The Samut Sakhon police chief Maj-Gen Apichat Wannaphak sent in a raiding party of officers after a complaint was received on an official hotline about an illegal Krathom tea den in the Tha Jeen, Muang district area.
 
There at two adjacent two story houses, 37 young Thais of working age and migrant workers were arrested.
 
Two of the migrants jumped from the second floor in an effort to flee but they broke their legs in the attempt.
 
They reportedly admitted to brewing up the Krathom tea and selling it for 100 baht per 1.25 liter soda bottle.
 
Lots of evidence in the form of frozen Krathom and brewing equipment was taken in by the authorities. 
 
Naew Na said that the authorities were informed about the goings on at the houses that had been raided many times before.
 
Now they screamed in their headline that both Thais and foreigners were flagrantly breaching the Covid regulations at a "nam thom" party.
 
The men who jumped to avoid capture were taken to hospital.

In the background R. Kelly could be heard singing "I believe I can fly."

I thought the Kratom was removed from the illegal drug list last week. So I assume it is just because they were having a party of any sort for the arrest. 
 

It doesn’t do much. I have had a triple dose before and the effects were very mild. 
That said, you get much higher productivity from laborers if they are chewing on it all day. 

It may make you think you can jump off balconies, but it really doesn’t help much.

I thought the article is about farang foreigners and not those ' migrants foreigners' which make the article not so interesting to read...

The story says they were arrested because it's an illegal den, perhaps it's not one of the 10 provinces that kratom is legal in.

I don't think the trial period has been completed yet.

UPDATE: Kratom legalisation passed through the lower house today. It's going to the senate for a final reading and vote shortly. Should be legal within the next three months or so.

Why do participants have to gather together in numbers to indulge their bad habits? And yet again it's migrant workers at fault. Probably indulging to forget their low wages poor housing and exorbitant profits to their employers
