Another distributor faces five years in jail for selling E-cigarettes

Recommended Posts

Stupid people who don't understand that to make good money and be safe they need to sell pirated software, music, movies, fake watches, garments and so on... Or perhaps human beings...

Why on earth do you want to try your luck with e-cigs???

damn…that guy is selling with impunity

 

deserves a good busting….

 

sources on the ground tell me that thais are vaping in ever increasing numbers so they must be getting the stuff from somewhere…probably underground…..not from this seller…..he must be nuts doing it so openly

I vape e-cigs.  I'm planning on visiting Thailand in June.  Will I have problems bringing my e-cig for my own personal vaping?  Is there a Thai law against vaping? Or, is it just illegal to import for the purpose of selling or selling illegal?

You say  '... victimless and innocuous 'crimes' 

 

Perhaps you should talk to a few folks who have lost parents, husbands, wifes, children etc., to second hand smoke.

A few thoughts on the above, and on the topic:
Second hand smoke comes primarily from cigarettes.
E-cigarettes do not emit significant smoke, as far as I have seen, and their purpose is to get nicotine into an addicts body without emitting tar and other cancer causing agents etc. to innocent bystanders like cigarettes do.

These retards are absolutely intent on destroying the economy for what they see as right and proper:

They have total disregard for the wellbeing and financial security of the Thai people or anyone residing here.

Even when Taksin and Yingluck were taking billions with their schemes, at least the economy was healthy.

 

I lost a business almost overnight when they decided that they didn't want 'zero dollar tours'

Then the nonsense at Songkran and the list just keeps getting longer.

Total disregard for the economy or the wellbeing of the people living here.

These morons need to be stopped!

So e-fags are ILLEGAL but fags are LEGAL? Wow, that is some amount of influence that the fag industry has.

One could say this is because this is a crime that hurts the big businessmen that have tobacco plantations and processing units  in Thailand. Touch a big shots income and punishment is harsh.. also why those defamation laws are in place to protect rich business (and corruption)

I think you may be right.  The real crimes in Thailand are things that effect the lives of hiso and influential people.

The truly idiotic thing is that e-cigs appear to be significantly healthier than conventional cigarettes, perhaps to the point where vaping might even be harmless.  UK has licensed them and they are openly on sale in high streets.

 

There is also an element of self-fulfillment here as the sale of them will be forced underground and the products on offer could be inferior/dangerous.

You will probably be arrested if you try and bring them in.  Best to buy some ciggies from the government owned tabbacco company on arrival.

It is so astonishing to anyone with a taste of international life that the penalties for such victimless and innocuous 'crimes' are so significantly out of balance with those penalties for other far more serious violent crimes, bag snatches, accidents while drunk driving (or under the influence), hit and run....

 

What do you mean "victimless"?  

 

They don't call it the Tobacco Monopoly for nuthin'.

In a UK study

50% of e-cigarette users have been able to quit

must be about tax revenue and not about the nations health

This is totally about the money the country makes from tax from cigs, booze. If they could make a monopoly on e-cigs, drugs and sex it would be totally legal but they cant. The world is now bigger than mere governments and they dont like it. So stomp on the little man.

Meanwhile real criminals walk around free.

Why did they not pick up  the 40 vendors selling these on Sukhumvit Road ?

Thailand is going crazy about the wrong things

My Daughter recently bought me a Vape Mod and E-juice a couple of months ago, and mu lungs ate thanking her. My persistent cough is gone; and my craving for nicotine has reduced considerably.
