BANGKOK: -- A police and military raiding party swooped on shisha restaurants and distributors in upper Sukhumvit Road, Bangkok, last night.

 

A total of eleven establishments in Soi 3, Soi 3/1, Soi 5 and Soi 11 were inspected and dozens of pipes and many kilos of sheesha tobacco were seized.

 

Several owners, managers and staff were taken in for questioning.

 

Illegal distribution of pipes and tobacco was found to be taking place at Studio Masr and Emperor Shisha in Soi 3, Nasir Al-Masr in 3/1 and the Le Fenix Hotel in Soi 11.

 

Several of the establishments checked were found to be operating within the law.

 

The area used to be well known for smoking sheesha until the military government cracked down and made it illegal in Thailand.

I used to smoke shisha in coffee shops in Dubai. I have seen it in many places in Thailand but never knew it had been made illegal. The question is why was it made illegal?

The government has difficulty in collecting tax on sheesha tobacco. Much the same reason why nicotine vaporizers are illegal.

It's not, in fact no law has ever been passed, this is just another, as the Phuket governor said, illegal "fantasy" law.

It would be a better use of resources to bust the Africans selling narcotic drugs on Sukhumvit 5-13.

And while they are doing that they could remove the footpath whores along the same route.

Unfortunately the Nigerians have a system that's impossible to bust. The only way is to do what Thaksin did and what Phillipines president did. Shoot them

They can hire a white farang trying to buy drugs from them...if they deliver they are busted. What's impossible about that?

This has far less hassles than chasing Africans

The with "chasing" africans is eventually you will piss them off and they start to chase you.
