A Malaysian named Lukman, a 29-year-old father of one, provided cannabis oil to patients who were suffering from ailments that were difficult to treat with legal medicines. Lukman did not profit from this, and would provide cannabis oil for free to patients who could not afford it.
However he has been sentenced to death for his efforts, but thanks to the public outrage over the death penalty handed to him, the government is currently “looking” to amend the relevant laws to overturn the death sentence. Even our Prime Minister has said the verdict should be reviewed.
If it actually becomes legalised, Malaysia will be the first country in SEA to allow medical marijuana. How’s that for progress?

Our predictions have come true and the Billion Dollar Whale book will now become a movie. This movie will be produced by Crazy Rich Asians producer Ivanhoe Pictures. However it’s pretty ironic as it will also involve Malaysia’s very own Michelle Yeoh’s Mythical Films in producing the film.
Michelle Yeoh was a staunch supporter of ex-prime minister Najib Razak and the former stalwart’s going to make a movie about the scandal? Tables do turn.

Snapchat—the “original” version of your Instagram Stories—has been testing a new visual search tool and is partnering with one one the largest e-commerce companies, Amazon (who has still not yet made their services available here).
The new feature will make it possible to take a picture of a product or barcode with the Snapchat camera, then press and hold on the camera screen to launch an Amazon product page to learn more and make a purchase. But who still uses Snapchat nowadays?

The Light Rail Transit (LRT) service in the Klang Valley was hit by technical glitches again, however this time not once, but twice within 12 hours on Tuesday (Sept 25)!
The worst part is that it happened during peak hours, and some commuters faced delays with many waiting for up to an hour for only one train to arrive. Is our very own RapidKL looking to challenge our Singaporean neighbours SMRT to see who breakdowns more?

Yet again another U-Turn from our government as our Finance Minister Lim Guan Eng has disclosed that more items are exempted from the SST.
Mobile prepaid services provided to Malaysians, peanuts, imported completely knocked down components for locally-assembled vehicles, salted, dried and preserved fish, and seafood under the crustacean and mollusc HS (Harmonised System) code are included in this list. Additionally also cigarette sales, tissue paper and some other boring stuff.
