Bruce my dear, did you need an edit button in order to add a link or in order to add extra bold print and italics?

Can you give us smileys too while you're at it Somtam. I sometimes feel a need to express quizzical eyebrows.

Err on second thoughts... maybe not. Imagine what Bruce would to do if he had smileys too! ;-)

I agree totally. Idiotic behaviour in that part of the world. Problem is the mixed messages sent out by different governments confuse people.Portugal-everything legal.Australia where some states let you grow your own marijuana.Then you get the other extreme, Barlow and Chambers executed in 1986 for smuggling grass.Does Malaysia still hang people for drugs.I remember the visa cards coming around before you landed there with the picture of the noose and 'DADA(drugs) IS DEATH.'printed in bold.It certainly got over the message for most people.Many years ago I was partial to smoking a bit of Thai grass, forget it these days the consequences don't bear thinking about. Yet I still smell the stuff in the air around bakpackers hostels in Bangkok.I advise them to get over the border to Cambodia if they like to smoke it.As at present the law there seems to be more relaxed.

In Thailand just don't do it - you're a fool if you do.
