The Nakhon Phanom provincial administration on Wednesday torched 8.4 tonnes of marijuana and 67.3 tonnes of kratom leaves in a ceremony to mark the International Day Against Drug Abuse and illicit Trafficking.

 

The ceremony was held in an open field in front of the Muang district office.

 

As part of the ceremony, the officials also launched campaigns against drug abuse.

 

Officials said the burned drug were seized by various agencies in the province during the past year.

 

From October 1, 2018, to May 31, the authorities in Nakhon Phanom seized 7 million meth pills, 6 tonnes of marijuana, 29 marijuana plants, 19.3kg of crystal meth, 67kg of kratom leaves and 58 cans of glue for inhaling.

In the not too distant future we will be asking ourselves why the hell we celebrated burning that which mother earth provided us for our healthy benefit.

Hmmm....do you also include Kratom?

A rate of just over one arrest per drug case probably means only the street traffickers/users are getting nabbed.   The individuals further up the hierarchy manage to distance themselves or pay off the right people.

 

Other than a narcotics seizure here and there for the Royal Thai Police Public Relations Office, it's business as usual for the drug cartels.

Should be renamed 'International day for making being in a drug mafia a little more lucrative'...
