As we had announced in an article last year, vaping is clearly not welcome in Thailand. Unfortunately, after the arrest of four young people a few weeks ago for illegal sale of electronic cigarettes, today is a Swiss close to StattQualm who risk up to 5 years imprisonment.
SWITZERLAND RISKS UNTIL 5 YEARS OF PRISON TO SPEAK IN PUBLIC AND "IMPORT" PRODUCTS OF THE VAPE
According to StattQualm, a Swiss who was on holiday in Thailand was arrested on 26 last July for having public vaping. According to the modder He was arrested and then held in prison for six days in complete isolation without human contact and suffering degrading humiliation.".
It should be known that according to one law of December 2014If you own an e-cigarette you are liable to 5 years in prison and a fine of 4 times the value of the item. The import, sale and production of such an object and it is 10 years of imprisonment.
According to information reported by StattQualm: " Apparently, he is accused of having ejaculated in public, and more specifically, he would be accused of having imported vaping products. Of course, the Embassy, his family and friends, we try together to do everything we can to get him out of there as quickly as possible. But it is well known to be particularly complicated.".
From today, we can put Thailand on the blacklist for vapers. If you need to get there soon, we strongly advise against taking vaping equipment with you.
