Singapore must strongly support the fight against the growing tolerance for recreational drug abuse and raise awareness about the legal and health consequences, said Deputy Speaker Christopher de Souza. Speaking in Parliament on Monday (Mar 1), he stressed the need to be proactive in recognising and banning new psychoactive substances. He said the laws must be flexible enough to incorporate such substances. He also asked the Ministry of Home Affairs for an update on its efforts to rehabilitate drug offenders.
