Clamp down on sale of hookahs, herbal liquor in Pattaya

PATTAYA - The sale of Baraku water-pipes and Yadong herbal liquor has been banned at Pattaya City entertainment venues - with violators facing arrest and closure of their venues for 30 days.

Chon Buri governor Khomsan Ekkachai had instructed Bang Lamung district to announce the new regulations and notify business operators earlier this month.

Bang Lamung district chief Sakchai Taeng-hor, yesterday led 50 Territorial Defence officials, excise officials and Pattaya police to inspect service venues for the illegal selling of such items - prohibited in accordance with the Liquor Act BE 2493 and the Tobacco Act BE 2509.

Sakchai said they found most venues observed the regulations, while those who insisted on selling the prohibited items were warned and had their offence recorded.
