Mules, mules
I am waiting to read about the factories, producers in Thailand, or the importers and the border customs check points
With long time weekly many drugs mules arrested. The thai government by now should come up with higher level arrest in this 'drugs trees'

If no arrest take place at higher criminal levels than there are 2 conclusions
The RTP is lazy, or they not want.
