Three thoughts that must have went past your mind at some point.

The Singapore authorities are looking at raising the minimum legal age for buying and using tobacco from 18 to 21 and restricting the sale of flavoured tobacco products, such as menthol cigarettes.

These proposals will be part of a public consultation from Dec. 29, 2015 to March 29, 2016.

The Health Promotion Board (HPB) will be launching the consultation together with the Ministry of Health and the Health Sciences Authority.

The authorities will be seeking views on a suite of tobacco control measures that Singapore could potentially introduce.

Here are three thoughts Singaporeans have:

 

sian-half-auntie “You can serve NS, handle a rifle and go to war at 18 but cannot smoke until you’ve turned 21. Makes sense.”
Kee Zho Peng, 44-year-old shoelace maker

 

sian-half-uncle “The most effective way to stop people from smoking is to raise the minimum legal age to 90.”
Kee Qia, 62-year-old lorry driver

 

happy-bird-girl “I guess I’ll just wait till I’m 21 to pick up my smoking addiction. I will settle for drugs for the time being.”
Xi Du, 17-year-old student
