A foreign man has collapsed and died after allegedly drinking tea laced with marijuana at a premises on Pattaya’s Walking Street. According to a Nation Thailand report, the incident happened in the early hours of Sunday morning, July 30.

Workers from the Sawang Boribun Thamma Sathan rescue centre arrived at the scene after being notified at around 3.45am. Inside the shop in the Bang Lamung district, they found a foreigner collapsed on the floor.

The Pattaya News carried a later story claiming that the man had been drinking a cappuccino at the time but no official reason for the man’s death has yet been released by the coroner.

According to the Nation Thailand report, doctors from Pattaya Hospital were also in attendance and rescue workers attempted to resuscitate the man. He was rushed to hospital where he was pronounced dead. The man has been named as Hamad Alblaiher, but police have not confirmed his nationality.

Shocked staff at the shop told police that Alblaiher was a regular customer “who always ordered marijuana tea and a glass of water”. According to the staff, the man never smoked marijuana in the shop.

During his visit to the shop on Sunday, staff say he suddenly began complaining that he couldn’t breathe, before collapsing on the floor.
