“There is scant evidence of the safety and efficacy of long-term cannabis use. These findings corroborate Singapore’s position that cannabis should remain an illicit drug.“The consumption, possession, trafficking, import or export of any controlled drugs, including cannabis and cannabis products, is an offence under the Misuse of Drugs Act.”
