Should E-Cigarettes be banned in Singapore?

Electronic cigarettes have so far been proven to be neither safe nor effective in helping smokers quit. More research still needs to be done to establish the usefulness of e-cigarettes to help people quit smoking. Although e-cigarettes do not contain some of the harmful substances found in normal cigarettes, this does not mean that they are entirely harmless. The nicotine present still poses a health risk to users. Users may still develop a dependence or addiction to nicotine by inhaling the fine nicotine mist produced by e-cigarettes.

There’s a special place for smokers in Nee Soon South... and it’s sheltered

Have you spotted this in Nee Soon South? It's one of the designated smoking corners launched on Sunday in a bid to turn the town into a smoke-free zone. What a way to bring them smokers together, hey? While smokers in other parts of Singapore are banned from lighting up at places like sheltered walkways, bus shelters and common areas of residential buildings, those in Nee Soon South have special corners erected just for them. And, they’re sheltered. These corners even have special concrete pathways leading to them. Wow.
