A Melbourne couple discovered that marijuana had been hidden in their luggage, and they were thankful that they did not violate Thailand’s drug laws.

The couple was planning to fly from Phuket to Bangkok. They discovered that their duffel bags were overweight when they were preparing to check in. But they didn't realize something was wrong until they discovered that one of the locks of one of the bags was missing.

Georgia (Georgia) told Radio 3AW on Monday that not only did they lose a lock, her boyfriend's suitcase was also torn. They took the luggage to a nearby hotel, and after searching, found a small bag of marijuana in Georgia's luggage.

She said employees of the Australian Embassy advised them to throw away the bags and change their travel plans. Georgia said: "We washed clothes in Bangkok for two days and changed our suitcases just to make sure we didn't have any marijuana anymore."

She suspected that both she and her boyfriend had encountered a scam, possibly someone pretending to be a policeman or a customs officer.

Georgia said: "I think this involves financial interests. We are really lucky not to board the plane, otherwise who knows what will happen."
