This is how Singapore teaches children to stay away from drugs

At the 59th Session of the Commission on Narcotic Drugs and UN General Assembly Special Sessions Preparatory Session in Vienna, Singapore’s slightly morbid anti-drug postcards were featured and we couldn’t help but chuckle.

The cards, which attempt to deter kids from doing drugs, are posed in rhymes with characters that look a little high themselves.

The educational materials are apparently from a 2004 game called ‘’Don’t Get Nabbed!’. It was created for a programme to educate kids as part of the partnership for a drug free Singapore.

After viewing the postcards, openDemocracy asked an expert what are the human costs of Singapore’s harsh anti-drug policies.

The reality behind the consequences of being embroiled in drugs in Singapore is less than funny.
