Anutin calls for arrest of foreigners selling pot

Post by Whistler » May 11, 2024, 12:45 pm

Deputy PM joins in push to reverse legalisation of pot.

Interestingly, he calls for the arrest of foreigners illegally selling the stuff but apparently, Thais illegally selling is OK?

Before I get shouted down, yes I know the site quoted is not 100% reliable

Nowhere does anyone suggest that illegal Thai pot sellers will get a free pass. This "Anutin hates all farangs" is well past the sell-by date.

I would be more interested in what has inspired Anutin's volte- face, where the arch propagator of the current marijuana legalization policy is suddenly opposed to it.

The 'use by date' just got updated if the source I quoted is correct. I would suggest however, that there is never a 'use by date' for racism

It is pretty hard here in Thailand for foreigner to get a work permit to actual sell anything

Incorrect. A foreigner can now legally have more than one job in Thailand.

But they're still free to pedal their racist nonsense.

As it says, foreigners doing "Front shop sale" is prohibited. Am I missing something here?
