0.25 grams is so little its probably like dust. If she was a user n destroying her own life then send her to rehab. But she had a family n was not hurting anyone. 

0.25grams is not even worth anything at all to be a drug mule or risk anything for.

I would think she was framed. 

 

I post a pic of bullet powder as posting drugs would not be appropriate to have an idea of how little 0.25grams is.

it was 5mg

 

"According to the original police arrest statement seen by Spectrum, Yuyee was carrying 5mg of cocaine — about 12 baht worth based on current street value, and substantially less than a single line of the drug."

if the amount is under 100 grams

 

That means any amount of coke, from any detectable amount, say 0.5mg to 15000+ KG 

 

It's what's known as draconian drugs laws, massively disproportionate I agree, but that's the law of the land.

She couldn't care less about her children, knew the risks of being caught with cocaine, but still carried. Double her sentence.

Absolutely agree. Any responsible parent would not become involved in such antics. She could not have been working alone, who were her contacts and suppliers? Was her husband also involved in this?

 

Keep it off the streets, let her rot in jail along with her deadly substances.

disgraceful and ignorant post

You may think my comments are disgraceful and ignorant, but the law doesn`t side with your opinions. One reason I love Thailand more then my native UK, is because they don`t fanny around here, break the law, go to jail serve big time. If they can`t serve the time, then don`t commit a crime. How difficult can it be for people to stay clean in Thailand. If they can`t then who cares when the consequences of their actions falls on top of them like a ton of bricks.

Agreed. Geez I haven't been reading a lot of comments lately, but damn. Most ThaiVisa posters are still the same. High mighty sitting behind their computer. 

 

It's 0.2grams for personal use. Hardly worth 15 years in prison. A significant fine maybe, community service (which would be good in Thailand) but not jail. 

While other's drive unlicensed or drunk and kill 1 or multiple people in car accidents walk away with no more than a sorry, it's pathetic really. 

 

She's not a dealer, she's not selling. 

Remember the only difference between Alcohol and other 'hard' drugs is one is illegal the other isn't. The all ruin a heap of lives, cause violence, dependency and so on. Except 'weed', you'd be hard pressed to find the same amount of negative social consequences of that plant. (Note I don't do any 'drugs' and rarely drink, but I also believe in the choice for other people to do and deal with, the consequences of their own choices). 

 

Asia and their war on drugs....while running people over in the street is more acceptable. I'll never understand it....

 

This is not America, it's Asia .... and they are shit hot on anyone caught with drugs !

if it was 5mg then it is even less than 250mg, its like less than the grain of the pic i posted. the police probably had to wipe her suitcase clean and squeeze every rag with their strength since their milk drinking days to get that much.

These same reporters are the ones who don't know that an .11 caliber weapon is actually a .45 caliber weapon (which is roughly 11 mm).

 

5 mg or 250 mg. 15 years is ludicrous!

wow really? Thailand is a land of justice? That's something new I've learn here.

 

the reports of the elites breaking laws, killing innocents with their cars and not seeing a day of jail while testing positive for drugs and alcohol in their system must have slip your eyes.

the reports of children of high ranking policemen, and mafias beating up, shooting and killing others for some petty quarrels must have slip your notice.

 

How difficult can it be for ppl to stay clean in Thailand? i think more then 80% is probably drinking alcohol everyday and of which a handful are probably driving around recklessly and causing traffic accidents

You think taking cocaine is the same as having a bottle of beer?

 

 

this is a very intelligent comment, with that amount of drugs she could not be a risk for the public, but with your beer you could easily kill and get away free... how can people think this is acceptable is beyond me.

freaking 5mg is like dust, it could have been blown onto her suitcase and they would have to forensics CSI dust the whole suitcase to get that amount lmao.

Yeah!

 

I've probably sneezed 5 mg of coke the day after, back in the 1980's when I experimented.

 

Blame it on Eric Clapton.

..3-20 years or a fine of 60,000 – 400,000 Baht

 

if you are caught with a small amount of drugs (using the above example), you will likely be allowed to pay the low end of the fine at the police station.  so about 60,000thb (note the 'or' in the sentence quoted, not 'and').  the longer you/or your financial situation drags it out, the fine increases.  then, assuming you go to trial, you risk the jail sentence part of it.  as i said in another recent thread, it is best to make a payment as soon as possible.

 

what i don't understand is why this woman didn't make a payment ?  she is thai, she knows the drill.  i know she was not really taken in for drugs, it was for messing with the wrong people.  however, i read about a fine somewhere and i think it was 400,000 or so.  and she'd be free.  then later on i saw a fine amount of over a million baht.  just speculating but she may have passed on making the smaller payment and then ended up with a bigger one.  a million baht is not chump change but when you are looking at a prison sentence in thailand - and you have a husband and four kids - i'd hope you/your family would make arrangements for the payment to be made so you are free to go.  the husband is a foreigner so one would think his chances of raising the money would be alot better than hers.

 

a real sad story for this woman.
