Legal status of marijuana in Malaysia

MEDICAL MARIJUANA IN MALAYSIA

The production, sale and possession of any form of medicinal marijuana products are illegal in Malaysia.

RECREATIONAL MARIJUANA IN MALAYSIA

The cultivation, sale, and possession of cannabis for recreational purposes are illegal in Malaysia.

Any kind of possession of cannabis is highly illegal in Malaysia. The country is known for its harsh punishment and it is highly recommended to avoid cannabis for exactly this reason. Punishment can vary from physical punishment in the shape of lashings, to serious jail time.

Because of its controversial drug policy, debate amongst advocates of medicinal marijuana in Malaysia’s medical world is done very quietly. However there are some that do acknowledge marijuana as a medicine and plea for legalization. So far the future doesn’t look bright in Malaysia and medical marijuana use remains highly illegal.
