There have been messages circulating online warning Thai parents about LSD Stamps or commonly referred to as LSD Blotters. The message states that there is a new type of drug in Thailand that comes in the form of stamps with fun prints on them and that they are spreading amongst Thai children and teenagers, parents are to keep an eye out for these strange-looking stamps.
Niyom Termsrisuk from the Office of the Narcotics Control Board (ONCB) reported on 23 November 2019 that LSD Blotters are not common in Thailand. The stamps are made out of paper with colorful and fun prints on them. The paper is then soaked with Lysergic Acid Diethylamide (LSD) a hallucinogenic drug in the psychedelics. Using the drug is often referred to as going on a “trip”.
LSD in small doses such as from an LSD blotter causes a change in the mood, vision, senses, and more. In large doses, it can cause hallucinations and extreme perception changes. The drug is famous for its colorful visual effects. Other popular names include Acid, Lucy, and trips. To use LSD blotters you simply place it on your tongue. When the effects start kicking in the feeling of happiness comes in, but when overused users can become violent towards others or towards themselves in the form of suicidal thoughts.
LSD blotters are not common in Thailand and they are certainly not spreading. Since 2016 only 3 cases have been recorded with 1 case each from Bangkok, Chiang Mai, and Surat Thani. All of these cases were arrested in tourist areas and all suspects were foreigners.
The message sent to the parents has information that is true and it is good to be careful of drugs. But there is no need to be suspicious of your children as LSD blotters are not popular in Thailand.
