Housewife arrested for growing marijuana in Hot

A 42-year old housewife was arrested in Hot yesterday, July 23 for growing two marijuana plants.

The arrest took place at a home in Moo 12 Bo Luang at around 10:30 a.m.

Police found that Mrs. Nuanchan Chanatin had two marijuana “trees” weighing 35g grams in pots in her backyard.

While the size of the “trees” may not seem remarkable, the charges against her, however, are. Along with possession, Mrs. Chanatin was accused of dealing marijuana to local “teenagers who are addicted to drugs.” Given the state and size of the trees, it’s not clear how or in what amounts.
