Marijuana in Thailand – level 1

02-01-2019 15:00

Marijuana is legal in some countries. It is illegal in others. For example, it is illegal in south east Asian countries.

However, Thailand changes this. It becomes the first south east Asian country to make marijuana legal. People can sell it and buy it. They can use it as medicine.

The Thai government controls, who sells marijuana. You can use it. However, you must have a certificate.

Difficult words: legal (you can do/buy legal things), illegal (you must not do/buy illegal things), government (the ‘bosses’ of a country), certificate (a paper that says what you are allowed to do).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
