Singapore bans purchase, use and possession of imitation tobacco products like e-cigarettes


SINGAPORE: From Feb 1, it will be illegal to buy, use and possess emerging and imitation tobacco products such as smokeless tobacco products, chewing tobacco and shisha, as the first phase of amendments to Singapore's Tobacco (Control of Advertisements and Sale) Act kick in.

With the new amendments, anyone caught buying, possessing or using such products can be fined up to S$2,000 (RM5,930), the Ministry of Health (MOH) said in a statement on Friday (Jan 26).
