    Singapore and Electronic Cigarettes - An Example of Dooms Dayness

    One would have thought Singapore would have been supportive of ecigs considering the emphasis in the country on keeping litter to a minimum. The overflowing cigarette cans in the streets are far from savoury.

    The Government got their justification from the World Health Organisation's recommendations, which was influenced heavily by anti-nicotine radicals.

    I am a frequent visitor to Singapore. Never had any issues, but there again never been pulled up. Everybody I come across are fascinated with the PV. Taxi drivers don't have any issue and the questions make the journey worthwhile. Bars have no objection and its a bonus in the hotels as they dont do smoking rooms anymore.

    A three of years ago I was pulled over coming across the causeway from Malaysia to Singapore. In my pocket I had a packet of smokes with two in it. In my bag I had an unopened pack. I was hit with a $250 fine. Bummer was I was flying back to Australia two hours later and in effect I was in transit.

    There is no doubt in my mind that Government revenue is the source of this stupidity.
    Because I trust no-one Who tells me FACTS with no proof

    I spend a lot of time in Singapore and this is no surprise. I'd hazard a guess this is more about cigarette tax than anything else. When entering via land or water (like from Batam or johor Bahru) they are very thorough in customs and seem to be only concerned about you bringing in cigs. Cigs are relatively cheap there at less than 10aud. Strange but true.

    That said, I vape everywhere you'd smoke there, all the time, with never a problem.

    Back on the nic.
