Police in the southern Thai province of Naratiwas announced arrests and seizures in two large cases.

 

In the first a lorry load of crystal meth or ice was intercepted in the Moonoh police district after a tip off that there was a delivery to Sungei Kolok on the border. 

 

Khamron, 35, and Somchai, 34, were caught in possession of 1,400 kilograms of "ice"  that Daily News said was worth a billion baht.

 

They intended to give it to a man called "Wae" in the border town. 

 

In the second case a heroin distribution network in the Sungei Kolok area was busted.

 

A man called Wanaslan and six cohorts were arrested and 6.3 kilos of heroin was taken into evidence. 

 

The gang said they were working for a foreign investor. 

 

Houses and land, nine motor vehicles and four motorcycles all worth 20 million baht were seized in connection with this case.

That's a lot more than 1,400 kilos of ice and 6.3 kilos of heroin.

 

I'm really glad that the 'stuff' is off the streets, but Daily News didn't need to spice up the article with a false photo. (That's probably from when they were informing the public about the big drugs bonfire)

Just imagine if this is caught how much is not caught. Seems like there are countless people using. 

 

Yet unlike what people think there are not that many addicts out on the streets. Seems like a lot are holding a job or whatever and using.

Well maybe in Thailand come to Australia, drugs are more common in traffic accidents

then alcohol and most murders and break ins and assaults are caused by drugs.

I don't know what relation there is in Thailand. Alcohol is a big problem in traffic in Thailand. No idea about other drugs. 

 

As for break ins and assualts I would not know. But given the huge amounts consumed if it was really super bad we would have seen far more in the news. So a large part of the people seem to have a normal life when using drugs. Same like with alcohol.

 

Anyone driving with drugs or alcohol should be tossed in jail for a long time. Selfish bastards. I have no problem with drug use (alcohol included) but the moment someone bothers others while high or drunk they should be treated the same and put in jail if there is enough cause.

 

I don't feel that drug use as such should be a crime as long as they don't operate a vehicle or commit crimes.
