Police in Bangkok arrested 3 people for allegedly making cannabis cookies and selling them through the messaging application LINE under a chat group called “The Hippy Cookie.” Police raided a condominium room in the Bang Na district and seized 13 “foreign types” of cannabis, 46 food products made with cannabis and 3 types of hallucinogenic mushrooms.

Using the LINE messaging app, the suspects allegedly sold cannabis and cannabis food products. The suspects allegedly sent the cannabis to buyers using a food delivery service.

An investigator joined the chat group and posed as a buyer, ordering 5 grams of cannabis for 3,500 baht. When the cannabis was sent through the food delivery service, police asked the driver to return the package to the suspects. Police say a suspect came down to receive the returned package. Investigators then searched the suspect’s condominium room.

One of the female suspects allegedly told the police that she used to sell cookies (regular cookies), adding that she has an interest in cannabis. She then studied how to make cannabis cookies and contact cannabis suppliers in Thailand before starting the illegal business with her boyfriend and a friend. She allegedly told police she started the business a year ago and has more than 100 regular customers.

The suspects were charged with illegally processing and distributing narcotic drugs. Parts of the cannabis plant with high amounts of the psychoactive component tetrahydrocannabinol, such as the buds, are still classified in Thailand as a Category 5 narcotic.

    Police spent time on a peaceful and harmless activity that should not be illegal. Seems like a big waste.

      It’s illegal and a criminal offence.

      Do the police decide what should be illegal or not in your country?

        You’re like a bloodhound for sniffing out the stupidest take. Rain, wind, fog, nothing will dissuade you from missing the point and finding some irritating and useless way to consider any given situation.

        At no point did he say that ‘police decide what should be illegal or not’. Do you know how bureaucratic systems work at all? How about the English language? My guess is you do but have just chosen to be a pedantic twat, your knee-jerk MO.

      I agree with you Brian, it is all a superficial game going on, with so many truly damaging laws being broken, to the environment topping the list, by outsiders as well as locals that effect everyone, this is just an easy ‘bust’ with something trivial that does little more than to justify ones post providing a sense of job security….Now if we care to get into the subject of the crazy drug Yaba used by a good majority of peoples we can then get down to some real business of concern.

    Hope they learned their lesson. Never pick up the return order from your first customer.

    Thai people prefer ice. Much cheaper and easier to smuggle.

    As soon as someone says something to back him up, Mister John always seems to comment again just to make sure everyone is aware of the “i told you im right”. He cannot keep quiet, just HAS to make that one word comment. This is a slightly psychotic trait. I only say this because Mister John seems to be in every comment section for every article which leaves an imprint in my mind. Mister John is very famous now.

    Somebody apparently bought an overcooked bad batch of “Hippy Cookies” and failed to get refund.

    The not so happy customer that reported the Cannabis Cookie Chef to the Quality Control Cookie Police probably should have ordered this happy snack from Lazada or Ali-Express to get money back guarantee.
