They said they bought the drugs on a Line app by the name of "Tiger J.". The drugs were left by the side of the road for collection.

 

They bought 8,000 pills for just 2 baht each then sold them for between 30 and 100 baht each.

 

They had been doing this for a long time and had made a handy profit.

 

Police are expanding the inquiry to get to the suppliers. 

 

The suspects in this case were charged with attempted dealing and possession of the yaba, a kind of methamphetamine mixed with caffeine that is highly popular in Thailand.

Jeez...2 bht each! No wonder Thailand has such a massive drug problem.

Our house was burgled about 10 years ago by a local druggie. We were told then the cost of a yaabaa pill was 300 bht.

Over supply has crashed the market.

Not a chance, they'll get a 'call' well before an arrest.

I'd read the 300 baht price tag before and wondered how users afforded it.

Get up off your doots and fully legalize Ganja.

Let Yaba go back to being what it used to be - Yah-mah - a stimulant for racehorses.

Hear! Hear!

   That's exactly what it was.

   Ya-ma, horse medicine.

   Anyone who was here in the '70s will remember that.

   The War on Drugs turbocharged official corruption and introduced a smorgasbord of expensive dope to the club scene while making yaba easily available for the proles.

   The social consequences have been devastating. Better it was when ganja was almost as easy to buy as beer. The buzz doesn't seem to make them as violent or as manic as yaba does.

   Decriminilize ganja and strike a blow against organized crime.
