Cannabis

How Singapore stops drugs and drug users from passing through Changi Airport- CNA online, 24 September 2022.

I like what I have read. I am a strong supporter of the government’s position and stand on our zero tolerance laws toward drugs trafficking and drug abuses.

In the face of shifting international and public opinions and attitudes toward drug users and abuses, I fully appreciate that the position we adopt is going to be a long term uphill battle.

Thailand has legalised the use of cannabis in June this year. It is a favourite tourist destination for both foreigners and Singaporeans alike.

I understand that small amount of cannabis maybe added to cooking, foodstuffs and even in everyday items such as toothpastes etc there. Given that, unknowingly consuming and using products cooked or made with cannabis, albeit minute amount, is a real possibility.

Any persons caught in Singapore with drug abuses and trafficking etc potentially stares at the death penalty.

I hope that the government or better still, K. Shanmugam himself can spell out absolutely clearly and as soon as possible in simple lay person’s language that everybody can understand how, what can be expected and happens if in the unfortunate event somebody is caught in such a situation.

Ambiguity, either intentionally or otherwise is not blissful, not helpful and not useful at all.

Think.

  • Errr…I think Simon meant Opium and not Cannabis. When I just arrived in ShenZhen, China, I learn that some eateries actually put Opium Seeds in SzeChuan steambot. In the city where I am based now in Hubei, I don’t see it anymore.

    Even so, I was careful not to take any steamboat outside of my own home whenever I need to return to Sinkieland in the coming week, better play safe than sorry. Honestly, I trust the drug police in China more than those at CNB. In China, still can explain, if kenna positive in Sinkieland, you think telling them that you took a steamboat in China is going to let you off the hook for a positive drug test meh?

    Heard that idiot Schooling admitted that he took some drugs in Thailand, even his drug test negative also kenna police case, how to trust the system like that?

    Imagine I drunk and anyhow say I sold drugs to ah meng at Mandai Zoo, then I kenna hang for trafficking? Scarry Sia!

    Truth be told, in China I see police, I walk past them and even can say “Hi”, but if I were in Sinkieland I see police, I sure siam as far away as possible one, donno why ar?

    Why Changi Airport and not smaller airport where private aircrafts fly in and out. CNB should put narco dogs there to sniff out drugs and other contrabands that might be in bags and cargoes.

    Take a regular assault case.
    Notice in China,victims are protected and the police would ensure perpetrators who commit the criminal act of force on the victims would face the law and be duly punished.

    In Sinkapore,the victims of assault got no such privileges and,for some strange reasons,perpetrators are treated like they are *innocent*.So,many victims who cannot afford lawyers just discouragingly let it go.
    IS THIS GOOD FOR SOCIETY N SOCIAL ORDERLINESS?
    I think it is going to EMBOLDEN CROOKS N HOOLIGANS TO BULLY THOSE THEY THINK ARE WEAKER THAN THEM.
    SINGAPORE POLICE HAS SLACKENED IN THIS RESPECT.

    SOME REVIEWS ON HOW TO APPROACH ASSAULT CASES NEED TO BE CARRIED OUT SO AS TO DISCOURAGE POTENTIAL BULLIES FROM ASSAULTING LAW-ABIDING CITIZENS especially the weak and vulnerable like senior citizens and ypung kids.

    Cannabis is defined as a tall plant with a stiff upright stem, divided serrated leaves, and glandular hairs. The US National Cancer Institute says “Cannabis may help treat the symptoms of cancer or the side effects of cancer treatment, such as nausea and vomiting, pain and cachexia(loss of body weight and muscle mass).” So why is there in Singapore only the concern of the euphoric effects or “high”. In cooking, the herbs added in, is for the wellbeing of our bodies. Cannabis, poppy seeds, opium have been used for centuries. Many of the US Presidents like Benjamin Franklin and George Washington smoked hashish. In 1890, Queen Victoria herself used cannabis for menstrual cramps. It is in 1970, that Nixon made it illegal because the American young men did not want to be conscripted into the army, to be sent away to Vietnam and started the peace rallies. So after half a century why are we following the Americans and not allowing the use of Cannabis in our cooking? Perhaps, there will be less stress, cancer and other illness if we learn to use the plants as our ancestors. It may reduce the nos. of people popping pharmaceutical drugs which may be causing more damage to our bodies than a natural grown plant like Cannabis. Medicine is always in our food. It is never in the drugs which are manufactured in the labs. These only treat the symptoms of the disease.

    Well, if I can appear morally superior than you then I can have more authority over you right? It’s LKY’s way of legitimizing their control over you…..appearing whiter than thee.

    That is until one day, the topic is no longer viewed as immoral by society. Then suddenly the MIW changes their tune in order not to offend the larger society.

    Morality without compassion is but disguised tyranny. Just as networking without integrity is but cronyism in disguise. Hope that the younger generations will see through selfish leaders who claimed to be doing good by society while pocketing goodies all the way for themselves and their kakis.

    @Smart Nation
    Smaller airports are used by the wealthy.Has there been any conviction of possession or trafficking of the wealthy?How do drugs enter 728sqm of land? Do you think that it is strange that no drug cartel has been arrested by the Singapore police. The Minister creates a circus to distract the Public.Now the performers in this circus are Schooling,Amanda and friend.The venue of the circus is Parliament House.
