Thailand

===Drugs===
Thailand has '''extremely strict drug laws''' and your foreign passport is not enough to get you out of legal hot water. Possession and trafficking offenses that would merit traffic-ticket misdemeanors in other countries can result in '''life imprisonment''' or even '''death''' in Thailand. Police frequently raid nightclubs, particularly in [[Bangkok]], with full body searches on all patrons. [[Ko Pha Ngan]]'s notoriously drug-fueled Full Moon Parties also often draw police attention.
 
Just to reiterate: '''AVOID ANY EXPOSURE TO ILLEGAL DRUG USE IN THAILAND.'''
Possession of cannabis (กัญชา ''ganchaa''), while illegal, is treated less harshly and, if busted, you ''may'' be able to pay an "on the spot fine" to get out, although even this can set you back tens of thousands of baht or even more. It's highly unwise to rely on this.
