Thailand & Pattaya News, from Fabulous 103fm (21 June 2022)
The definition of growing cannabis for personal use has become a LITTLE clearer this week as the limit is set, as predicted to TEN plants per HOUSEHOLD, with households here defined as that area covered by a single chanote and NOT individual buildings within that area. Commercial growers have a more stringent list of requirements to register. That legislation will be added to the current new laws being passed by parliament.
Drivers who ignore traffic tickets, such as for speeding or other matters face arrest and a police criminal record according to the deputy police commissioner. 2 reminders may be issued before warrants are issued, and he reminded the public that a police record may affect immigration approvals of visas and travel.
Non-stop flights to Canada are to be launched for the high season. After a 10 year hiatus on non stop flights to North America, Air Canada has approved new routes from December through to next April. For other airlines, there will still be at least one stop over.
A full investigation into the disappearance of the operator of some 27 branches of a Sushi franchise in the capital. Seems he fled the country ahead of claims that more than 500 people had either invested OR bought meal vouchers for resale. Interest was first raised after onliners asked WHY the eateries were suddenly closed. An official statement said that it was due to computer errors.. That, it appears, may not be the case.
Thailand has LOST out to neighboring Cambodia on the claim for the world’s largest freshwater fish. This as in the Mekong, which separates the two countries, Cambodian fishermen netted a freshwater stingray weighing in at a massive 650Lbs, and measuring 4 meters in length. Tagged and recorded, it was released back into the river but, in fairness to the fishermen, they were paid the same rate per kilo as if they had sold it for food.
A coach carrying workers pulled slowly away from traffic lights as they turned green, but crashed into the traffic control box on a Chonburi intersection. Police attended only to find that the driver had died. It’s presumed he had a heart attack, no one else was injured.
A second huge storm front hit the city after dark last night leaving the area swamped in floods and debris, much due to excessively high winds. Early morning revealed the railway road covered in sand, which is as dangerous as ice to drivers and bike riders, and a mass of garbage at the end of each joining road, especially Khao Noi. Whilst that storm front has passed, there is a good chance of a similar storm today.
