Homeless Norwegian Arrested with Marijuana in Siem Reap

Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

I never picked you for a rectitudalist KingK.
sticking broomsticks up peoples bums, all the way, so they stand up straight and become good upright citizens.

"Just behave yourself!"
LOL

Soorry K, 'never liked a broomstick up my bum.
But, if you get a big tent and move around the country preaching this stuff, i am sure you will get heaps of straight backed, pinch-faced rectitudalists to join you in singing hymns to the glory of Just Behaving Myself.

Well, its your right to disobey the laws in your own country where yoiu are a citixen and have a vote. it is your duty when in another country to respect their vote and their laws. i love the westerners who think they have the right to go anywhere in the world, totally disregard all the laws on drugs, drink diving, prostitution and then go home and complain about the damn foereigners in theire country breaking their countries rules. It seems to m there needs to be research inwhy pot causes outbreaks of extreme hypocrisy amongst its devotees and worhsippers
Pot causes outbreaks of hypocrisy? Haha. Sobriety apperently gives a guy a big chip on his shoulder and a bad case of rage.

I sure don't see weed smoking as a road to hypocrisy.
Usually, it is the tea totalling stuffed shirt who thinks you should not wear shorts in the tropics is the hypocrite.
I, for one, don't make it a rule to obide by laws in my home country and then go apeshit in another.
I went apeshit in the USA throughout my younger years and was much better behaved in foreign lands..namely..Mexico..Jamaica..
I like to keep a low profile and have a beautiful Khmer lady who is not a partier.
I agree with the folks who said ..go home..keep it mellow...smoke your weed and don't make waves.
I am hoping 2020 is my best year yet on Cambodia.
Happy New Year!!!!

I do apologise for being able to remain sober and enjoy life. Sometimes i really wish i was dependent on narcotics so i could join your club, but I dont need them to feel good

He is lucky. The police found him before more dire things happened to him in his state. Unlucky he had the small bag. Just a casualty of a good night out. Better he goes home. He has his passport and hopefully his ticket. The police will sweep it under the rug. $100 magistrates fine.

If I remember the OP, this guy got wasted and was found passed out on the floor of a pagoda. Fair enough, some monks were concerned about the unconscious barang, and called the police. He had a bag of weed in his pocket.
He wasn't set up. He set himself up. Bad things can happen to good people, but sometimes you make these things happen yourself.
