Thailand has one of the largest prison populations among Asian countries, with some 285,000 inmates, and more than 80 per cent of them there on drug-related charges. The Department of Corrections in Thailand has launched a drug rehabilitation programme for inmates serving minor drug-related jail sentences. The programme aims to reduce the number of prisoners in the facility. Despite the legalisation of marijuana in Thailand in June 2022, the country still has one of the strictest anti-drug laws in the world.
