Cannabis Shop in Rawai Ordered to Close for 30 Days


A cannabis shop in Rawai has been ordered to close for 30 days after they received complaints.

Officials led by the Mueang Phuket District Office Chief Mr. Pairoj Srilamoon and Chalong Police inspected a cannabis shop in Rawai.

A foreigner was found smoking cannabis and a second foreigner, who was not identified, showed up claiming to be the owner with a legal license to sell cannabis at the shop named ‘Cosmic Temple Vibes HQ’.

On the second floor cannabis was also being grown. A building next to the shop had been damaged by humidity and water was dripping into a bedroom and damaging the wall, which the unidentified building owner claimed was due to the cannabis being grown.

Mr. Pairoj told the Phuket Express that the cannabis shop owner is being accused of breaking the current rules and regulations by allowing people to smoke cannabis inside the shop.

Growing cannabis in the building and causing a disturbance are two other charges being considered.

It was not immediately clear if the original complaint against the cannabis shop had been filed by the neighbour who had suffered alleged damage.
