Thailand ablaze with excitement over recreational weed | The Coconuts Podcast | Jan. 28, 2022

The legality of the decriminalization is about as clear as a stoner’s train of thought at this point, so we spoke at length with Coconuts Bangkok’s Chayanit “Milk” Itthipongmaetee to shed light on when it would be safe to toke up in public, whether or not tourists can partake, and where to find delectable edibles like deep-fried marijuana leaves. Tune in!
