Two Foodpanda delivery drivers were caught at separate checkpoints in Krabi Province with weed and kratom juice.
The first driver was pulled over at a checkpoint where police searched his delivery bag. Inside they found three bottles of kratom juice wrapped in cloth.
The second delivery driver was stopped at a different checkpoint where he was found to have hidden 800 grams of kratom plant, a liter of kratom juice, and 3.9 grams of weed in his pink Foodpanda bag.
Both men insisted they were not delivering the illegal substances to customers, but has the drugs for personal use.
Delivery Hero, the company that owns and operates Foodpanda, said that it had fired both employees after they were arrested and charged for drug possession.
Kratom has a long history of use in Thailand although consumption for medical purposes, along with weed, was made legal in early 2019.
