The sale of chewing gum is banned in Singapore - News - Bubblews #bubblews
Chewing gum is banned in Singapore since 1992 with the exception of therapeutic products. Sale and import are prohibited and liable to a fine of $ 500. The ban has been much attention on the part of civil rights activists. Legislation in Singapore is very extreme and laws on social behavior are considered the most stringent in the world. Large fines are imposed on people who throw papers and waste (including cigarette butts), spitting or urinating in public places.
