    By The Nation


    A 14-year-old boy, known as Brother Kit, has sold Thai-styled crepes with a variety of fillings in Pakkret district of Nonthaburi near Bangkok for many years. He is known by his customers for his smile and concentration.

    Now an interview posted on the Wongnai food website, praising his independence and hard work, has won him national fame. His mother has sore ankles, making it difficult to walk, and his father works elsewhere for a low wage. 

    Kit starts work at 5am when he visits a market near Pakkret pier to sell deep-fried dough sticks before school. He returns to the market after school to sell the crepes until 11pm.

  3. Govt pharmaceutical agency officially opens first legal greenhouse to grow cannabis



    Grown inside a greenhouse of the Government Pharmaceutical Organisation, these plants are the first legal batch of cannabis in Asean region.

    THE COUNTRY’S first legal cannabis plantation was officially opened by Government Pharmaceutical Organisation (GPO) yesterday, as the authorities work toward developing cannabis-based medicines that are affordable for all patients.

  4. Shock as ‘grief-stricken’ woman arrested for husband’s murder



    A 60-YEAR-OLD WOMAN, whose grief over her husband’s murder in Ayutthaya on February 8 won her widespread sympathy, has been arrested and accused of being the mastermind behind the killing.

    Prapassorn Thoprayoon admitted her part in the murder because her husband, whom she had been with for more than two decades, had become "abusive and subjected her to domestic violence in recent years”, national police deputy commissioner Pol General Chalermkiat Srivorakan said on Wednesday.

     House builder Thawat Suksangkan, 63, was shot dead in his pick-up truck by two men on a motorcycle while he was taking his wife to sell goods at a school in Ayutthaya’s Nakhon Luang district on the morning of February 8.

  7. Alleged leader of school attack makes tearful apology, says alcohol to blame



    THE MAN accused of leading Sunday’s attack on students and teachers sitting an exam near a monk ordination ceremony has made a tearful apology and said alcohol was partly responsible for his behaviour.

    On hearing that the man was blaming drunkenness, Theerapat Khahawong, coordinator of the Youth Network against New Drinkers, called for a charge to be laid against those involved of violating the Alcohol Control Act’s ban on drinking inside a temple. A deputy national police chief later confirmed that a charge of drinking in the temple was indeed among three additional offences yesterday filed against all 24 defendants.

    Wanlop “Ake Fai” Nuchfang, 32, is accused of leading a 50-strong group of guests attending a monk ordination ceremony that allegedly stormed into Bangkok’s Wat Sing Secondary School on Sunday as students sat university-entrance exams. The raid led to alleged assaults and property damage.

    With particularly high temperatures predicted this summer, the Disease Control Department has warned the public about the danger of five food- and water-borne diseases, including diarrhoea.

    It recommends that people observe a hygienic way of life through “Kin Ron” (eating hot meals), “Chon Klang” (using a serving spoon) and “Lang Meua” (washing hands), in order to prevent such illnesses.

    Department director-general Dr Suwanchai Wattanayingcharoen on Monday said a particularly hot climate helped accelerate the growth of germs and bacteria that can cause food-borne and water-borne diseases, namely diarrhea, food poisoning, dysentery, cholera and typhoid.

  13. Foreign couple photographed drinking atop historic Chiang Mai wall

    By The Thaiger


    Chiang Mai, tourists and historic sites just don’t seem to mix well. This time, two people are in trouble after they were photographed having a drink sitting casually on top of one of Chiang Mai’s historic walls.

    The Chiang Mai News Facebook page on Monday called on the authorities to take action. As usual, netizens saw the tourists’ behaviour as inappropriate. 

    But many say that, rather than snapping photos and doing nothing, they should have told the couple to get down and alerted them to the sign forbidding such a cultural faux pas.

  22. Beware revealing graphic details of charcoal suicides, media is warned

    By The Nation



    FOLLOWING a significant number of recent charcoal-burning suicides in Thailand, the Public Health Ministry’s Mental Health Department is urging the media to avoid giving too many details of how the deaths occurred, out of fear that such reports could lead to copycat deaths.

    There were three such incidents on Monday and Tuesday of this week alone: two led to the person dying and the third saw a man being rescued just in time.

    Mental Health Department chief Dr Kiattiphum Wongrajit said yesterday that reporting of suicides had recently been more frequent, especially those committed by burning charcoal. He said some people, being repeatedly exposed to fine details of such suicide methods and pictures in the media, might resort to attempting to kill themselves in the same way.

  24. Cannabis : Clear guidelines ‘will attract amnesty seekers’

    By The Nation



    IT WILL take solid assurances to persuade current cannabis users to come forward for amnesty, a prominent academic told the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) yesterday.

    “Patients will be worried about registering for the amnesty if they still have concerns that they may not be able to use cannabis later. If constraints and conditions set by authorities are unclear, underground users of cannabis won’t come forward,” said Panthep Phuaphongphan, dean of Rangsit University’s Institute of Integrative Medicine and Anti-Ageing.

    He was speaking at a focus-group discussion held by the FDA. The event aimed to gather opinions on three draft subordinate laws on providing amnesty for cannabis users and possessors.
