A 58 year old real estate developer, living in Koh Samui for 22 years, is facing some trouble with the police for his ‘medicinal’ innovations in the kitchen.
Police have arrested and charged Gary Coughlan with drug offenses after they noticed he was acting a little ‘unusual and erratic’ this morning (Wednesday). He later tested positive for drug use.
Khaosod English reports, that when questioned by the police, he admitted to having tom yum goong shrimp soup infused with cannabis, apparently he praised its benefits for good sleep.
Coughlan also told police that he had obtained the marijuana from a Thai friend.
Thailand has recently legalised medical marijuana, yet unauthorised use still remains illegal and culprits face jail time up to one year.
Judging by the look on Gary’s face we can assume he was happy with the results of his kitchen experiments.
