Weed in Cambodia

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.

Read the bottom of the outside menus at Happy Herbs or Pink Elephant.


From memory, it says something along the lines of 'some of the ingredients can get you intoxicated'.

I've been to Pink Elephant many times over the years and read their menu often.... Can't remember reading that!! Not that it may not be there, it may be, but I've forgotten! LOL!

When my old dad wanted to try a happy shake, they told him it was off the menu. I knew it wasn't true but didn't push the point since I wasn't really sure it was a good idea - first stone at 80 yrs old, but he wanted to try it. :roll:
Don't know why they refused him - too old or something?

Why on earth would you refuse an 80yo a herb shake? Hasn't he earned the pleasure?

Just didn't think it was worth making a scandal. He's had 80 years to get his shit together and try it.
