Police in Sa Kaeo province in eastern Thailand yesterday arrested an unidentified man for allegedly selling marijuana online with possession of marijuana.
At the 42-year-old’s residence, police reportedly found 111 marijuana plants in the backyard. The plants, unknown strains, were seized as evidence. Police also reportedly seized 16.6 kilograms of marijuana, also known as dope, devil’s lettuce, sticky icky and cha (à¸à¸±à¸à¸à¸²) in Thai.
Police said the marijuana had been dried and the suspect had wrapped and sealed it in cardboard boxes for sale. They also allege that the man sold his dried products on the Internet, via Facebook and Line. The illicit goods were then shipped through a transport company.
Last year, Thailand removed marijuana from the list of narcotics. The amended law was intended to allow patients, doctors and traditional healers to cultivate marijuana for medical and commercial purposes. However, cannabis buds are still classified as Category 5 narcotics with severe penalties.
