Smiling couple arrested for ganja possession in Prachuab Khiri Khan

Recommended Posts

What plonkers. I have no issue with them smoking a little hash but you really do need to have some respect when you are busted. Most police all over the world are fairly sympathetic towards hash smokers and tend to only bust people being a little too obvious. In my experience (from days gone by) if you were polite, compliant and apologetic then a firm telling off and a warning was all you got. I can't imagine what could have happened to me had I been as cocky as these 2 prats!

Don't mean to be picky, but it's weed not hash. Big difference.

The "white powder" they were adding to joints was probably just dry-sifted resin glands from the cannabis they grew.

It's quite common to do because it's the only pharmacologically active part of the plant. The rest is just plant material which produce tars and other unhealthy by-products when burned.

Some experts say that smoking the whole but rather than just the resin is like eating a pizza and consuming the box too.

If you smoke a lot, like two of my friends who have chronic back pain due to spinal cord injuries, you can get accustomed to it and consume more than you used to.

One has a license to produce in Canada and smokes 30+ grams a day. His lung function was tested in the 80 percentile and he never looks like the "typical" stoner. No slurred speech, memory lapses etc. The other is a PhD, smokes during breaks at work and has a better memory than me and probably the majority of people here who don't smoke.

The worst side effect of cannabis is the laws against it. It's immoral IMO to put people in a cage for smoking a harmless herb.

5k under the table, the "evidence" goes "up in smoke" and the happy couple leave slightly poorer (and no smarter).

I've known a lot of hard-core weed smokers over the years (never touch drugs myself, but I'm often on best terms with Jack Daniels, but sometimes little Bailey's or Kaluha makes a nice change).

Friends back in Canada years ago used to devote years to plant cultivation, hybrids, splicing, etc to try and produce the highest possible THC content they could. Their pot made ever other kind of pot look like skunk weed.

Surprise, surprise. It just wasn't enough though, was it ? Some of them would smoke pot as often as I smoked cigarettes (back when I was still smoking). Smoking 4 joints between waking up and getting to the job site 90 minutes later was not uncommon. Meanwhile, weekend parties ? Seems even that hi-grade weed just wouldn't give enough of a buzz. But hey, add a little "something" to it (usually in a white powder form) and then convince people that super buzz was from the weed ?

That's when I stopped hanging out with that crowd.

If they had to add PCP or other drugs to their high-grade weed, and then get other people smoking it (without knowing what they were smoking), then something was wrong. Great way to loosen someone's "inhibitions" though. Maybe get them to try something "else" that'll be sure to give them the same kind of high. And once they're stoned, well, who knows........

I also know people that just smoke regular pot - basically whatever they can get their hands on. And after years and years, they too smoke it as often as most people smoke cigarettes. It's not hard to see the drooping eyes, slurred speech and mental lapses.

I'm sure it's nothing to do with heavy pot smoking though, because everyone keeps saying how wonderful it is.

But just like alcohol - in moderation it's not that bad. But abuse it and consume large quantities all the time and you'll end up just as screwed up as if you did the same thing with pot.

What a load of crap, it would be nigh impossible to smoke 30 grams in a day. Have been smoking ganja for over 25 years, still manage to keep a good job and my brain is in ok condition.

All these alcoholic sex fiends preaching on the dangers of cannabis, just go back in your box and stop judging everyone. Who the <deleted> do you think you are. Probably the same ppl illegally buying valium and viagra ? Still this is TV and their is plenty of crap written here.

25yrs? always good to hear from a nozzer LOL

Clearly the pot smoking has caused some brain damage. Right couple of fools.

Smoking weed causes brain damage now does it? I have no words... Sheer ignorance again, people claiming things like, oh they look so out of it, they must be on ecstasy or ketamine as well' How about maybe they are just making light of the situation and good for them, such a small amount of a harmless substance. This couple made my day, and no they will not be facing jail time, trust me on that one.

Read some research, bud. Use if cannabis in formative tears, such as teens can affect the development of the Brian.

I wouldn't say there's a big difference, they both contain the same active substance, THC.

Hash is just weed with all the harmful bits removed. You just need to use less.

It's like whiskey and wine coolers, a shot of whiskey contains the same amount of alcohol as a glass of wine cooler, but without all the extra sugar.

People who say hash or extracts is worse than smoking weed have it backwards, it's healthier.

You don't chug glasses of whiskey like beer, you don't take 600 mg ibuprofen like they are 200 mg tablets or eat as many 1000mg vitamin C as you would 100mg tablets. Same with hash, you use less.

Oh no! Is that even enough for 1 joint? That is not going to make uncle Pfizer & aunty Dupont very happy....you are suppose to take their pills! Just because a divine and non-toxic plant that has been utilized for thousands of years exist doesn't mean you are allowed to medicate with it unless you have the permission of suited, corporate gangsters. Welcome to the NWO.

"We'll wipe the smile off your faces, my pretties, and your little dogs too." HA! Lot a controlling authoritarian types pipe up (so to speak) on this blog - amazing what a little pot talk will do to otherwise seemingly harmless adult farang, trolled once again by the devil weed. - Fearful people, but ya wouldn't think it.

Maybe another charge 'lumped in' Possession of the stuff at the Police Station. In the UK the suspect would have possibly downed it.

Anyway I thought this was the land of the inane stupid smile.

Mr toad .. i take it you did not drink in your teen years ?

I got an article here that shows that that is far more damaging for the brain at those years. Its foolish that people still dont understand that alcohol is far damaging as weed. That is why alcohol is classified a hard drug and weed a soft drug.

Adolescence is a unique period in neurodevelopment. Alcohol and marijuana use are common. Recent research has indicated that adolescent substance users show abnormalities on measures of brain functioning, which is linked to changes in neurocognition over time. Abnormalities have been seen in brain structure volume, white matter quality, and activation to cognitive tasks, even in youth with as little as 1–2 years of heavy drinking and consumption levels of 20 drinks per month, especially if >4–5 drinks are consumed on a single occasion. Heavy marijuana users show some subtle anomalies too, but generally not the same degree of divergence from demographically similar non-using adolescents. This article reviews the extant literature on neurocognition, brain structure, and brain function in adolescent substance users with an emphasis on the most commonly used substances, and in the context of ongoing neuromaturational processes. Methodological and treatment implications are provided.

Huge difference! Weed is the raw plant form and hash is processed into solid block and these days, rarely anywhere near as strong as weed.
