    Briton caught with ganja on Samui

    Immigration police on Monday arrested a British man on Koh Samui island and charged him with illegal possession and use of marijuana.

    Police said Paul Matthew Kennedy, 32, was arrested on Monday at his home in Bo Phut.

    Informants had alleged Mr Kennedy was involved in marijuana-related activities.

    They learned from social media that Mr Kenedy had allegedly run a business selling products for growing marijuana in the United Kingdom.

    A search of his bag found a small amount of marijuana. Police found marijuana in the drawer of a TV table, and more in a refrigerator.

    Mr Kennedy said he bought it for 60,000 baht from a Thai woman.

    A urine test confirmed he had used marijuana.

    Mr Kenedy was charged with illegal possession and use of marijuana.

    Looks a right dweeb - but then he'd have to be to buy 60k of gancha on a small island in Thailand.

    If indeed that's what happened.

    Odd not seeing any weights/quantity of the herb, just what he claimed to pay. 60,000 would be 2-4 kg.

    No cuffs, no quantity, I'm guessing they are working out a deal already.

    60k for what? they said they found small amounts, certainly suspect, and those 3 geezers can't be real cops?

    No handcuffs, no scales, no bags and 3 regional office workers?

    Other than smoking it, and selling it, what are “Marijuana-related activities”?

    Laughing? Sleeping? Eating excessively?

    It's hard to remember thru' the mushroom haze, but when I first went to Samui in 1982 being caught without a bag would attract an undue amount of attention from local vendors.

    It'll be back with the police connections and recycled for the next sale and set up an idiot.

    I was thinking the same thing . . . no finger pointing, no crime. Obvious. The fat git is a tourist cop, obviously.
