The high incidence of drug use and addiction in Thailand is not new. But a recent discovery at a Thai temple has left authorities concerned after every single one ot the monks living in it failed to clear as narco test.
The incident occurred on Monday at a temple in Phetchabun province’s Bung Sam Phan district where four monks and an abbot were subjected to a drug test and each one tested positive for methamphetamine.
The monks were immediately defrocked and taken to a local dedication amd health centre for receiving rehabilitation therapy. New monks will soon be sent to the temple, which has now been left devoid of any monks, local district official Boonlert Thintapthai informed the villagers, as per a report in NDTV.
Thailand’s drug problem became a debated issue in the country just a month ago following the disturbing nursery killings which led to tho Thai authorities amping up the so-called war on drugs and brought forth stringent gun regulations. The killing at a daycare centre had left 36 dead including 24 children.
Wow. Doesn’t it disturb their peaceful vibes I would think
