Postcards from Thailand #1: My Acti-Weed Report Card: 10 Feb 2023

Commuting the 750km each way from Samui to Bangkok overnight Friday and back again on a Sunday night is getting tough.

Last night, we came back by bus. A total of 14 arse numbing hours by boat and bus with just one stop for food at a service area which is free and in addition to the bottle of juice and water and a packet of biscuits they give you on the bus.

At the service area tonight though, you had the option of buying a weed infused brownie!

Our new, liberal weed policies mean that stands like this are becoming more and more common in shops everywhere.

No, I didn't try them, at 300baht ($10 USD, £8 GBP) I thought they were a bit pricey and although no doubt helping me to sleep, would probably have made a full days teaching today be a bit of a laid back struggle!

There was a sign explaining how much to eat depending on your level of experience!

Even in 7/11 there are all sorts of infused edible goodies with signs to warn that they cannot be sold to under 20's and shouldn't be eaten by pregnant women (are there any other kind?!) but it's great to see such a relaxed attitude.

The funny thing is, you can only buy alcohol here between 12 and 3 and 5 and 12 but weed can be bought 24/7. That's very much like UK pub opening hours back in the 80s.

That's all for today. Two solid days of cases in Bangkok then back to Samui and our new clinic and the new cases we've already picked up down there.

No rest for the wicked they say!

I wish everyone a wonderful, happy and healthy weekend!
