– Thailand’s Cannabis inquiry enters second phase
Thailand’s Public Health Minister has moved the controversial cannabis inquiry onto its second phase this week. With plans to reclassify marijuana used for pleasure and those parts of the plant which are more potent to the list of Type 5 narcotic drugs, time has been spent surveying some 100,000 people for their opinion. Reports indicate that 4/5th of those surveyed, coming from all walks of life, are in support of the reclassification. While supporting the continued use for medical and health reasons, which will continue, the survey appears to be another nail in the coffin for ganja shops and street dealers who, to date, appear to trade with abandon.

– Thailand’s senate elections conclude with surprises
Senate elections in Thailand ended yesterday morning, with the required 200 names approved for the second house and a list of 100 who, while not winning a seat, will remain as potential replacements for any who vacate their positions for any reason. Several surprise non-wins for people expected to make it into the house, and a leader has yet to be chosen. The Senate here votes on law changes and matters of the constitution, but the new house will not have a vote in who becomes Prime Minister in the future, a feature which in the past has had major effects on leadership.

– Italian expat with vicious dogs terrorizes locals on Thai beach
In Trat Province, to the south of Pattaya, locals have complained about a foreign man who oversees a resort there and, according to neighbors, encourages several rather vicious dogs to attack people passing the resort on the beachfront. One 60-year-old had gone public, claiming that he was threatened and had the dogs set on him as he cycled by, while others state that the dogs are allowed to run free without any control. Thai media quickly picked up on the reports, and many people are comparing it to the Swiss man who kicked a Thai lady as she sat on a public beach adjacent to his home. In Trat, after the dog attack, the local man claims that the foreigner told him never to use the beach again, pushed him several times, and knocked him over. Local cops questioned the Italian, who it is said confessed and paid a fine of just 1,000 baht, ensuring a speedy release. This comes as others come forward with complaints, including a local 78-year-old scavenger who said that she had been attacked as she collected waste for resale and that she had been given 200 baht to go away and not make a fuss. This story is likely to get bigger over the coming days.

– Police raid bars, illegal workers arrested
Meanwhile, at home in Laem Chabang, the karaoke bars were quieter last night after a raid by police saw 17 Lao women along with their local employers arrested for working in bars and eateries. It seems they had settled in nicely in the Sri racha nighttime areas; locals reported them, and all will be handed over to immigration police for deportation.

– Loan sharks arrested after forcing woman into bodyselling
A gang of loan sharks accused of forcing a 22-year-old woman into prostitution to repay a debt that she co-signed for a friend has been hauled in for questioning by police after the story went viral. The woman had made the mistake of co-signing a loan for an erstwhile friend, and with them absconding, the collectors came to her with menaces, demanding several large sums of money and directing her to work the streets, which she did.

– Former Pattaya Mayor elected president of windsurfing association
A welcome face appears in local social media reports this week as Itthiphon Khunpluem, former Pattaya mayor and government minister, was elected as president of the Windsurfing Association of Thailand for the 8th term. The voting, which was unanimous, brought a smile to the genial face of the ex-mayor, who, during his tenure, oversaw the fast growth of the city and headed the modernization of the region as Pattaya moved from a city of lesser repute to one which is regularly bustling with families of visitors. The Windsurfing Association has several high-profile people on its committee and represents clubs from around the nation.

– Chinese woman arrested in Pattaya for 150 million baht ponzi scheme
Immigration police officials have caught a Chinese woman wanted in her own country for operating a Ponzi scheme which saw wannabe investors in a crypto program lose 150 million baht. The 24-year-old had sneaked in across the border near Chiang Rai and was here illegally. Nabbed in her Pattaya condo, an international link provided matching fingerprints, and she will be assisted in her return to her home country soon.
