After hearing a number of stories about naturals having to undergo hair searches at airport security points, I always said to myself ‘do they really think someone would go to those kind of lengths?’ Well lo and behold, a young lady has done just that.

This article reports about a South African woman having large sticks of cocaine removed from inside of her dreadlocks by Thailand officials. As much as this lady must know right from wrong at the age of 23, I can’t help but wonder what would have driven her to take such a risk. In the middle of the article it mentions the execution of another drug smuggler only this week., which indicates just how serious an offense this is in Thailand.

What’s your thoughts on the story? Have you been hair checked when boarding a flight?
