On Saturday 5th July, Pattaya police announced that they had arrested Jintana Onsaad, a 24 year old woman from Chiang Rai in northern Thailand.
She was caught trying to pass almost a gram of crystal meth hidden inside a packet of Crisps to a male detainee on the second floor of the police station.
Thai drug laws are among the most strict in the world, with foreigners regularly languishing n prison for many years, some even being executed.
Although we obviously condemn the alteration of Potato Chips and Crisps, that are perfectly wonderful without the addition of grade A drugs, it would be quite awful if someone was killed for such a stupid act.
Hopefully for Miss Onsaad that fact that she was said to have been detained for further questioning about her drug contact in Pattaya, will see a lesser conviction.
