The Mueang Lampang police officers received a complaint report from anonymous local residents that the shop provided spaces and tools for smoking marijuana to minors and students, causing annoyance to locals.

During the inspection, the police officers found cannabis and other marijuana equipment allegedly sold to minors and students at a nearby school with more than 10 individuals involved and even reportedly an unidentified 14-year-old student was found inside the shop.

Initially, the owner of the shop was charged with selling controlled herbs (cannabis) for commercial purposes without permission to students or minors.

Consequently, the police officers escorted the unidentified owner of the marijuana shop to the Mueang Lampang police station for further legal processing.
