Free legal advice again! This time for “annoying” smokers

Daily News said smokers are immensely annoying.

They forever toss their filthy cigarette butts wherever they please – they finish puffing and just throw their butts down there.

This creates work for others in clearing up their mess.

But did you know there is a penalty for this?

They asked online lawyer Ratchaphon Sirisakhon about it on Tuesday.

Ratchaphon – who has been giving the benefits of his views on how to sue over all manner of slurs recently – said that smokers who toss their butts in the street can be fined 2,000 baht.

That is because of the 1982 law 31(1) 54.

Recent free advice in the Thai media from several lawyers has warned against saying Thai women have small breasts and use of the Thai word for water monitor.

On the cigarette issue the head of the Pattaya “tessakit” (local authority) said recently that throwing butts on the beach would also be a 2,000 baht fine under littering laws.

The idea that it could mean jail or 100,000 baht in fines – as suggested by signage – was not the case, he said.
