Riverside tuktuk driver arrested for drug dealing

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.

The first time I went to Heart of Darkness in 1999 it was just a small double-front unit, and while there were a few local women allowed in with customers mostly it was just whities. There was fuck all else around at the time, but gradually it became popular with rich locals. That was all great except when it wasn't so great, some awful things went down there. There was an English chick who got glassed by some local chaps because she had the cheek to jump on their seat and ask the DJ to put on some tune. Which brings me to another point. I don't remember much about the music when I went there in 1999. I remember they played "Holiday in Cambodia" which was actually surprised to hear but mostly it was just ambient background music. That had totally changed by the time I got back there, it was all Mambo 5 and Vengaboys. And nastiness.

Fixed it for 'em.

Seriously, the war on drugs is a waste of time, money and lives at the expense of citizens the world over. The only people who get their rocks off on it are the politicians and the pigs; the control freak motherfuckers of the world.

In a progressive manner, it would be great if someone could educate these uneducated sellers of drugs so that they don't make any more problems that affect non-users, the tourist who are not partakers and the business owners surrounding the area but also get to profit from the ones who are interested. Discretion is key, and they should understand this fact. Union Square in NYC is a prime example of a 'good' market.

Drugs and shitheads are not going away, and by shitheads, I mean the drug sellers, the cops, and the politicians.

The real crime here is expecting people to part with their hard earned for such rubbish gear. Probably called it "skunk" too.

Rolled by last night on the scooter and got offered weed. Someone needs to educate these pinheads on the subject of subtlety.
The pinheads and the pothead. 2 bloody barang passing round an endless supply of pot spliffs last night on 51. Really pissing off the non potheads. Then a gendarmerie patrol went buy on a bike :-) next tike I think I will invite the gendarms for a beer and split the fine with them
Snitchin is just wrong!
Blowing pit in my face is nit jyst wrobg, its illegal. If you cannit do the time dont commit the crime
In Cambodia? Crime us related to punishment?
Moral high horse and all of that.
Smoking around on your old unlicencened honda is illegal " and i have to breathe it".
So its cool to be a grass?

well it seems to be cool to smoke grass, maybe being a grass should be cool :beer1:
for your information I do not ride around on an unlicensed Honda, my bike is fully licensed as am I. but if I did , the Honda would probably produce less smoke than your lexus or tuk tuk. Pot calling kettle black
secondly, its not a moral high ground at all. I am entitled to protect myself from the ill effects of your addiction. I do not blow cigarette smoke in your face, or pour beer down your throat so please show me the same courtesy with regard to your drug of choice. As far as I am concerned you can take whatever drugs you like in your own home but you do not have the right to inflict it on others in public places. I assume in your world it is also fine to blow heroin or ice into other peoples faces as well, and drive home drunk or DUI, but it is wrong for the people you hurt on the way home to complain. FYI some people are allergic to pot and it causes unpleasant side effect like vomiting and is very bad for young children, but potheads don't give a shit about inflicting on innocent bystanders. In my book a grass is someone who calls the police for something which is not causing any harm. Where is your moral line? is it grassing to report a drunk driver? how about a tax dodger? Or a rapist?

Dont have a lexus. Not even a moto. Not "making you breathe" anything.
I would guess, if you live in PP, your lungs match those of a moderate smoker, from your daily intake of fumes. My goodness! You make your children breathe that shit? All the time?
Seems like you come from a fairly uptight place and are getting all abusive and name calling.
I wonder if you have ever tried the devil's lettuce yourself or if you're just repeating what your mum told you?

So you go everywhere by foot, or take a smokey tuk tuk. Ine way or another all of us cause pollution by traffic as we move around. in Uk government now admits for every 2 people who die of smoking related illness 1 dies of pollution related illness.
I have tried pot. Don't like it, prefer beer. I believe you have the right to take whatever yu like but not inflict it on me. I have also seen people go from recreational users to chain smokers and disappear down the gutter same as alcoholics. You are welcome to take whatever you like, just do not force it on me. That is not being uptight. I am not rying to ban it or stop you enjoying it, I just do not want it in my face. I saw a lovely documentary las tnight which perfectly explaind the stupidity of potheads. they have a smoking day in Denver when the park is available for all the potty people to go and get high together as a social occasion. But you are not allowed to smoke cigareetes. hypocrites or what? And they were al so laid back that they started shooting each other over who had the right to see pot at what place. fantastic
