I still liked the country though, very friendly and helpful people. I stayed right off Orchad in a Chinese style apartment for 2 weeks, floor toilet and all. There was a Denny's right down the avenue from my place though, it really felt like America. This is around where I stayed...400 Orchard Rd., Singapore, Singapore

No doubt, friendly people can be found in Singapore. It depends on who you run in to. However, I don't think I could live there. I don't do Playboy, nor would I ever litter. However, I like gum, and I'm the type who will eat and drink in public. I

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..
How many innocent people do you guys execute every year or that doesn't happen in utopia?

Honestly, I think Singapore's reputation is kind of blown out of proportion. I've been to Singapore many times and never have I run into problems. Just don't do anything wrong and you won't get into trouble. I'm sure you can live without chewing gum for awhile.

Offer me (or my children) one I & I will definitely not hesitate to offer you that "very nice" green rope (fair exchange I believe)...

Hence the logic why you need Singapore to "relax" that law so you can in turn offer that blunt to my people so you can make "A PROFIT"???

To any who thinks I am a right wing thinker, is so right.

"If" all right winger all obey laws & don't do drugs... than it only proof that they are the "right" way.
Not morally wrong in that "other" way so they can twist that law to excuse that "loser" behaviour.

Oh yeah.
Mirror mirror on the wall.
Who is the "pot" afterall????

Lol!

P.S. If right wing is like Singapore... that means when you don't work, most likely you'll need YOUR OWN family to support you or you just don't eat.
Now... "if" USA also becomes like Singapore... just think how much of a "dead weight" USA can shed.
Its a very very good thing actually for the tax payers.

Not so innocent when you are trying to offer drugs to my people or my people's children.
And what innocent??? Don't you know when there is smoke there more than likely is "fire"???

Besides its my country.
And if you don't like it... we love it that you do not even step one foot there.
Besides... we do already have too many people here anyways.
So...
Its not like we "need" loser drug people to "enhance" my country anyways.

Oh yeah.
Great countries need "smart" & clear headed people.
NOT drug heads or people who needs laws so they can be drug heads.

Please don't come here.
If you are a druggie, I do personally believe you are better off dead anyways.
Aren't drug users already brain dead in a way???
GMAB.

Yes, we are very well mannered when it comes to a timely execution to people who try to break our laws.
It is only courteous to do that & super courteous to try & protect our own people.

But then...
I am sure many Asian Countries will do that too.
Especially China.
Why would you want to test their courtesy & break their law???
They are much less "humane" & "understanding" I heard.
