BANGKOK:-- Eight backpackers were arrested for smoking ganja in Bangkok yesterday - they were all rounded up at a guest house named "Overstay".
 
A joint operation was mounted between soldiers and Bowonmonkhol station police after complaints of noise and smoke wafting from the Charoen Sanitwong premises.
 
The task force found 20 foreigners in the 15 room facility - they were both men and women from the UK, Germany, Hungary, Russia, Spain, Israel and China.
 
All were given a urine test for drugs and eight of these - seven men and one woman - registered a purple result indicating marijuana use.
 
The Israeli - Ewal Chawot, 32 - was found in possession of 22.64 grams of the drug.
 
The seven caught with the drug in their system were charged at the local police station while the Israeli faces possession with intent to distribute as well.
 
Police are now looking for the owner of "Overstay" to determine if they knew what was going on at the premises.

Well done, authorities. 

 

Thailand is now a much safer and moral place. Well, if we ignore the corruption and road deaths.

They must have been on a special course - nobody could surely be stupid enought to have a pot smoking party, in a guesthouse called "Overstay", in Bangkok in the current climate?

I had to decide whether you were being sarcastic or serious. If serious, it's definitely more important to clear all these recreational weed users out than to round up the yaba distributors and other hundreds of criminals doing business in Thailand.:wink:

Trouble is the taxpayer will have to pay.

 

Deport them, with a "not allowed back in" stamp in their passport

Doing it openly is for sure stupid.

Doing at this particular time is so much more than stupid.

As the Chinese say, May they live in interesting times.

A few years in jail is what's needed here. I remember sitting next to some guys smoking weed and it was terrifying. They were just sat there not saying much. Then they started laughing for no reason. To make things worse they ordered loads of food and ate it all. 

 

Luckily they just left and went home. I was very lucky. I could have been killed by these gateway addicts.

They will get a fine for smoking not a big deal.Possession with intent to sell is more serious.

Yeah, "in the current climate", the name of the guesthouse really sealed their fate, didn't it?

How out of touch with reality can you be?
