Drug free Full Moon Party better for the image of Thailand

Channel 7 news reported on the Full Moon Party held at Had Rin beach in Koh Phangan earlier this week. 
 
They reported that since the local district chief had ordered a crackdown on drug taking at the monthly party the image of Thailand had improved. 
 
The media reported that mostly foreign tourists and Thai tourists were having a great time with many decked out  in luminous paint dancing the night away.
 
Yes, many were drunk but it was by and large good-natured and safe.
 
Channel 7 said that safety was a priority at the party. Party goers  were checked on arrival and exit for passports and ID cards.
 
Shops were checked for selling fake booze, overcharging and the distribution of drugs. 
 
Since the Koh Phangan district chief had ordered "No Drugs" it was better for all, they said.

Yes, it´s much better for the image. I agree on that. The probelm, though, is that the party is popular because of the drugs. 

In short, that means they are creating just another automatically fading image.

Many moons ago I attended my one and only party down there. In the 20 metre space between two male and female toilet buildings was a pickup full of dealers who'd jump off the back to approach men as they went to use the facilities. Closer to the female building was a pickup full ogfBIB who did... Well, absolutely nothing.

these parties are now mainly  kids, the vast majority are now only drinking anway.  The small % on the back bar doing omelettes and shakes are lost in the  numbers.   Cant see how 20,000 drunk kids is better than  5000 tripped out hippies.

The probability of Thailand becoming drug-free is equivalent to the probability of Thailand becoming prostitution-free.

In short, never going to happen.
