And no complaints about violent behaviour by tuktuk drivers. Had another one myself this week in front of Hard Rock Cafe. Obviously we are not allowed to park anywhere along Rat-U-Thit Road. And what the police does...

Patong a real classy place these days, at least the tuk tuk driver didn't have the normal ten to one odds in his favor this time.

tuktuk driver should consider every Russian a bikie at heart.

"A Russian tourist who was drunk"... A prime example of a redundant phrase if ever there was one.

Alcohol causes violence - among other vices, yet its manufacturers and distributors enjoy full protection from the government. Enough of the hypocrisy. Give people a choice and I bet most would choose a buzz with less harmful drugs. Legalise marijuana NOW.

Alcohol causes violence? I thought it was people. You admit marijuana is harmful. To trade one harmful drug for another harmful seems an illogical argument, media watcher. Why not make them both illegal? Sloganeering simply makes people question your motives.
He was suggesting to trade a drug that made (some) people violent with a much less harmful one. Nothing illogical in that.

John, what makes you think Media Watcher is a he? Guesswork will get you nowhere. Your logic also has to be questioned.
Funny, isn't it, how easy it is the next day to forget a late-night drunken dispute which at the time seemed like a life-and-death struggle. Maybe not being able to remember anything about what happened the night before might have something to do with this. The ONLY benefit I can think of associated with drunkenness.

Geez what a nitpick you are! Obviously there is very high probability that Media Watcher is a man, given that most of phuket expats are men, most of the posters on this site are men (just check the names on the various comments), and that most of marijuana defenders are men too. That's just basic logic.

Guesswork is guesswork, John. We can't do it, why should you?
