I'll tell you one thing (after having spent a lot of time in Singapore).
For the law-abiding, it's a safe, beautiful place to live.

China has Chairman Mao, Vietnam has Uncle Ho, and Singapore has a father in Lee Kwan Yew. Although he was overall a lot more positive than the other two.

The funniest (besides having to dump our gum every time we went) was them making my little brother get a haircut.

if you alot of money, don't do drugs, and hate gum, singapore is a very great place to live.
Singapore is a tax escape heaven. With money alot of smaller/none major laws don't apply to you.

To answer the OP's question, one must study the history of Singapore, and also do a brief study of the word "paranoia".

Why should we be "relaxed" in our rules to drug users, abusers or dealers or people who chose to transport them???
BTW If you don't like our rules, DON'T come here!!!
We seriously "don't want YOU" (YOU, who is "pro-drugs & drug paraphernalia").

We as Singaporean really do not need losers who chose to be in drug trade or abuse in any form NOR need people who support drug abuse in any shape or form (seriously again... WE don't want you here!!! No Thank-you, go some place else!!! Don't "soil" my beautiful country mind you!).

We don't care if Hong Kong relax their rules... they are NOT "us" (Go to Hong Kong Pleazzzz, Singaporean still don't want drug paraphernalia supporters here in SG).
And we love our society more "puritan" like that.
And thank you very much... yes, love it that way.

BTW... drug abuse do "affect" mind and or the state of mind...
Why would we want or allow a "clouded & corrupted" mind in the drugged state to become & "spread" like a highly spreadable disease that can affect our innocent children????

Why should we as "Singaporean" want to allow that with that relaxed rules???
(Why? Shouldn't we Singaporean as a "smart" people learn from history from that EVIL of the Opium War & Trade with its abuse in China (1600s from the Portugese who started it all till 1800s) & actually be that proud nation that we would never allow that in OUR COUNTRY???)

We are fine for so many years "drug disease-free" from curbing drugs (as would CDC curb bird flu for eg.) hence with very little drug problems (still there is some that tried, but we do try our very best to cull them as we really should to protect our society).

Why...
Do you hear any normal "drug-free" Singaporean themselves complain except for the "people" who really like to be able to abuse that drug rule so they themselves can get access to it or for the "sympathetic" parents of those children that already abused it???

So yah... "look in the mirror"... when asking that question...
People who want that relaxed rules = people who actually will "profit" or be "advantageous" from the relaxed rules...
NOT people who will not get any positive results from it.

Go to Hong Kong plz???

P.S. And I loooove the capital punishment btw... with its very efficient court system (fast and don't waste time, so we don't waste tax payers money to feed the prisoners mind you) unlike USA even. Don't like it??? Move else where!!!! We don't even waste bullets on the like of losers... we are green & reuse our ropes for hanging.

Love it "Draconian" & super duper "Green" too..

I've been there a few times while in the Navy, all I have to say is that is a very nice well kept country. I was very impressed with its cleanliness, but definitely would not want to live there.

I knew when I was flying in and saw a sign with a guy holding a camera and a gun stuck to his head..(symbolizing you take a picture, you will die) that the stories were right.
