Discuss and talk about any general topic.
I saw different articles saying weed would be legalized. But you cannot trust the liberal press as they lie a lot. The big scourge is meth or shabu. And Duarte has declared full scale no mercy war on it. Applied Filipino law is not known for being nuanced or discriminating. Is there any local political advantage to being tolerant to weed in the Philippines? Many Filipinos think its worse than heroin. Copying the US is the only reason I can see. I would have my doubts about fully legal weed in the Philippines until proven conclusively otherwise.
No the Philippines congress has not passed on medical marijuana. Just as with divorce President Duterte said what he supported during campaign but despite his international reputation he is not a dictator whose word is law, he is not even a Marcos. So while you might be too small for PDEA to go after as a foreigner you would make a good example for showing that the President's position or not the Philippines is still tough on marijuana
Well that is good, cause marijuana and hard drugs like heroin or meth are not the same. Why punish weed smokers?
Not sure this counts as political, but it would be a step toward general legalization which would be a boom for them economically. Just leaving it medicinal would be too, lots of foreigners would look upon that as a plus when considering where to retire. The money being made in places where its legalized ls hard to ignore and its really just a matter of time, although I do agree that its probably going to be years before happening.
Everybody has a plan til they get punched in the mouth
A law has passed a House of Representatives vote. President Duterte has supported the proposed law while campaigning and former President GMA may give testimony of using it when she travels abroad but it is still not the law
