Despite Singapore’s harsh stance on drugs, such substances may still rear their ugly head from time to time.

Recently, Central Narcotics Bureau (CNB) officers seized over 8kg of cannabis and 415g of heroin during one of their drug busts.

Six individuals, aged between 24 and 54, were also arrested for suspected drug trafficking offences during the operation.
