My take: This is a rapidly developing story that adds a whole lot more character and raises a lot more questions regarding the big ketamine bust that wasn’t in November in Chachoengsao. We will track these big ketamine busts closely, because they all seem to be traced back to efforts by the Taiwanese officials who are informing Thai law enforcement about the smuggling network.
