Thailand Plans Inaugural “World Ganja Festival” for 2020
The first-of-its-kind event will bring together cannabis experts and advocates from China, Japan, America, Thailand, and more, covering technology, academics, and business.

After years of strict cannabis prohibition, Thailand legalized medical marijuana earlier this year, and now, the Southeast Asian nation is looking to get in on the global market. And with widespread expansion in mind, what better way to spread the word than with a worldwide weed conference? 

Next year, the Association of Researchers of Thailand (ART) will throw the inaugural “World Ganja Festival” on a 40 acre plot in Nakhon Phanom province. According to Thai news outlet Coconuts, the event will bring together cannabis businesses and experts from a number of Asian and Western countries to hopefully inspire a global exchange of knowledge.
