The Public Health Ministry is allowing cannabis buds to be sold by more than 5,000 licensed vendors nationwide next month, with vendors' and buyers' information to be sent to the International Narcotics Control Board (INCB).

Thongchai Lertwilairattanapong of the Department of Thai Traditional and Alternative Medicine (DTAM) said yesterday that those who want to sell cannabis buds, designated as a controlled herb, must first obtain permission from the department.

Dr Thongchai said the department is in the process of setting up a system to record information regarding the sale of dried cannabis buds from licensed vendors.
