Smoking in Thailand could land you in jail!
Do you vape? If so, watch out in Thailand. Using E-cigarettes could be a problem for you.
According to their daily news, those who light up could go to jail and fine a stiff fine. Why? Because there's no provision in Thai law for E-cigarettes. They are not taxed. Therefore, possession under Thai law could be construed as illegal, according to a police spokeswoman cited in the media.
The importation, sale and production for sale of E-cigarettes is against the law. Offenders could serve 10-year sentences for the production and sale of E-cigarettes and a fine of five times the value of the goods or both. This law has been on the books since December 2014.
