On Dec. 25, 2018, Thailand became the first Southeast Asian country to legalize medical marijuana. The military-appointed National Legislative Assembly approved medical marijuana in a vote of 166-0, while 13 members did not vote. The law will legalize production, import, export, possession, and use of medical marijuana.
