A British tourist was arrested in Chiang Mai's Kamphaeng district on Wednesday night for allegedly abusing crystal meth and overstaying his visa.
 

Police arrested Benjamin John Soulsby, 31, at his rented house in a housing estate in Tambon Tonpao following a tip from the house owner that his tenant appeared to be high on drugs.

 

Police found 0.95 grams of crystal meth in the house and a device for using the drug. Police suspected he flushed some drug down the toilet when they arrived.

 

Pol Col Pallop Siriyakul-na-Ayutthaya, deputy commander of the Immigration Police Division 5, said Soulsby entered Thailand on September last year and his visa expired on October 8, last year.

He was abusing ice, what would be the correct way to use it?

Perhaps he was smoking it (if that's what you do with this drug) with one of those illegal vapor thingies.

There are enough local native drug addicts in Thailand, so obviously the country really does not need any more imported from falang land !

 

Wish the lad a safe journey back home for rehab,  paid with the taxpayers money naturally.

These things do have medical uses, when it was invented it was a treatment for narcolepsy & asthma. In WWII it was then used to keep soldiers awake. 

 

Abuse is any abnormal use, i.e. for recreation.
