    PEOPLE in parts of the North will be able to start farming hemp – legally – from next year.

    “The Cabinet has already approved hemp as an economic plant,” Sirinya Sittichai, secretary-general of the Narcotics Control Board, said yesterday.

    “The Thailand Tobacco Monopoly will buy the harvest from growers.”

    The plantation areas are 15 districts in six provinces – Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai, Nan, Phetchabun, Mae Hong Son and Tak.

    The NCB has been adjusting the legal status formerly contraband hemp, marijuana, kratom (Mitragyna speciosa) and methamphetamine.

    These four substances have long seen as illicit drugs in Thailand, but authorities have decided to decriminalise them to a certain extent because they can be used in the health and other industries.
