    That's about right, there's 35 ounces in a kg. most people I used to know would buy a Henry(eighth), not a whole ounce. An eighth was about 15 pounds back then and that's years ago.

    That math works out at 15pounds x 8 x 35 = 4,200 GBP or 226,800 baht

    Googling, In the UK nowadays, you are looking at around 6-7000 quid for a kg of weed bro

    Entrapment is similar to when somebody aks you to sell them drugs, and you know that they like drugs, so you buy some of the drugs from your mate. Then you sell those drugs from your mate to the bloke that aksed you if you can sell 'im some drugs.
    It's not the same as if you is standing on a bicycle on a street corner and you has a bag full of drugs what you wants to sell to passers by, so you say
    "Hey mister, what drugs you want to buy?" and he says "you is nicked".

    Er, yes mate.

    Alai wa? as in that's what the Thai coppers say when you declare 'This is entrapment!' Before they break their ass laughing and connect your gonnads to a car battery.

    Hopefully.

    The UK is relatively unique in that they don't reassess sentences of prison transfers from overseas. So UK prisoners doing ridiculously long sentences in places like Thailand don't appeal for transfer, gut wait for a pardon.

    Which usually comes in 8-12 years from the King.

    But of course, what is guaranteed about that in 8 years time from now, it is illegal to even speculate.
