PATTAYA-October 29, 2013 [Pattaya Daily News]:.- At 12.30 a.m. Mr. Sakchai Taenghor, the Amphur (Chief ‘Sheriff’ or Administrator) of Banglamung in the Chonburi Province, mobilized forces of more than 50-Territorial Defence officers together with officers of Excise Department of Chonburi , plus a police team from the Pattaya Police Station. Jointly, they inspected entertainment spots that were smuggling and selling herbal liquor or addictive stimulant tobacco, such as the types known as ‘Baraku’ or ‘Shisha’ (used in water pipe smoking), which commonly used in places all around Pattaya City and elsewhere.

Mr. Khomsan Aekkachai, (the Chonburi Provincial Governor) has commanded the officers of Amphur Banglamung to announce the ban on selling (or having in possession to sell) the addictive stimulant tobaccos or herbal liquors, such as the types known as ‘Baraku’ or ‘Shisha’ (used in water pipe smoking). These are sold in many entertainment spots all over Pattaya ad this operation is in accordance with the ‘Liquor Act’ of 1950 and the ‘Tobacco Act’ of 1966 and by issuing.

From inspecting in the entertainment spots in area of Walking Street in South Pattaya, which is an important tourism point in Pattaya, they found that most of the entertainment spots agreed to cooperate. However there are some shops still smuggling in these items to sell to the customers, so initially, the officers have warned them and also made records of their violations. This may have developed from a recent incident where a Japanese tourist was drugged with ‘Baraku’ and other substances, then robbed.

However, in spite of not wanting to cause unnecessary trouble for anyone, government officials will be strict in using the new regulations, so therefore Amphur of Banglamung will liaise with the Excise Department of Chonburi and other related organizations, such as the local police in the area. They will strictly and regularly inspect, so if they find anyone violating the new bans, the officers will decisively prosecute and submit the information to the Chonburi Provincial Governor to close these premises immediately for a 30-day period.
