Arugam’s Ganja Monkies nabbed

(Archive. 1st published 31/03/2011)
After the end of the war, long existing laws are now strictly enforced at remote Arugam Bay.


The East Coast has been largely left alone.
For many years.
With still no wine or liquor store for miles around and the odd shortage of “Gold Leaf” some desperate residents and visitors turned to natural marihuana consumption.  Sadly, tame as well as some wild monkeys also got the taste and enjoyed the weird feeling.

Arugam Bay Special Narcotics squad arrested 4 addicts last night

NABBED!

Sadly, many more seem to be addicted to this illegal practice.
But they are still on the run.

Spotted at AbaY’s traditional Full Moon Party. Nov. 2010, Peanus Fm.

Cheeky! Openly flaunting the law of the Land!

Shocking! He is not even one year old. And already addicted.

The WHO, the RSPCA and other ENJOY’s have been requested to assist.
To support Arugam’s “Community Based Sustainable Junkie Rehabilitation” Program (CBSJRP). Some former NGO members volunteered at once, which is encouraging.

Desperate for a smoke, this monkey grabbed a ‘Cold Leaf’ from a diner sitting on Arugam’s  SVH “Flower Power Terrace”

To avoid detection, some clever chips adopted pipe smoking methods

Dehiwala zoo officials are also concerned

Nabbed! Shown here in the Loco Tourist Police lock up. Beachfront Tourist Police, Arugam Bay.

Other addicts have learned to camouflage themselves to escape arrest in Arugam’s  jungles. Filmed here by undercover navy Security personnel near their new Panama Camp

The STF as well as the New Navy ‘Detachment’ at Panama has been on high alert to catch these subversive creatures
