Three Thai nationals were arrested in Bangkok this morning, January 24th, with 10 kilograms of processed cannabis and a handful of magic mushrooms after allegedly illegally producing cannabis cookies for sale.
The arrest followed the police investigation, revealing that there was cannabis trading through the LINE application in a group chat called “The hippy cookie”. An investigator then went undercover to lure in the purchase by ordering 5 grams of marijuana, with a price of 3,500 baht, on January 23rd at around 8:00 pm.
The sellers sent the goods by using a food delivery service, the officials, therefore, asked the delivery man to return the items. The arrest took place when a suspect came down to receive the returned items before the police began examination inside a room at a condominium in the Bangna District.
More than 13 foreign types of cannabis were discovered in a container weighing about 10.01 kilograms. Also found were 46 types of cannabis-processed food, such as chocolate, and 3 types of magic mushrooms, with a total weight of 60 grams.
One of the female suspects told the police that she was a former cookie seller and had a keen interest in cannabis. She then studied making cannabis cookies from online recipes and contacted a cannabis trader from a manufacturer in Thailand for ingredients before inviting her boyfriend and a friend to start the business.
She was responsible for cooking and contacting customers while her friend was finding ingredients and her boyfriend was delivering. They would gain about 1.2 million baht if all cookies were sold out. Currently, they had been running the illegal business for a year and received a good amount of monthly income from more than 100 regular customers.
All of them were taken to Bangna police station for legal proceedings. They were initially charged for illegally processing and distributing narcotic drugs.
