Police broke up what the Nation Thailand calls a “drug fueled rave” at a home in Bangkok’s Thong Lor area, arresting 10 people for allegedly possessing and consuming ketamine. The suspects, ages 21 to 51, also face charges for allegedly violating the Emergency Decree by holding a gathering that risks the spread of Covid-19.

Thong Lor Police raided the home around 1am this morning. Reports do not say how much ketamine was found at the scene, or if the suspects were drug tested.

Under Thailand’s Psychotropic Substances Act, possession and consumption of ketamine carries a penalty of up to 5 years in prison and a fine of up to 100,000 baht.

    10 people make a rave?

    Ketamin makes it a drug-fueled rave?

    I sense the spokesperson is dabbling in hyperbole.

    The Lieger and other media outlets are the greatest advocates of authoritarianism I’ve ever seen in my life. Shame shame shame…

    10 people going down the K hole is hardly a “drug-fueled rave”. I suppose that next, we will hear about “Reefer Madness” and “Cocaine Fiends”!

      By definition, must be a crowd of at least 100 white ppl for it to be a rave.
