There  is  a  curious aspect to this  demonization  of  tobacco with  reference to  the incrremental  relaxation of attitude to   "ganga".

In a  comical sense I  can envisage  a  "skit"  where the  defense  of accusations  about  smoking  tobacco will  be " No No, I am smoking  my  approved   medicinal high  grade  indica ! "

Smoking two packs of doobies is quite a sporting event, not so with cigarettes.

Ridiculous laws are very much enforced here, and not just for show.  Tourists are required to report their address within 24hrs, or face fine,  this is enforced in Thailand. Name one Western nation where this is enforced, Third Reich does not count. Name a single Western nation where a person is forbidden to smoke in his own home! 

At this point calling Western nations a 'nanny state' is just silly, Western democracies  have much more freedom than Thailand.

 

Name a single Western nation where a person is forbidden to smoke in his own home!  Australia. Ooopsy I confused some folks.

Australia.

You are not allowed to smoke in your house in Australia? 

 

Or did you mean every tourist has to go to immigration office within 24hrs after entering Australia, in order to register with authorities? How is this even legal in Australia, how is this constitutional?

You are only forbidden to smoke if it harms another person. If you are alone you can smoke as much as you want

Is it illegal to smoke at home if you are alone?

I think the answer to that is the same as the tree falling in the forest and no one hears it...

 

 

You should be ok unless you dial 1300 and report yourself!!

What's the reasoning behind this..Stop the smoke in the homes, then move along to bigger and brighter things like Cities - Chiang Mai (burning season) or Bangkok (traffic pollution smoke)?. Thai brain!

So why are they allowed to smoke in Snooker Halls, in Chiang Mai, Lucky's, Shooters and Caesars? As usual selective policing.

So what happens when you dial 1300?

 

Do they send a SWAT team?
