Singapore bans behaviours that promote drug use

Singapore has made several changes to its Misuse of Drugs Act. The changes include treating behaviours that promote or facilitate drug use as criminal offences. From 1 August 2019 it became an offence to tell someone how to cultivate, produce, traffic or use illicit substances, with a maximum prison term of 10 years and a minimum prison term of 2 years for repeat offenders. The amendments also create a new offence of storing drugs within reach of children and introduce mandatory rehabilitation for people repeatedly testing positive for illicit substances.
