Smiling couple arrested for ganja possession in Prachuab Khiri Khan

HUA HIN:-- A farang and his Thai girlfriend were arrested for having ganja in their possession at Hua Yang Police station, Prachuab Khiri Khan.

Even after being arrested the couple seemed to be deeply happy smiling widely to the camera.
Provisions for drug-related offences are contained in a raft of laws variously defined in the Measure for Suppressing Narcotic Offenders Act 2534 (1991) as being 'laws governing narcotics and laws governing active materials which have an active effect on the mind and the nerves.' The two most important Acts for practical purposes are the Narcotics Act 2522 (1979) and the Psychotropic Substances Act 2518 (1975).
Laws regarding cannabis in Thailand are as follows:

    From 2-15 years imprisonment and a fine of 200,000 – 1,500,000 Baht for production, importation or exportation
    From 2-10 years imprisonment or a fine of 40,000 – 200,000 Baht or both for disposal or possession for the purpose of disposal. If the quantity is over 10 kilograms, the penalty is increased to a maximum of 15 years and a fine of 200,000 – 1,500,000 Baht
    Imprisonment not exceeding 5 years and or a fine not exceeding 100,000 Baht or both for possession
    Imprisonment not exceeding 1 year and a fine of 100,000 – 1,000,000 for consumption
