Pattaya, the 23rd of September 2010 [Pattaya Daily News]: At approximately 5:00am on Wednesday, Sergeant Major Noppadol Lunput, patrolling in south Pattaya with other officers, arrested an American national in possession of the class-4 restricted narcotic, marijuana.

According to a police statement, the man, Mr Jeffery Allen Storner [56], had announced his possession of the illicit narcotic by ‘waving’ the substance at police, taunting them to arrest him. He was later found to be in possession of approximately 1 gram of the illegal narcotic.

Officer confronted Mr. Storner, who appeared in an intoxicated state in front of a local 7-Eleven on Soi 15, behind Wat Chaimongkol. According to the report, Mr. Storner professed loudly that he was an American national and that it was legal to smoke and possess marijuana in the United States.

Despite Mr. Storner’s insistence that the substance should be made legal in Thailand, Sgt. Maj. Lunput arrested him, explaining that it is a prohibited substance in Thailand, before taking him to the Pattaya Police Station for further interrogation over his possession of the drug.
