Monks in Thai temple defrocked for testing positive for meth

A Buddhist temple in central Thailand has been left without monks after all of its holy men failed drug tests and were defrocked. Four monks, including an abbot, have been sent to a health clinic to undergo drug rehabilitation. The temple is now empty of monks and nearby villagers are concerned they cannot do any merit-making. Merit-making involves worshipers donating food to monks as a good deed. More monks will be sent to the temple to allow villagers to practice their religious obligations. (CBSNews)
