– New Cannabis legislation mandates permits for growers
Under new planned legislation, permits will be required for anyone growing cannabis for personal or business purposes, according to the health minister who told the press this week that the retail of those parts popular with smokers, such as buds and flowers, will be banned, deeming them illegal narcotics. The Prime Minister has ordered that the new legislation be in effect by the end of this year. The leaves, branches, roots, stems, and seeds would still be available for health and medical use.

– Three children electrocuted at Thai temple
Firefighters called to a traditional monk’s house at a Nonthaburi temple were shocked to discover the remains of three children who, it’s believed, were electrocuted accidentally in the steel-framed building. All three were in the care of the temple’s children’s center, living there under care. The center has been caring for and raising children for 30 years, and it’s believed that the youngsters sneaked in there from their dormitory for fun. It has been confirmed that they were not locked in the building, which burned out.

– Singapore plane turbulence leaves 20 in ICU with spinal injuries
Twenty people remain in intensive care after the Singapore airliner, which made an emergency landing in Bangkok, encountered the heaviest of turbulence. Medics report that the majority have spinal injuries caused by hitting the cabin ceiling during the 6000 ft drop, which occurred in just a few minutes on Tuesday. In ICU, lists include six Britons, six Malaysians, three Australians, two Singaporeans, and one each from Hong Kong, New Zealand, and the Philippines. According to a report by the U.S. National Transportation Safety Board, clear air turbulence is virtually undetectable with current technology. “One second, you’re cruising smoothly; the next, passengers, crew, and unsecured carts or other items are being thrown around the cabin.”

– Fake foreign ‘immigration officer’ assaults petrol pump attendant
In Udon Thani, a foreigner, assumed to be drunk, was caught on CCTV berating a petrol pump attendant who pointed out that throwing garbage down from his vehicle onto the forecourt was simply wrong. The middle-aged man didn’t like being told off and slapped the lad. Police plan to identify him and process charges as the fluent Thai speaker claimed to be an official at immigration. They will, of course, respond quickly to that.

– Angry wife strikes cheating husband with hammer and knife
And in Lampang Province, a local woman, whose 64-year-old husband had been unfaithful to the extent of having at least 5 recent affairs, struck him with a hammer during their latest row. As he crawled outside, she finished him off with a kitchen knife and then waited for police to arrive, telling them that he had attacked HER first.

– Overstaying foreigner faces deportation after threatening Thai landlord 
On Phuket, a Thai landlord called the police when his former tenant tried unsuccessfully to regain entry to a property there. With the tenant, a Swedish man, threatening to come back and harm him, the local man made the call. Police attended and quickly discovered that the errant Swede was on an overstay dating back around a thousand days. Now en route to the immigration detention center, he will likely be deported but only after paying the fines and the cost of his one-way ticket. The blacklisted stamp, that is no charge.

– Constant storms & flooding continue in Pattaya
Meanwhile, constant storms across the region have left many roads impassable this morning. The railway road between Noi and Talo was flooded out at dawn, and many reports are coming in of flood damage in the city itself. With the outlook for the next 7 days of more rain, city hall teams are out clearing drains, and water certainly clears faster than a few years ago. However, in many cases, what some refer to as shoddy work on new drainage has seen it simply fail. For those who are experiencing flooding, it’s best to contact city hall.

– British Man talked down from Bai Hai condo, saved from jump
A 60-year-old British man was talked down from the half-finished waterfront condo project at Bai Hai yesterday after telling a security guard he planned to jump. For 30 minutes, police chatted with him before he was persuaded to change his mind. It’s not known whether he was drunk or under the influence of “something else.”

– Passenger takes wheel as taxi driver dozes off en-route to Airport
And as per Megan, on our morning show, a local Thai woman took the wheel of a taxi that she had hired to take her to the airport this week. The 3 AM cruise turned into a snooze for the driver as she spotted him dozing off at the wheel. Politely offering to take over driving for the rest of the way, he accepted and dozed off as she drove. No word on whether she still had to pay for the trip.
