Cannabis for personal use
What is Thailand’s policy on cannabis for personal use? Is it illegal to import a small amount for personal use? If so, is it considered a serious crime? If not, can I bring 5 grams with me?

It is illegal to import or possess drugs for personal use. The penalty for being in possession of up to 10 kilograms of cannabis is up to five years’ imprisonment and a fine of up to 50,000 baht. Also, foreigners found guilty of possession are deported after serving their prison sentences and are declared persona non grata.
