Officials on the holiday island of Koh Phangan - famous for its full moon party raves - have found ganja growing in the hills.

 

It was DOPA who found the dope. 

 

Department of Provincial Administration official Sutthipong Thongreuang had received information about the grow in Ban Thong Nai Pan, Ban Tai.

 

He informed district chief Phoonsak Sothonpathumrak and the local station chief Pol Col Panya Niratmanon who investigated. 

 

Some 100 plants - close to harvest time - were found intermingled with natural vegetation next to a coconut orchard.

The raiding party spied on the area for an hour to see who might come but nobody did so they decided to uproot the plants.

 

A hoe, shovel, spade, hose, insecticide and fertilizer were taken into evidence. 

 

Investigations will take place to find who was behind this. 

 

One thing is for sure, reported Naew Na; whoever it was was taking advantage of the officials being busy with Covid-19 related matters. 

 

And that the ganja when ready would have been supplied to tourists when the island is opened again later in the year.

Those plants don't look close to harvest at all, still in veg ........... another 8 weeks to harvest at least.

oops...better call my friend and see if this was his plot! LOL.

 

Stunning they go after this, but openly allow all sorts of other BS to go on in that island.  Corruption at it's worst.

 

Somebody must not have paid the proper fees....LOL

What a load of nonsense!

 

It is entirely possible that a member of the DOPA was actually the one who planted the weed, and was ratted out by a co-worker; its not like they have been busy dealing with all the tourists hordes, have they?

 

Further, what evidence is there that locals don't partake in the weed? Is Naew Na seriously suggesting that locals on KPH don't indulge? Seriously?

 

Finally, why would anyone think that the weed would last until the tourist island re-opened? Are there not many people there at the moment?

 

My last point is simply this; if they found 10 plants, then it is likely that there are a thousand more somewhere up there in the hills.

 

If KPH wants to re-open to tourism, then the single best thing that the government could do is legalize weed for recreational purposes and then kick back and watch the visitors roll in.

"And that the ganja when ready would have been supplied to tourists when the island is opened again later in the year"

 

So pure speculation....

Ganja baan is mostly for local folks consumption.

Tourists don't deserve better than compressed Laotian and/or Cambodian full of formaldehyde.

The days in the late 70's and early 80's when Thai Stick was very popular in the US, and was brought back by many a military boy in the day.

Thanks, now we have some expert comments...🙏

 

With hemp growing in the hills, perhaps Phangan after all is the island with the secret beach that the hippies are searching for...🤔

You couldn't give them away unless some Thai is using the leaf for a food ingredient.

Oh give it a rest, you backward-brained goons!

 

Cannabis is the secret-sauce answer to several of your economic/health/crime problems, not the cause of them, unless of course, you make it a problem, which you do.

The Absinthe fairy told me that tourists pay tuk-tuk drivers B1000 for useless baggies of chop all the time, the good stuff gets exported, or sold to locals.

Thai stick is very much still around. It is after all, Thailands own wild genetic/organic strain.

 

Nobody, particularly here, was doing botanical science back in the day, so that stuff was, and still is the most commonly home-grown species here.

 

Every one of our local, middle-age, lower middle-class neigbours openly grows at home, including a Government worker.

 

The genie is absolutely out the bottle, but the fossils in charge still can't get their heads around wind-up gramophones, so they'll never understand -or lose their terror of illegal drugs, and don't want to.

So must be a lot of foreigners with sore throats and headaches walking around. Better to smoke Krongthip ciggies if that is the case.

How it's done, they take the buyer in the tuktuk to "the dealer" in fact, they just go to a secluded spot, with little light, do the deal, and then immediately get in the tuk tuk and floor it. Leaving the punter standing in the soi B1000 poorer with a baggie of sweepings. One consolation is at least it's technically weed.

In Prague, the Gitanes do a trick with an evergreen vegetation wrapped in clingfilm, they partially open the film, burn a bit of the veg with a lighter and it smells like weed. The deal is then done, and they take off at a brisk trot.

sounds like a precursor to having someone squeal on you for a reward.

A lot longer than 8 weeks I think you'll find, the days are getting longer now so slow grow because no rush.

Heavens to Betsy its a good thing they found it before it was sold to unsuspecting tourists....just imagine the misery it would have caused.

 

Remember, just say NO!  (Unless of course you are dealing in drugs to pay for weapons for some terrorist group to topple a democratically elected leader).

     Your comment surely shows you haven't a clue about being an expert on the cannabis plant. What reason would a cannabis grower plant hemp to sell to anybody? Hemp is defined as a cannabis plant that contains 0.3 percent or less THC, while marijuana is a cannabis plant that contains more than 0.3 percent

nah, the business leaders of the world do not want drugs decriminalized/legalized and so they won't be for quite a while yet. There's just too much money at stake that's being perfectly rinsed through cryptocurrency, so much that if removed, could cause world wide economic earthquakes that would reverberate in every major country on the globe..
