The Office of the Narcotics Control Board (ONCB) is transferring the confiscated marijuana to the Department of Thai Traditional, Alternative Medicine and the Department of Medical Sciences to process.

The haul will turn into 600,000 bottles of cannabis oil extract, the ONCB director said, adding that this move is not violating any convention on narcotics.
Niyom Termsrisuk, ONCB secretary-general, transferred the cannabis after gaining approval from Food and Drug Administration. He said the two departments will process the drug using traditional methods.
