South Korea, WOW

This is a huge victory for the Asian countries, who’ve notoriously had the strictest drug policies in the world. Way to go!

Thanks for sharing that, @MK3_Pharms . Even the hard-line official who was interviewed for this article conceded that, if enforced, the law would be applied on a case-by-case basis and perhaps judges would be easier on medical cases. Now the judges have the ability to be more lenient.

Despite the hard line issued by Yoon, Lee told the newspaper judges would be more likely to deliberate each case on an individual basis, possibly being more lenient in cases in which medicinal cannabis was involved.”

It seems the new medical cannabis law in South Korea will be among the strictest in the world, but it’s definitely a big step forward for the whole Asian continent.

I don’t believe the Science Symposium was filmed, but if anyone does have even a grainy video shot on an old flip phone, I’d also be interested in seeing the footage. I am sorry you couldn’t make it!

did you read the actual news i posted?
SK is no different then NK. SK claims to be a free society right? so why do they demand citizens out of country to follow coumtry laws. that soumds just like NK. please check your news sources before posting fake news. if ypu believe SK wont execute citozens for smoking pot your deluded.

I respect Marijuana Business Daily as a valid news source, and I don’t believe that I commented one way or another about what SK law enforcement will do to citizens caught smoking pot. Nor do I believe I’m deluded. You can approach the journalist yourself (article is posted), and the one thing that I do believe is that we should all show respect to one another in this online community. Let’s all remember why we’re here, to support one another!
