Do you want to take advantage of Thailand’s new decriminalized cannabis laws and smoke some marijuana in court? You may need to alter your plans.

Mr. Jeerapat Panthavee, Secretary-General of the Office of the Court of Justice, signed an order today, July 12th, 2022, prohibiting the use of cannabis products on court property throughout the country, including for Ministry of Justice employees. This includes a prohibition on cannabis-infused food and beverages in Thai courts.

This adds to a growing list of places like army bases, police stations, schools, government offices, and some other official places that have banned the recently decriminalized cannabis from their workplaces and for their employees, unless a documented medical reason was provided.
