Recently this has been on the news and newspaper,

http://www.channelnewsasia.com/stories/singaporelocalnews/view/396865/1/.html

wondering if anyone actually read up on this, its about the Smoking/binge drinking thing. So does anyone do this? i kinda do this alot with my cliques, though i don't smoke and we don't end up drunk and naked ofc

I'm still not sure what they are gonna do on that campaign but looks like they are gonna put up a rule for drinkers & smokers age 18-25. Seriously sucks for those who just turn 18 and legal

whats up with the goverment nowadays ...

a rule? not prohibition im sure... though it is true that governments in other countries dont step in so much on such personal matters, unless it has become a worrying trend. but this is Singapore, and the government is somewhat justified in doing as such in the interest of protecting its only "natural" resource. ^^ At the same time, and back to my first two sentences, the campaign is likely going to be more on education, probably similar to the anti-drug, anti-smoking campaigns we had in primary and secondary school, or the dengue fever ones on tv. If any rules were implemented, the public backlash from this vocal group of people is sure to be resounding.
