Undercover water police on April 30, 2008, managed to arrest a couple near Ambassador City Hotel, Jomtien, who had been dealing ganja for a year in the local market, along with their vegetables. The culprits confessed that their profits from the ganja, at Bt2,000 per kilogram, were far higher than those on vegetables, which is why they had engaged in the trade.

Both culprits confessed to buying the drug from a Mr. Benz at a house at Baan Tung-glom-Tanman, for Bt5,000 baht per kilo to be resold for Bt7,000 baht, earning Bt2,000 profit in the process.
