Police to summon a Facebook user for posting alleged marijuana smoking at Suvarnabhumi airport | News by Samui TimesSuch post has tarnished the reputation of the airport and the country, the police said at a press conference Saturday (July 8).

Airport police said they have investigated and checked the smoking room after the Facebook post.

Initial finding showed it was a group of Vietnamese people and what they smoked was not marijuana but tobacco, the police said.

It looked like they were smoking tobacco in a Vietnamese style, police added.

They will summon the poster for clarification as the post could cause misunderstanding and damage the reputation of the airport and the country which is a violation of the Computer Crime Act.

The police said the Vietnamese was waiting for a flight home.

While awaiting the flight, the man and his friends went into the smoking room. He drew out the bottle with hole drills similar to bamboo tube. He placed something which looked like dried tobacco leaves on a hole and then lit with fire and smoked.

Police collected the discarded bottle and remaining ashes from the trash bin and sent for drug test. The test confirmed that it was not marijuana but tobacco.

However, to confirm the result, another laboratory test is underway and the result is expected to come out in 15 days, police said.
