Their photos led to criticisms of the law enforcers on the island for having done nothing to prevent certain shops from selling the laughing gas or nitrous oxide to tourists. The online social networkers said the photos of tourists high on the laughing gas had affected the image of Phi Phi that is popular for its natural beauty.


Daily News said it had dispatched a reporter to talk to some entertainment venue operators. Daily News said an entertainment venue operator told the reporter that the laughing gas has become a hit among foreign tourists. The operator said western tourists always asked for the laughing gas, prompting many shops, especially those owned by farang, to provide it.


Daily News said the gas has been widely available on the island.


Krabi chief public health officer Doctor Panas Sophongpong said it has yet to be investigated where the gas originated from.


While several Facebook users crtiicized police for doing nothing, several others pointed out that police could do nothing because the gas has not been officially listed as a kind of narcotics.

Where is exactly the problem?

Is Manager online now focusing on female tourists (the other article) instead of corruption and politics?

Look at Facebook of some Thai teenagers, especially from poor families, doing met, driving drunken, selling sex ...

parents see, teachers see, their friends see ... no one cares.

What interest me more is that I've seen here in Thailand many times farang, all-female groups drinking in night clubs, parting on beach ... July-September, Christmas, beginning of the year. Obviously drunken, *high* and almost naked. Young individuals, 20 years old, students.

Who pay for that, their parents, or do they have some extra money from last summer job?

Guys and nightlife in Thailand, ok ... but girls? I mean ... What's gonna be next?

Fun police are definitely out in force on this one. As others have said the buckets of turps they have been drinking was probably more of a contributing factor (and far more detrimental to their health). You've got 3 young girls in their prime "partying" years having a bit of a tear up. Are the being a little stupid and irresponsible... probably. Are they bringing Phi Phi island into disrepute IMHO hardly... are the evil farang the ones are dispensing the majority of the nitrous... not bloody likely. Now most of you old farts will be tsk tsking and calling for their heads but these islands have been promoted as party destinations since Adam was a boy. If the junta wants to stop this sort of behaviour then they need to start with the closing down of every bar in Thailand. Maybe start with the ones where mushrooms and ganja and extasy are so readily available thumbsup.gif hmmmm or maybe some people would be missing out on too many brown envelopes

It may be legal but it's stupid. A lot of people die from that. I think it excludes oxygen from the system.

People died because they used masks directly connected to the nitrous tanks same as the dentist uses, but unsupervised ... this caused some deaths, using a baloon makes it much safer. .... this lovely island's "image" has been tarnished by Thai greed, not laughing gas.
