4 kilos of ecstasy, and 738 kilos of heroin. Since June 9, Thai authorities have hurriedly implemented a number of additional cannabis-related regulations. They took this step because they were concerned that the long-planned liberalization of the drug may encourage anyone, including children, to use it freely.
