Bangkok, Thailand

Legislation

Marijuana is illegal in Thailand, and so is any related activity. Marijuana isn’t treated as lightly in Thailand as it is in the United States. In fact, if you get caught, the cops will treat you as if you got caught with Heroin.

Law Enforcement

Strict especially if your a tourist – I lived in Thailand for 8 years and I smoked pot for 6 of those years. I have been arrested 3 times in Bangkok and weed is no joking matter with the cops. I had maybe 20 grams and was told I’d be in prison for 10 years with a smile. Cops are not paid well in Thailand so I was lucky to get corrupted cops each time and paid my way out. Let me put it this way, they have a World Cup of soccer in the jails there because there are so many tourist caught with drugs. The best way is to go in the south in the islands and there are not many cops there. As for asking in Khoa San… that is a stupid idea. They will want to make money off it and than fuck you over with cops so everyone makes money. I have had a cop pull a sack of weed from his pocket threatening me to put it on me if I was to come back to that area.

Marijuana import, export or possession are strictly prohibited.

In the past year the police have been raiding bars and forcing people to give urine samples and drug tests. They are crazy. Pot is a lot less available and a lot more expensive, not to mention other drugs. This situation will hopefully correct itself soon enough.

Where to Buy Marijuana in Bangkok

Read the NEWEST comments for the latest information!!!

“I read a lot on the internet about “hot spots” to buy weed. To follow any of that advice, the people there are hella scared to even pronounce the word “marijuana” fearing that the cops might hear them. As a tourist, I spent a few days asking middle age people for the “goods.” Finaly, I came up with a solution. THIS PLAN WORKS. I got in a “tuk tuk,” with a young driver. At a red light I kindly asked him if he could get me some….success. He dropped me of for about 6 minutes, came back with 4 or so grams and took me back to my hotel.”

Other Advice:

  • Go to Soi 33. Go down the Soi until you reach the parking lot. There will be an old lady there who will sell you any amount of marijuana. Also, go to Soi 26 all the way at the very end of the Soi there will be a hotel. The motorcycle taxi drivers outside the hotel will sell you any drug. You will have to wait a while before you get it. But theres a bar in the hotel and a 7/11 outside so you can kill time.
  • Locate the street called TROK MAYOM, its a backstreet to Khao Sarn Rd.
  • LOTS of reggae bars, ask any of them… OR ask at the clothes shop located in the middle of that street… just look of for stoners 😀 heheh
  • Motorcycle taxis
  • Kawa-San street, home to many of Bangkok’s guest houses, is also the center of Bangkok pot. When walking around Kawa-san, ask any of the guest house clerks or owners, who will either sell you the weed their selves, or point you in the right direction.
  • There is a very good massage parlor called Darling close to Sukhumvit on Soi 12. Go there and if you lucky they will get you a pre rolled pack of 20 joints.
  • In the islands, it is even easier to purchase pot. For example, the Bob-Marley restaurant in Kopan-gan sells pot as a menu item.
  • Nana = fail too risky expensive n garbage weed. Khao san I beleive we might get lucky there but of course only if u got them balls!
  • Let me warn you, there are many scammers out there that just troll this site, and after visiting here a few times, you should be able to swift thru them and be on your way. However if you read all threads carefully, you will see the difference and could get lucky. For tourist you can try any Tuk Tuk driver in BKK area, young, and preferability have a ganja leave on his Tuk Tuk somewhere. Just smile and ask nicely, but not loudly, you should be set for your stay here.

“The best way to find weed is to go out and ask every White or really Black person you meet. Never buy dope off of Thai people (No offence, na khrub!) without a referral from an Expat FIRST! If I was Thai, and all of you fools (multicoloured monkies) were coming to my country and making a mess, I would GLADLY help the cops and get your ass busted for a few extra bucks. Wouldn’t you?”

Tips for buying:

  1. Don’t give them the money until they give you the weed. If you give them the money first they will rat you out to the police and make “double money.”
  2. Don’t be scared to negotiate the price. Thai are nice people, and they will always drop the price to about 1/2 of what they originaly said.
  3. Watch out for the POLICE!!!

Marijuana Prices and Types

2000 baht should get you a ripe old amount wrapped in newspaper and very fresh. 500 baht will get you an amazing amount as well of the same stuff. Never pay more than 2000. Never pay less than 200-300.

Mostly ganja, but nepalese hashish is also available but you need a contact. Local weed usually grown in the northeast of Thailand is sold. The local weed has is not very potent, and sometimes contains seeds.

Better of going to the islands 😀 but for the time in BKK is fine 😉

In Pratunam, near the markets and the hotel Indra Regent you will find what you are after but be sure to be discreet. I lived in BKK for 8 months and I always just went here for my ganja supply rather than giving any local dealer my address or phone number. Outside this tourist hotel I mentioned, towards the main road, you will see (after 6pm) a group of tuk-tuk drivers waiting around for passengers and just chatting jovially to one another, or possibly even drinking thai whisky (sangsom) Ask any of these guys for ‘ganja’. They are the same guys who hang there any day of the week so you ain’t getting ripped off here. The way it works is they will call their buddy who will be a cab driver (I will not give names or cab numbers) they will arrive 10 mins later driving a green and yellow ‘meter’ taxi. You will get into the taxi (the guy that organised him will tell you when the driver gets their and which taxi he is in) and once you are in and doors closed, he will give you the ganja. You don’t need to take a ride anywhere.

ALWAYS ESTABLISH THE PRICE BEFORE BUYING ANYTHING IN THAILAND, same goes for ganja. You should expect to pay as a tourist, approx 1500 baht for 5 grams of compressed local grown outdoor weed (without seeds or stems more often than not). Pot is consistently much cheaper in Bangkok then it is at any of the major tourist islands eg. Phuket, Phi Phi

Thai people are easy going, friendly and genuine. Always remember to smile (even if you are annoyed or bothered) and they will dig even further to help you.

Keep the ganja away from police unless you happen to be carrying around $1500 – $2000 USD or the equivalent in thai baht to use as a bribe. If you should get caught, as happens, if you are going to bribe, do it straight away before he calls his mates over and tell him that the ‘gift’ is only for him. Otherwise you could end up paying 4-6 thousand US to keep his buddies quiet.

I am talking from experience. If you get busted, be quick and firm with your offer. You have a 90% chance of enjoying the rest of your stay. Otherwise, think Bangkok Hilton.

Please stop taking pictures with the tiny parkinglot shrines! Those are for prayers! Not for your ass to lean up against and take selfies.

another reporter added: ” Went to Pattaya twice. First time, I met a

TukTuk driver who took me all over the back roads of Pattaya to a little shanty town where I hooked up with a pretty shady dealer. While I was waiting, I took a few hits off a bamboo bong and talked with a Thai musician. Then an old topless woman with no teeth and bleeding gums came up to us and started yelling. Really trippy. David Lynch like. Anyway, I came away with a nice size brick for a good price. The next time I went, I kept getting bad weed from the Jetski guys. They try to rip you off and give you little for a lot. Make sure you get a brick. if not, it’s not worth it. Ended up picking up a young hooker and after we finished, she gave me the best deal. ”

Chiang mai Marijuana Prices: 2000 Baht ($50) for 2.5 grams. Bargaining is a must. the more you buy the more generous they are with quantity.

Where to buy marijuana in Phi Phi Island: I was staying in Phuket. I headed to Phi Phi island where u can find weed eaily.

PiPi island has 2 sides of beach. One with a lot of people and another with less people. If u go to the latter, there is a guy who rents little boats. As u proceed to him, he’ll ask you if u want some smoke.

If u can’t find him, don’t worry. Ask any white guy who looks like a pot head.He’s tell u the right spot. That’s what I did. I asked a random white guy with a spiky hair style. He showed me the way to get good weed.

In Thailand, It’s really easy as cake to find weed.If u go to some place with a lot of people, I’m 100% sure that u can find it.

You will see a group of longtail boats lined up waiting for tourists. Approach any boat driver and they will tell you which boat number to see and they will fix you up with a good deal of weed that they have just picked up from nearby Krabi.

Ask the right local and you will be in business in no time at all.

Most maintenance employees at hotels and resorts will also be able to assist.

Phuket Island, Thailand

Legislation

Cannabis is illegal in Thailand but the police in Phuket Island is fairly corrupt.

It wouldnt be advisable not to smoke in public or in dodgey back streets, but smoking on the beach or hotel balcony should be kept discrete.

Another reporter added: “You definitely DO NOT want to get caught with weed in Thailand. The cops love to give you a hard time, and like most Thais, they love the smell of Farang money.”

Law Enforcement

Law enforcement generally corrupt, can be bought off for around 20,000B if you run into trouble, such as, possession, smoking in public, and getting narc’d out.

Another reporter added: “Stay the hell away from them. Be polite and smile a lot :)”

Where to Buy Marijuana in Phuket Island

If you are in Phuket Island, for a consistent score, head to Patong Beach where there are jetski rentals and parasailing. Be cool and ask the guys renting out the equipment to hook you up.

“Patong Soi Eric the Regee beer bar”. If you’re there – you surely know what that means…

Another one from patong bay: “Not from people who wrap their pot in tons of plastic and burn the edges. It will be a very little chance that it really is marijuana. Look for the mid 20s people who work on the beach.”

Another reporter added: “Taxi drivers and tuk tuk drivers are the way to go. I recommend renting a cab for several hours.”

January 2016 submission: “Chians Civilian reggae bar. at the end of a quiet lane way of sawatdirak rd. Find rayaburi hotel and turn in.

500 thb gets you a massive spliff of good weed. Ok for 6 people.

These guys really took care of me. After a long day drinking on the beach I passed out in the bar alone. Woke up with all my belongings and virginity intact with these guys nursing me. Cannot recommend enough.”

Phuket Island Marijuana Prices

An expensive 3000B for about 4-5 grams of shitty brick weed. But it’s good if you’re bud-starved.

another reporter added; “300Tb = 1.5g of thai stick. THC about 6 – 12 %”

Another reporter informed us of “1000TB for 10 grams”

and also: “I paid 1000 baht for about 5-7 grams of compressed outdoor sativa. It was absolutely seedless and plenty potent. It comes from the north of Thailand from what I hear. The guys who got it for me threw in a pack of Rizla Blues, and I rolled up a 3 gram spliff for us (of THEIR bud). I got reallllly high, and they complimented my rolling skills. :)”

Types of Marijuana

Thai Stick is the most normal type of weed in Phuket.

You should also be able to find low quality hash or as one reported Nepalese Temple Balls.

Sinsemilla Thai outdoor ganja. Good stuff!

More Information

Before embarkin I thought id have no pot during the whole trip cuz ive heard bad rumours about se asia and drugs. But once I got to phuket, thailand, I thought I should give gettin it a try. So I asked around – mostly vendors on the street. And within a few minutes I was heading to a locals house on the back of a scooter. We got to his gaff which was in pretty poor and run down shanty town. I walked with him into his house and imeadiately smelled pot. I found 3 people sittin on the floor toking on a massive bamboo hole. They greeted me with a lot of friendliness. I sat myself down on the floor and was offered the bong which I toked for a while. Another of the guys started emptying out a cig and making a secret agent which he then gave to me 😀 after a while I was offered a ridiculous amount of brick weed (about 2 grams) for an exp ensive 1000 bath (about 20 us dollars). The next day I thought id try again so I asked some blokes renting out jetskis on the beach. One of them went to get another guy and then came back with a bag of thai stick with about 5 grams in it for only 300 bath – 6 euros/dollars!! this stuff also tasted great. After having smoked it I tried again and a this time a diff jetski renter took me to his house and gave me some more yummy thai stick. This time I got about 5 grams for 500 bath. So..

I can’t be complaining.

Koh Phangan, Thailand

Smoking tolerance level [1= very illegal 5=virtually legal]: 4.5

Legislation: Cannabis is illegal in Thailand but the police in Koh Phangan is fairly corrupt.

It wouldnt be advisable not to smoke in public or in dodgey back streets, but smoking on the beach or hotel balcony should be kept discrete.

Law Enforcement: It’s easy to find weed in Koh Phangan. It’s the party island of Thailand and drugs is all around. Watch out though. You could be in serious trouble if you get caught by the wrong cop. Mostly you can get away with a bribe. This could vary between Thai Bath 10,000 and 25,000.

Where to Buy Marijuana in Koh Phangan: Just northwest of Tongsala you find a little town called Woktum. There is a place there called Amst*rdam Bar. It’s great and has the best sunset on the island and probably the world. Another good place to buy is also in the north called the Reggea Bar and is in Salad Beach. In the partytown Haddrin it’s also around, but you will pay more then at other places.

Another report added: The main beach where the full moon dance party is held on Haadrin has a little bar that sells weed. It’s all the way at the far end of the beach (to the left if you are facing the water). It’s located high up on the cliffs so you have to walk up lots of stairs to get to it. When I asked at the bar they sold me a bag with perhaps 5g or more of commercial grade pot for only 500 bat. There were people smoking spliffs openly in the bar.

Otherwise, what many people do is ask the owner of the guesthouse they are staying in for weed. It will take a little while for them to get it, but many are willing to sell it. One beach guesthouse I stayed at even had bongs that the owner allowed people to use. But there’s also a rumor that some guesthouse owners may tip you off to the corrupt police, who might bust into your room and shake you down for a bribe to keep you out of jail for the pot they find.

Koh Phangan Marijuana Prices: Prices vary between 500 and 1000 Bath for a package containing 5 to 10 grams of good Thai weed. Watch out though. They could have weed that has a high chemical level, because of used chemicals in the production process.

More information: If you want to get some good prices don’t stay in Haadrin. Rent a motorcycle and drive north…
