Default Thai news

The following bust was in news in UK and Thailand - however, the Thai news published both senders' and receivers' names, UK phone number and full UK address:

3,444 kilograms (7,577 pounds) of cannabis worth a total of 1.4million was found in a residential home in Saraburi, according to Deputy Prime Minister Chalerm Yubumrung.

A 43-year-old Thai man, thought to be called Nipon, has been arrested and said he was hired to package the drug with shipping labels addressed to a warehouse in Dartford, Kent.

This comes as a result of a large governmental crackdown on the drug trade in Thailand which mainly targets methamphetamine.

The U.N believes most marijuana in Thailand originates in Laos where law enforcement is more relaxed.

I might be wrong, but I always thought that if you get caught with a 10 bag o weed in Thailand then you'd be looking at some serious time in a Thai prison?

Not quite sure why the UN would say this. Thailand (Laos included) is one of the last places I'd wanna get caught smoking a joint. Pity really.

Laos and Thailand are different countries.

The two countries are not entirely dissimilar or culturally separate.
