Misuse of Drugs Act (Singapore) - Thresholds


Section 17 of the Misuse of Drugs Act lists the amount of controlled drugs beyond which, the person who carries them shall be presumed to possess them for the purpose of drug trafficking unless proven otherwise:

  • opium: 100 grams (3.5 oz)
  • morphine: 3 grams (0.11 oz)
  • diamorphine (heroin): 2 grams (0.071 oz)
  • cannabis: 15 grams (0.53 oz)
  • cannabis mixture: 30 grams (1.1 oz)
  • cannabis resin: 15 grams (0.53 oz)
  • cocaine: 3 grams (0.11 oz)
  • hashish: 10 grams (0.35 oz)
  • methamphetamine: 25 grams (0.88 oz)

  • 10 grams (0.35 oz) of any or any combination of the following:
    • N, α-dimethyl-3,4-(methylenedioxy)phenethylamine (MDMA)
    • α-methyl-3,4-(methylenedioxy)phenethylamine (MDA)
    • N-ethyl-α-methyl-3,4-(methylenedioxy)phenethylamine (MDEA)

MDP = Mandatory Death Penalty under Singaporean law.

The possession, consumption, manufacturing, import, export, or trafficking of these and other controlled drugs in any amount are illegal. Persons caught with less than the Mandatory Death Penalty amounts of these controlled substances face penalties ranging from caning (up to 24 strokes) to life in prison. Pursuant to a law change in 2009, cannabis (marijuana) and marijuana mixtures (diluted with other substances) are treated the same under Singapore law—the presumed intent is trafficking.
