ONB News reported that the holiday island of Koh Samui was awash with drugs and the local prison was crammed full of those convicted on drugs charges. 

 

They were commenting after the latest arrest of a Thai woman and her Thai husband on drugs charges. 

 

Ice or methamphetamine was found at her home in Bo Phut. 

 

ONB said that 80% of the inmates at the prison on Koh Samui (Samui District prison) were in for drugs.

 

They said that the prison was bursting at the seams as drugs cases abound on the island.

Make up your mind Samui, you want to be awash with drugs or raw sewage? Can't have it both ways.

They could deport them to Surat Thani. I don’t believe in legalization of hard drugs.

As far as I'm concerned Koh Samuii is a dump. So let all the drugs in Thailand stay there. Everything I paid for there cost half to double more than where I live in Korat. The Songthaews want a hundred baht for nine kilometers which cost here nine baht. The hospital I was dealing with there charged me 1,250 baht for the final rabies jab, which here is 700 baht.......and on and on. Beaches not very clean, water bordering on cold, and not very clean. After there I zipped down to my old stomping ground on Phuket.....water was delightful and spent an hour and a half in it on just one day. I was amused by a farang who lived in Bali and had a diving school, and he came to Koh Samuii for a vacation.....laughable.
