Dr Cholnan said the new law is based on amendments to the first draft. It has been updated to address various public concerns or loopholes that allow people to use cannabis for recreational purposes, he added. The core of the law still defines cannabis as a controlled herb, while any extract that contains more than 0.2% tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) remains listed as a narcotic.
