Samui police find Briton a little too relaxed

By The Nation

 

A British businessman’s bedtime snack of marijuana-laced tom yam kung landed him in police custody on Koh Samui on Wednesday morning.
 

Gary Coughlan, 58, who’s involved in property development, was apprehended at a police checkpoint in Tambon Na Muang when he appeared to be under the influence of a narcotic. 

 

Officers began searching his car for drugs, only to be allegedly told he’d sprinkled ganja obtained from a Thai friend into a batch of spicy soup he’d prepared days earlier as a sleep aid.

 

Coughlan was given a urine test, which allegedly indicated 50 nanograms of marijuana per millilitres.

 

He was charged with using an illegal substance.

Did the same many years ago in the UK, when I added weed to the chilli con carne I was cooking, then invited friends round for an after-pub lunch...........as I recall it was a great afternoon, the sun was shining, a friend was playing his guitar and a couple were "at it" on the lawn.

 

Well that's as my memory recalls it!!

must have been a different kind of weed,
nothing  erratic in your behavior.

Sounds like a great afternoon 🙂

Sounds like BS to me. More like he forgot to pay the cops tea money rather than they noticed him acting strangely.

Dont know if helping with sleep is a medical use , maybe for insomniacs like myself if so i could use the help .

I suffered for months until i worked out exactly what was causing the sleepless nights.

 

Avoid eating food with MSG (nearly everything in Thailand). Request no MSG to be used. Obviously this doesn't apply to street vendors as their soups are already mixed with this insomniac drug.

Happy kipping!
