On the heels of Thailand decriminalising cannabis effective 9th June 2022, I sat down with one of Thailand’s cannabis industry insiders, John Williams. We talked about the historical roots of weed here and across South East Asia. We discussed the current paradigm shift, implications, and how it is being received by the national psyche.
