    Finally Cambodia’s Justice System starts working. No more simple lecturing and release. A lifetime prison sentence will teach everyone a lesson. The amount of drugs in the kingdom is on a steady rise, so is the drug related crime in Phnom Penh in particular. Many people complain about the anti drug war in the Philippines but knowing the situation there PM Duterte took real action. We will soon witness similar actions in Vietnam but Thailand seems to be completely lost on the issue.
    In the US you don’t want to fly anymore.
    This year alone airliners had to duct tape unruly passengers to their seat because they became violent, most was drug related.

      Its to hard. This young man is 22 Years old. Many young people make the wrong decisions. Unemployment and no prospects for a better future. This sentence may be a deterrent, but this young person never gets out of prison. What a pity, what could have become of him with the right education or the right friends.
