Mr. Somchai said today that the discussion will also be an occasion for public consultation to allow all related parties to share their ideas, which will be useful for the amendment of the Drug Act so that marijuana can be legally used to treat illnesses.

He added that the seminar will look into relevant research already completed in Thailand and other countries, particularly that involved in establishing the medical benefits of marijuana and the regulatory work to control this alternative treatment.
