This should come as a surprise for many of the Expats especially for those who regularly visit the Pham Ngu Lao area for their purchases of marijuana. The Vietnamese police just busted the largest shipment of drugs ever (worth $90 million US) of canibis (marjiuana).
There is a perception in the backpacker area that it is all right to smoke marijuana since the Vietnamese police will only try to catch those who use more illicit drugs such as cocaine or heroine. I was never really sure that was such a case but now marijuana users should definitely use more caution.
Anyway, unless you want to become Beavis and Butthead, why smoke marijuana? 🙂
