Patrons And Staff Of Phuket Bars, Nightclubs Subjected To Drug Tests

Recommended Posts

What an ass backwards country! Yes if you are a regular smoker and come from an enlightened country like Canada you may still have THC in your urine even after a month. It deosn't mean you were smoking here in Thailand but try explaining that to these clowns.

It is simply not their business. Period. What a man does in him home should not concern them, unless what they are saying is that the country is becoming fascist. A breath test on the road is one thing, this is quite another. Just say NO!

Unless it's illegal, then it could concern them.

What's the difference then between a breath test on the road and a drug test in a bar? Why is one ok and the other not?

"Just say NO" and see where that gets you.

Talk about invasion of privacy... bah.gif

Investigating whether someone has committed an offence is an invasion of privacy? That's weird logic. Unless, of course, you've committed an offence.

Good on them. I'm happy to be in bar with people drinking. I'm not happy to be in a bar with people drinking and also under the influence of drugs.

Sod invastion of privacy, public safety is more important.

"If you've nothing to hide, you've nothing to fear". Keep going, Nimrod. You're by far the funniest thing in this thread.

Alcohol is a drug also. It also kills more people than the popular illegal drugs.

Why not spend police man hours doing some real work and get the suppliers.

Perhaps its too much work?

How does a cop tell his boss (drug baron) that he is under arrest? -sic-

What does "-sic-" mean?

To highlight an odd word, exactly as repetaed in the original text [sic]

in your case, ignorance is bliss

The difference is quite easy to see, unless you are pissed yourself.

I disagree with the Random testing in the street (as subjected in another thread). However, IF done correctly I have no objections to testing in a night club.

I think it's a good idea, but the 'IF' part comes in with applying the correct and fair methods.

i.e. some night clubs will inevitably pay the police to avoid the tests taking place at their establishment. Ultimately this will be used as an additional method by which to extort business owners.

What is originally a good plan, through corruption eventually manifests into something more negative than the initial goal.

The fact of the matter is that Thailand already has good laws and initiatives - However, it falls flat in its face in the execution and policing of these laws.

If the Policing and application of the Law was consistent these tests wouldn't be necessary in the first place.

Work on the Police and a lot of the other issues will automatically be taken care of.

The difference IS NOT always easy to see - if YOU can spot this, perhaps a job with any number of security forces beckons for your very unique skill set

I was in a bar in Bangla a little over a week or so ago and a group of uniformed (not police) men took the majority of the bar girls in the Soi for urine tests at the toilets at the end of the Soi. There was a long queue waiting to get tested, which made many an unsuspecting farang take a second look!

Eventually around 5 ladyboys were hauled off in a police pick up truck.

As a matter of fact, none of the girls I spoke to minded that it was happening.

Yes that was actually part of one my previous jobs. But it isn't a unique skill.

The really bad part is when people use the illegal drugs and also drink alchohol.

I am all for ridding the places of illegal drugs and if people MUST use them then stay at home until the effects are gone.

If you are ok hanging out with people on yah ba etc then that's a matter for you. But I don't.
