Pol Col Samran Nuanma told the media that parcel delivery firms should be doing more to inspect and question what they are delivering to customers. 

There have been several cases recently of people getting into trouble for receiving parcels that contain drugs. 

The post office has issued extensive guidance for people to avoid falling victim. 

Pol Col Niwat Phunguthaisri said that the landscape of drug dealing had changed since the rise of modern technology since 2007 with smart phone and app usage. 

Whereas before stings with dealers would be conducted on the streets, drug authorities now face an entirely different battle between dealer and customer. 

Neither is likely to know each other and enforcement has had to change. 

Daily News said in their headline that online drug dealing was now booming in Thailand.
