An ST reporter was visiting a vape shop in Johor and found some Singaporeans buying vapes on Good Friday.

In the city centre alone, Johor has at least 30 vape shops operating there, with Singaporeans patronising about half of them.

The prices of the vapes are about one-third of the price to get one illegally in Singapore, according to ST via Mothership.

Customers can expect to spend about RM300 during each visit to the shops.
