Singaporeans who smoke weed abroad could land in jail, bureau warns

SINGAPORE has joined South Korea and Japan in warning its citizens against smoking marijuana in countries where it is legal, amid reports that its Southeast Asian neighbours were considering the drug for medical use. The city-state’s Central Narcotics Bureau (CNB) on Friday reiterated its tough stance on the matter, saying any citizen or permanent resident found to have used the drugs overseas would be treated as though he or she abused drugs in Singapore, according to Today Online. The bureau said it conducts enforcement checks at the Singapore’s checkpoints and will take action on those who tested positive for marijuana use. Without referring to any country, the bureau said it was aware of “ongoing discussions” over the safety and legality of medical marijuana, or products containing tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the ingredient vital for its recreational and medical use.
