BANGKOK BEACH BECOMES BIG FOR BANGING BECAUSE OF BAD BATCH BREW
Bangkok: Young Australians partying on beaches in southern Thailand are drinking a potentially deadly drug cocktail made from a local leaf trafficked by criminals who prey on them when they are under its influence, Australia’s official representative in the area warns.
The drug, kratom, is often mixed with the insect repellent DEET as well as cough medicine, cola and ice, leaving users in a stupefied and vulnerable state, says Larry Cunningham, Australia’s honorary consul based in Phuket.

The victims of rapes, assaults and thefts committed at Thailand’s beach rave parties usually failed to report the crimes to police, he said, leaving the extent of the problem largely unknown.
“What do you do if you are out of it from taking this stuff and you are dragged away in the night and raped by a pack of Thai guys?”
Kratom is a tree in the coffee family that grows in abundance in the jungles of south-east Asia. Its opiate-like effect and low cost has led to rampant trafficking in tourist areas. Twenty leaves is enough to create a kratom cocktail for several people and costs the equivalent of $3.
