Singapore Is Banning Vaping Entirely. Thanks, Singapore.

Singapore has always been pretty negative towards vaping, having banned the sale, distribution, and importation of e-cigarettes and any related products back in 2015.

But just as the positive studies start to pick up steam around the world, Singapore goes ahead and schedules the total annihilation of them.

As of February 1st, buying, using, or even just possessing an e-cigarette or related product will be totally illegal, according to Singapore’s Ministry of Health last Friday.

After this date, anyone who is found to be in breach of these new prohibitions will be smacked in the face with a fine of up to $2,000.

Singapore has garnered somewhat of a popular vape scene over the last few years, with many of their current smokers successfully making the switch over to e-cigarettes, even though it’s nearly impossible for people to buy them while living there.

Unfortunately, every single person in Singapore who had changed their life for the better will now be at risk of reverting back to smoking, being forced to fill their bodies with carcinogens.

In a country where an estimated 37 people die every week from smoking and nearly 12% of all male children are current smokers, this really is a major failure for Singapore.

Currently living in Sydney Australia, I come from a background in brand marketing and comedy writing. I’ve spent the last 3 years heavily involved in the vape industries of the USA, UK, and Oceania.
