You came to this page looking for Marijuana and dope in Thailand, first thing I’d like to ask is….Are you crazy? Marijuana is prohibited in Thailand and is completely illegal. You might have heard stories about people getting high in Thailand however they are really walking a fine line, ever heard the story Bangkok Hilton? Yeah, buying drugs in Thailand is a bad idea.
Some well known spots to buy Marijuana in Thailand have been reported were Patpong in Bangkok, Koh Samui in the south, Pattaya Beach, and the mountains of Chiang Mai, also were reported in the same places were people being arrested and thrown in jail for years because they attempted to buy or have purchased Marijuana in Thailand.
Every time I’m in Pattaya walking along beach road someone is trying to sell me some sort of drug, do I look like a druggie geez! Once I was on an overnight trek in the mountains of Chiang Mai when some hill tribe person tried to sell me a kilo of weed for like $100. If I did want any which I didn’t why in the world would I want a whole bloody kilo of it, actually a week later I was talking to the Tourist Police who said a man was busted with 1/2 of marijuana in his hotel room safe, the maid had smelt it, now the guy is in jail pending trial. Are you sure you want that same fate?
Pai is also another place foreigners have known to go to buy Marijuana in Thailand, about 2 1/2 hours drive out of Bangkok is a small sleepy village, it’s known that this place is full of bars and while not freely available I’ve heard stories of people buying the drug from the guys that work in the bars and tattoo shops.
I’ve seen people ask Tuk Tuk drivers for drugs in Thailand, pretty scary way to buy drugs in Thailand, if you actually do survive the ride with the Tuk Tuk driver and don’t get scammed, robbed or driven to the police you might be in the few percentage of people who walked away.
One place in Thailand you can actually see Marijuana grown is at Doi Bui about 10km after the famous Doi Suthep, just keep driving until you see the signs. The actually have poppies growing which heroin is made out of as well as marijuana plants growing on the hillside, you can actually dress up in traditional clothes and get your photo taken next to the plants.
Every backpacker to Thailand knows that if you go to Koh Pangan full moon party there are lots of drugs available including Marijuana, it seems like Pai there is a very if any police presence in the area and that if it were to happen there no one would know the better.
Thai police have taken on American style policing where entrapment is allowed even for rolling a joint. Undercover policemen patrol the known drug areas of Thailand searching for drug users and drug dealers. I hear more people getting busted buying drugs than I do drug dealers selling drugs, i don’t know if this is corruption or they are just good at hiding the stuff (doubt it).
In all the Thai police do have crackdowns on drug dealers and busts occur all the time, huge stakes too, police are often shot at during the raids on drug dealers, it’s a very scary business to be in Thailand especially before when the previous government was in power. However the Thai police force do an excellent job with the resources they have.
Finally whatever you do don’t go try and find Marijuana and other drugs in Thailand, there are so many wonderful highs you can get out of Thailand you don’t need to do that stuff. Try some Sang Song whisky, that’ll put you out faster than weed will!
