    Happy Pizza Crackdown in PP

    I've been told by a former happy pizza restaurant partner/owner in PP that the American DEA is in Phnom Penh and using US aid money as a tool/bribe to have Cambodian authorities crackdown & shut down happy pizza restaurants?

    Anyone know if the reason is indeed, the US DEA?

    Or is it for other reasons?

    My understanding is that the 'main ingredient" in Happy pizza was legal in Cambo up until 1995/1996 (When I was there in 1995 you could easily buy the stuff in the local market where they had huges bales of it). In those days 1 US dollar got about a kilogram (no kidding). However, as part of the deal to join ASEAN cambo was forced to criminalize it (mostly prompted by Singapore). Think anything thats being going on there has been illegal but ignored. the damage was done back 10 or more years ago. Anything else is just window dressing.

    Thanks, nidhogg.

    Still sad news. The global world is dictating a nation or city or local community on what laws to pass, and what is and is not acceptable.

    If ASEAN is the reason, that is bad. But not as bad as if the US DEA was interfering, although they may be involved on the side.

    ASEAN, it is, it seems.

    Not only bad but utterly ludicrous. Must get that nasty ganja threat under control to prevent the downfall of civilization. Guess they have to do something as there sure is no effort in getting the Burmese junta to stop their atrocities. Idiots!

    I don't smoke marijuana. I haven't for years. It was never my thing, and instead always just drank beer.

    But I am a strong supporter of de-criminalization of marijuana in the US and around the world.

    Alcohol leads to far worse things. The hysteria by authorities about marijuana is based on ignorance and control, IMO.

    Just checked (better than working I suppose). As I thought, growing outlawed in 1996

    DEA Resources, For Law Enforcement Officers, Intelligence Reports, Cambodia Country Brief, December 2001

    and joined asean in 1999

    Association of Southeast Asian Nations - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    There was no way Singapore was gonna let cambo in without changing that.

    In the 60/70's you could say the old men running the show where anti youth culture, they really believed in the "evils of Marijuana" now the old men running the place should know better as most of them where toking in their youth but the God bothering church lobby wins this one for now.

    Sure you will find some. As in Thailand, Cambodian laws are often just "guidelines".

    What? We can't buy illegal drugs freely on the street anymore? The authorities are enforcing laws?

    Jeez.

    Guess we'll have to stick to complaining about traffic fines.

    I think the enforcement of the marijuana law will result in about the same procedure for traffic fines.

    but there is no way the sinaporean chinese patriachs will stop secretly poking a 13-14yr old malay/indo virgin every year in the vain hope of living longer.

    What annoys me about cannabis being illegal is that it's not even a manufactured drug, it's a naturally occurring plant on this earth and we as humans should have a right to access it and use it how we want to.

    can't the same argument be applied to opium?

    Your bank account number is a random collection of publicly accessible numerals and letters for password.

    Why shouldn't I claim it if I can access it? Do you maintain sole proprietorship of that sequence? I don't think so, mister.

    beat me to it... or magic mushrooms?

    Yes, let's have some opium and magic mushrooms too. Could be quite a party.

    Naturally occurring fauna, why shouldn't I be able to pick it and use it in the regions it naturally occurs.

    What you're talking about results in there being an innocent victim. Please tell me where the innocent victims are in regards to marijuana. I'm not talking about other drugs, just marijuana. I suppose you would bring up impaired driving, and then of course we come full circle to alcohol.

    Or any other substance that would impair. Plenty of laws for those and they should be enforced.

    Happy Pizza eaters need a designated driver not a jail sentence.

    There's plenty of places in PP you can smoke weed fairly openly while you are drinking beer or having a meal.
