Koh Samui awash with drugs - local prison full to bursting

Recommended Posts

As I keep saying the drug business is fueled by demand not supply. Law enforcement has failed to win the "war on drugs" but they don't care as long as the enforcement money rolls in.

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

You don't have to take them.

Shame so many places still believe locking up users is a good answer. Time to evolve, people.

 

BTW, I just came from Samui. Priciest place I've seen in Thailand except for massages. For some reason 200 baht massages are everywhere. The songtaew's do tend to try to pry as much money as they can from you. Aggressive taxis shouting at me nonstop. And I have never been propositioned so much anywhere else. To which I say "ugh."

Felt I was viewed more as a walking ATM there than anywhere else I've been yet.

Eating out costs more, lodging more. All in contrast to, say, Koh Pha Ngan right nearby.

 

The beaches were nice but overrun with tourists, development everywhere you look.

 

I had fun but seen it once is good enough for me. 

I'll revisit Ko Pha Ngan and Koh Lanta but pass on Samui next time.

I wonder what you went there for?

There are many nice quiet beaches, you just need to look for them if that is what you prefer.

They're too lazy for 'ordinary' work.

May want to consider adopting Portugal's model on drugs as the current Thai model isn't working unless you consider prisons packed with users to be a success.

Portugal's model  has been an abject failure. Do your research first.

Very easy to address demand: Publicly execute some repeat vendors and customers. Hang them in a public square and leave the bodies until they rot away. It worked wonders for Vlad the Impaler, the Japanese Shoguns,  various European city states over the centuries and ISIS.

Absolutely, but some do - young people experiment with lots of things, & addiction can & does follow.

Especially the Cannabis users, with their weird sex parties, & crazy behaviour.

 

Off with their heads I say!!
