Frenchwoman deported for vaping

None of that explains the presumably ridiculous decision to process a tourist visitor for detention and deportation--after her court case was entirely resolved--based on an exceedingly minor offense.

 

FB, which the Thai police love to love, is full of Thais vaping to their heart's content before the whole world, and those folks aren't getting tracked down and arrested.

 

Individual vaping, it seems, is one of those offenses here that the police rarely decide to enforce, but when they do, it usually seems it's with the simple intent to extort or punish.

 

Well if you compare her attitude - and my observation above, I would guess one is likely to encourage deportation - and it ain't mine

Hopefully Thailand will lift the ban on E-cigs after they find a way to tax them properly.

 

I've been patiently waiting for them to lift the ban on shisha/turkish tobacco as well, but all I've ended up with are a bunch of places that are able to serve it in plain sight, presumably because of a favourable arrangement with local authorities. It's not perfect, but I'll take it in the absence of anything better!

What i'd like to hear about next: 

A planeload of frenchies each have a kid with them - complete with  one of those toy lookalike e-cigs that are actually toy whistles. 

 

Gem 1: the look of despair on the officers at the frontline

Gem 2: the whistles sounding like female evil spirits - they are nastier than the male ones I hear!

Did she pass all other norms for a police check? Namely:-

Helmet? DL? Lights? Sober? Speed/Drive on the left/Not more than 2 on the bike?

Just curious.

PHUKET:-- Karon police have responded to complaints made by a French tourist who was apprehended in Karon for possession of an e-cigarette.
 
Cecilia Cornu, 31, was in Phuket for a family holiday in January and was caught by Karon police holding an e-cigarette on Jan 30 whilst on a scooter with her fiancée as her parents and brother followed behind.
 
Cornu claims she was stopped by four police officers who snatched the e-cigarette and demanded B40,000, which she refused to pay.

I hope for your sake that the places where you smoke keep paying their bribes to the mafia, as it could easily become very expensive for you (40.000 or deportation).
