Dear A.S.S. Editor

The Central Narcotics Bureau (CNB) just issued a statement that the advisory that was spreading online over the weekend regarding a drug known as “strawberry quick”, which is said to taste like pop rock candy and is targeted at children, is a hoax.

CNB stated that they had not come across any cases of such drugs in Singapore in recent years, and that CNB had not issued any advisory on the drugs. Still, CNB urged parents to remind their children about the dangers of drugs. “While there is no specific information about ‘strawberry quick’, we urge parents to remind their children that drugs are harmful. Unscrupulous traffickers may seek to disguise the harmful nature of drugs by making them look like candy or foodstuff,” it said.

It is more of an issue that people are spreading such rumours and hoaxes and taking it as fact without properly checking. These people should be brought to task for spreading false information.
