The r/CannabisThailand subreddit delved into the past, asking its members: “Did you ever use cannabis in Thailand before it became legal on June 9?” The community’s candid responses were:
- Yes (88 votes): The old-school tokers, who’ve been enjoying the herb long before it was officially sanctioned.
- No (31 votes): The newcomers or the cautious ones, who waited for the green light (literally).
- Nice try, narc (76 votes): The jesters, always up for a good laugh and perhaps a bit of mischief.
Cannabis legalization in Thailand was a game-changer, but for many, the love affair with the herb started long before the laws caught up. This poll paints a picture of a community with a mix of seasoned users and those who’ve only recently discovered the joys of cannabis. And of course, there’s always a cheeky segment that can’t resist a good joke, reminding us that the cannabis community is as diverse in humor as it is in consumption habits.
In a similar poll from the r/trees subreddit, a significant portion of the global community admitted to partaking before legalization in their respective regions. This trend underscores the universal appeal of cannabis and the shared experiences of communities worldwide, regardless of legal boundaries.
The r/CannabisThailand poll results provide a snapshot of the community’s cannabis use before its official legalization in Thailand. Comparing these results with those from regions with more mature cannabis markets can offer insights into how legalization, market development, and cultural factors influence consumer behavior.
