Thailand's de facto legalization of marijuana last year has brought a wave of tourists from around Asia intrigued by the lure of the allure of the drug. However, it's not just the consumption of marijuana that has attracted attention. An unexpected trend has emerged in the form of weed leaf drawings, captivating tourists with their artistic appeal.
These underappreciated plants attract a "hungry throng" of beneficial insects. They're not bad to look at, either. Weed leaf drawings have found their way into the hearts of tourists, who are fascinated by the intricate designs and vibrant colors. These drawings have become a popular souvenir and a way for tourists to express their support for the newly legalized marijuana scene in Thailand.
New York marijuana users have found Connecticut dispensaries not far from the state line as New York's rollout of adult-use pot shops limps. Similarly, tourists visiting Thailand from neighboring Asian countries where marijuana is outlawed have found the allure of weed leaf drawings as a way to express their interest in the drug without violating local laws.
