Notorious for banning gum, Singapore isn’t a surprise guest on this list of the countries with the strictest weed laws. Singapore’s Misuse of Drugs Act, which classifies drugs into three categories, is punitive by most standards.
The court assumes that you are trafficking weed if you possess more than one ounce. This is less than the 100 gram threshold for opium. This act also presumes that if the police find drugs at your house, then the drugs are yours.
Not only are the standards for trafficking and possession severe in Singapore, but the country has a mandatory death penalty. For marijuana, you will receive the mandatory death penalty for 500 grams.
Punishments for less than this amount are also cruel and severe: prison sentences range from 10 years to life, and caning is another commonly used punishment.
Additionally, Singaporean police can drug test you at any moment without warning. Tony Tan, convicted of drug charges, says of Singapore’s drug laws, “Consumption just means that your urine has tested positive.”
There’s nothing mind opening about marijuana use unless you mean making the mind one large vacuous space that causes it to cease reasonable functioning and consideration for others. I was laid back about others’ pot smoking until the increasingly lenient laws in the U.S. meant that there’s hardly any enforcement of the pot smoking in my NONSMOKING apartment building. I’ve heard similar complaints from others in their apartment buildings. Sorry pot smokers, but as long as you force me to inhale your noxious fumes in my apartment building, parking lots, any public public venue whatsoever, I will be firmly against the use of marijuana and will seek greater enforcement and punishments. It’s your selfishness and lack of consideration that has made it this way.
Laura you ignorant slut! Your inane diatribe on how this medicinal and spiritual plant that has been mankind friend for thousands of years is both ill informed and ignorant. Not sure if you have any facts at your disposal, as there are none listed , but your little baby annoyance is as amusing as it is ignorant. I will enjoy watching the world wake up and change around the close minded retardation that is your voice and that of your “kind”. Fade away oh mouse squeak of activism, scurry off to your creatively bereft and humorless hole of self unawaness and get buried in the rubbish of “no one cares”
Hahahaha thank you for that comment. Laura needs to lighten up or light one up
