As we see the table load of drugs, it is hard to believe that '2 men in a pick up, and being old school friends in the past', just transporters and distributors to street sellers, are the 'drug barons'.
This table load of drugs goes far back up to very influential important thai people who deliberately poison the thai nations young people. Their God is money.
