The Singapore Governmentโ€™s stand on illicit drugs, including cannabis, is clear – they are harmful, addictive and can destroy lives, families and communities. Examples of other countries have clearly shown that a permissive attitude towards the use of drugs exacts a high cost on society. Therefore, there are strict laws against the trafficking, possession, consumption, and import or export of illicit drugs, including cannabis and cannabis products.

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