On January 26, 2013, at 2:30 p.m., the arrests of three suspects in a drug bust was announced by Pol. Maj. Gen. Prajuab Wongsuk, Commander, section 5; Pol. Col. Thawatchai Phongwiwatthanachai, Superintendent, section 5; together with the officers of public health, Chiang Mai province.

The three suspects were identified as Mr. Phat or O Nilkul, age 26, from Tambon Sanklang, Amphur Sankamphaeng, Chiang Mai province; Mr. Nutthavuth or Saem Torkan, age 25, from Tambon Luangtai, Amphur Ngao, Lamparng province; and Mr. Phattaraphol or Boong Thamphawat, age 24, from Tambon Pa-daed, Amphur Meuang, Chiang Mai province

Evidence seized by police included 27.16 grams of ya-ice, 10 Ecstasy pills, 3 bottles of K drugs, and 10 bottles of GHB drugs. The total value of the seized drugs was estimated at more than 200,000 THB. Police also seized 2 sets of drug-consuming equipment and 2 digital scales.

During questioning, Mr. Phat confessed that he sold drug alone, but the other two suspects were friends who came by to consume drugs together. He told police he used to be a government officer, but his salary is not enough to pay living expenses. So he resigned to sell drugs by smuggling to sell ya-ice and Ecstasy pills for a long time.

Lately he has been selling a lot of GHG, which very popular to use nowadays, he said. The drug can be used by someone who desires another man, so he can mix the drug with water, and let the man drink it, which will stimulate his sexual desire, and later cause him to pass out.

Mr. Phat said he has used GHB successfully on many men, so he orders a lot to sell to customers. Gay people always buy the GHB drug, said Mr. Phat, who orders his GHB from a vendor in Ratchada, Bangkok.

He added that the GHB is usually used by men to drug women in entertainment centers, in order to rape them after they pass out. Pol. Maj. Gen. Prajuab said this new type of drug is very dangerous because it has no color or smell, and is very efficient in its effects.

There are cases of men drugged with GHB by women and having their property stolen. Victims include both males and females. Many who wake up afterwards do not notify the police, because the presence of the drug cannot be detected in the body.

GHB has become very popular and is used a lot by the club goers in entertainment centers, he said. So the police commander would like to warn people, both male and female, to beware of the dangers of GHB.
