In the latest drug bust by Central Narcotics Bureau (CNB) officers on 28 April 2021, a 38-year-old Singaporean male was arrested for suspected drug activities. A total of about 36g of ‘Ice’ and 87 cakes believed to be infused with cannabis were seized during the operation.

2.         In the evening of 28 April, CNB officers arrested the 38-year-old male in the vicinity of Upper Cross Street. He was brought to his hideout in the same vicinity, where a search was conducted. Five packets containing about 36g of ‘Ice’, 87 cakes believed to be infused with cannabis, and various drug paraphernalia were seized from the residential unit.

4.         Investigations into the drug activities of the suspect are ongoing. CNB is aware that in various jurisdictions around the world, some have decriminalised or legalised cannabis, and they allow the sale of cannabis and/or products containing cannabis. There is scant evidence of the safety and efficacy of long-term cannabis use. These findings corroborate Singapore’s position that cannabis should remain an illicit drug.

5.         CNB would like to remind the public that cannabis is addictive and harmful, and is a Class A controlled drug listed under Singapore’s Misuse of Drugs Act (MDA). The consumption, possession, trafficking, import or export of any controlled drugs, including cannabis and cannabis products, is an offence under the MDA.

6.         CNB would also like to urge parents to play an active part to protect our youths from the menace of drugs, and to remind their children that they should not consume products unknown to them, or offered by strangers. To entice more youths to consume these products, they are often disguised as candy or other food products. Members of the public can contact the CNB hotline at 1800-325-6666 for advice and assistance if they come across such suspected food products, or are worried that their children may be involved with drugs. Those who have drug-related information can make a report to CNB by calling 1800-325-6666 or at https://www.eservices.cnb.gov.sg/feedback/
