    The Bhumjaithai party is out of Buriram.:D:D

    BANGKOK — While no one knows when the next election will be held, political parties have begun testing their messages in advance of the next poll.

    The Bhumjaithai Party unveiled a policy platform Thursday meant to appeal to its heartland in the nation’s east while a Pheu Thai splinter party began marketing its ideas in Bangkok.

    Announced in Buriram province, the home of its former influential leader, Bhumjaithai said it would support farmers growing up to six marijuana plants and set up a fund to facilitate a profit-sharing program for rice farmers.

    The party, which has expressed a willingness to work with the military government, is led by Anuthin Charnwirakul. Anuthin expressed his readiness Thursday to serve as prime minister if elected.

    The party said farmers and others in the industry could elect representatives to manage the rice fund to improve profit-sharing, said party sec-gen Saksiam Chidchob, the younger brother of former leader Newin Chidchob, who has withdrawn from politics.

    The fund would be tasked with finding cheap loans for farmers, issuing insurance to their crops, determining export quotas and ensuring fair profits. A potential boon to farmers that may not sit well with other players in the industry, Saksiam said the scheme would see farmers get 75 percent of the profits with the rest going to mill operators, exporters and rice sack producers.

    Also provocative is a party policy allowing farmers to legally grow and sell up to six marijuana plants for medical purposes. The secretary general said that with marijuana for medical purposes becoming legal, Thailand can learn from California, which has become the biggest legal marijuana market in the world.

    He said one marijuana plant can yield up to 1 kilogram of buds per year worth about 70,000 baht.

    ‘Improving OTOP with technology and innovation,’ says a sign promoting the Thai Raksa Chart Party that recently went up in Bangkok.
    For palm oil producers, the party will support construction of power plants that utilize it to produce electricity. It also vowed to pass laws promoting biofuels from more diverse agricultural sources.

    In education, the party said it will encourage learning online via smartphones. “If brothers and sisters can watch films, listen to music online with their smartphones, why can’t brothers and sisters learn on smartphones?” Saksiam said.

    As for healthcare, the party said it would support better pay for community health volunteers and increase use of telemedicine to offer diagnoses and care without requiring travel to often inundated town and district hospitals.

    Saksiam said over the past four decades, public health volunteers, also known as local doctors, have proven to be reliable but they need better compensation and support. He suggested a monthly compensation for public health volunteers ranging form 2,500 to 10,000 baht per month.

    In Bangkok, the Thai Raksa Chart Party, which broke off from the Pheu Thai Party powerhouse of Thaksin Shinawatra, put up dozens of LCD campaign spots around the capital, including at the Victory Monument.

    The ads present the party as heir to the now defunct Thai Rak Thai Party both in its uncannily similar party logo and slogan, “New Thinking. Do Anew. Dare to Change.” “New Thinking. Do Again” was once a slogan of Thai Rak Thai, a Pheu Thai predecessor that was dissolved by the courts following the 2006 coup that ousted Thaksin.

    In a video released Thursday, party leader Preechapol Pongpanich criticized the military dictatorship as unaccountable and blamed it for the nation’s economic underperformance.

    “Dictatorship often comes with a system called ‘lack of scrutiny,’ the party leader said.

    Thailand’s New Medical Marijuana laws described in detail, how Foreigners fit in.

    "People in rural areas constitute the largest pool of voters eligible to form licensed agricultural groups to cultivate hundreds of acres of the new economic crop. Some of these folks will also be able to earn extra income by obtaining licenses to prescribe medical marijuana as Thai traditional medicine practitioners and village healers."

    IF and its an IF this does happen it looks to me that they want to do the set up in Issan and the Department of Agriculture and the Ministry of Public Health. Each amphora in Thailand has an office of the Department of Livestock and Development and Department of Agriculture. The DLD and DA are in the same building directly across from the Kap Choeng Government Hospital. The MH is out of your local hospital. CRU is directly controlled and overseen by the local DLD. SWMBO is directly involved with both and we also have the
    Surin Provincial Border Area Development Center this is where the hilo pad is where the princes will land on the 29. The development center is the DA growing and test section and yes my boss in thick with them. She just spent three days signing up for mushrooms through them. ME EYES and EARS are tuned in.:D:D:yum::yum:
