Singapore reclassifies six drugs as Class A

The Criminal Narcotics Bureau in Singapore has announced that five psychoactive substances currently on the fifth schedule of Singapore’s Misuse of Drugs Act will be reclassified as Class A substances and listed on the act’s first schedule. The substances are Adamantyl CHMINACA (SGT-37); 3,4-DCMP; 5-Fluoro-cumyl-PICA; 5-Fluoro-SDB-005; and SDB-005. A sixth substance, lisdexamphetamine, will also be added to the first schedule and will therefore be classified as a Class A drug. The change means that people found guilty of trafficking these substances will face a minimum of five years in prison and five strokes of the cane.
