KOH SAMUI:-- A raid by 50 soldiers and police at a well known Chaweng pub on Koh Samui netted almost three dozen tourists who had been taking drugs.
 
Out of about 100 patrons tested 32 returned the tell-tale purple urine test.
 
The pub - that was not named  - was raided at 3am and found to be operating after hours and with a license that had run out last December. The man looking after the premises - Itthichai Chunparicha, 40, was arrested.
 
Some 14 shisha pipes, that are illegal in Thailand, were taken into evidence. Neither the fate of the tourists or what drugs they had been taking was reported in the Daily News story.

Many years ago, I went to a late night pub in Samui.  I was amazed at them openly selling drugs.  And how many were on it.  Never went again.

It beggars belief that shisha pipes are illegal, that would be like som tum being banned in middle eastern countries.

They are really bad for your health, and have been banned in other countries, like Singapore:

So were the drugs somehow ingested using these shesha pipes? 

 

Is this common for middle easteners or were these farangs ?

Yeah I know but that's a religious thing isn't it ? Buddha didn't say thou shalt not puff in a shisha pipe (unless you're ordained).

I highly doubt this single incident is going to convince young farang that Thailand is no longer a party destination.

Arresting people for taking drugs and shutting down the supply is ruining tourism? If that's the case, so be it.

So you would be OK with your own kid doing drugs in a night club?
