Smokers beware! Crackdown means lighting up in public could get you a 5,000 baht fine

Recommended Posts

Probably the only decent thing the junta have ever done.

Great news.

Total BS. No science whatsoever. Second hand air? Total nonsense. The unfounded hysteria continues, from an administration so devoid of talent, it boggles the mind. I am not fond of tobacco. Personally, it has taken out countless people that I loved, and really miss. And I find the smell of smoke to be foul.

 

But, at the same time, I am not fond of big brother, and over reaching laws. If a person cannot smoke outside, where can they smoke? Is it reasonable to tell someone they can only smoke in their homes? 

 

Yes.

Smokers should not inconvenience non-smokers. On the street nor anywhere else.

If the idiots want to deliberately put poisonous smoke in their lungs, let them do it far away from those who don't.

So yes, it is reasonable. It also stops them being punched in the face or thrown off a baht bus when they refuse to put their cigarette out or get off the bus....

Yes, there were idiots who thought it was their right to be able to smoke on the songthaew.

As you know from the COVID-19 occurrence, people cannot be relied upon to do the right thing.

This way, there is no argument. Bravo! Excellent!

For the most part smokers here are considerate of the non smokers.

Not often that you come across a minibus driver who does not smoke.  Wonder how those guys will be handled.

When the borders opens and the Chinese's come visiting Thailand.

They are pretty known as heavy smokers.

Will the crackdown stand?

What does that mean? Smoking is illegal in Thailand in all public areas, on the street etc.?

It´s not illegal - but you have to wear a mask if you are smoking in public 🙂
