Police Crack Down on Laughing Gas (Nitrous Oxide)

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Thanks for the report, Captain Obvious

To me, what with the dodgy beach food and laughing gas, Silanoukville was just all shits and giggles.

when I first lived in Sihanoukville, about 3 years ago, they made serious efforts to clean up the image of the beach. All beach bars were made to shut off music and close down at midnight. someone came down to the old JJs and fired gunshots in the air, thats how far they went.

first thing, it's a stupid high. Secondly, without air mixed in at proper amounts it can be seriously damaging, granted you'd have to be huffin a line from a tank but still, do you want the stigma of "easy drug use" to be attached to you when you have ASEAN looming?

sometimes stupid shit oughta just be stopped. It's hard to take them seriously tho, when they let drinking and driving flourish.
MUCH easier to tackle the stupid shit backpacker kiddies do.

They could straighten up their police force, a huge task indeed, but more effective than this. Taking a few tanks from local backpacker bars .

Sihanoukville very much has straightened up their police force. As the new governor came in a lot heads rolled and a lot of people moved in with the intent of cleaning shit up.

That's why were seeing this, all of the recent drug busts, thieves getting nabbed, even the traffic police have started sending people to the police office to pay their fines.
