illegal drugs in Thailand

One thing you should know about Thailand is that it has little patience for drugs and even less for drug smugglers. Here’s a picture of a message left on a bulletin board in a Bangkok hostel that explains it better than I ever could. It’s an open letter asking tourists to go visit an Englishman imprisoned for life at Bangkok’s notorious prison nicknamed the Bangkok Hilton.

It’s pretty easy to find drugs like marijuana down south around Thailand’s beaches and island (and other things if you know where to go and who to look for) but the country has a really strict policy overall; heaven help the foreigner caught trafficking in Thailand.
