yes, but maybe if they use them for weed they are legal /o/ 

 

It does not make any sense, nothing here does...

I think the recent law change, means you cannot smoke weed in bars or shops that sell weed

What surprises me is that the police are doing a lot of law enforcement at the moment. What has changed? If they keep it up, they might not only find hookahs but even hookers on Walking Street one day.

hookah burners are illegal just like e-cigaretts

 

besides that - this constant onslaught on entertainment venues is harming tourism, people are getting very angry with the authorities here - it needs to stop now

Geez, now they are raiding tourist clubs on Walking St. Great image for the tourists in high season, all clubs being closed around 2am-3am and clubs being raided. Tourists, don't bother coming to Thailand. They don't want you to spend your money here.

They'd be of all different nationalities at Flexx. Mainly African Americans, white Americans, Arabs, Asians.

Agreed. It's getting beyond ridiculous now. Nothing is open, everything is being shut down.

"Detained was the club manager who was charged with operating a club and selling alcohol beyond the shut down time"

 

 

Funny how only Flexx had this issue. Insomnia, Myst, and all the other clubs on Walking St were also opened to 3am until the cops came to shut them all down, but none of them seem to have been charged.

Things must be serious if the club is named & no attempt was made to censor Fahrenheit from the other fracas.  It's the latest weapon in the police armory; Pay or Be Named.
