THEREALSINGAPORE 18 September 2014 - 7:38am

On December 10, 2013, Uruguay became the first country in history to fully legalize recreational cannabis countrywide. Since then, the country has been working out the details of their impending retail market, and although they've recently announced delaying legal cannabis sales to 2015, they're still doing an admirable job of paving the road for other countries to follow. Which leads us to the logical question: Which countries will be the next to follow in Uruguay's footsteps? At Leafly we're keeping an eye on these 10 countries who are showing promising signs of full legalization in the near future.

PAP BRANCH CHAIRMAN TRIED TO BLAME WORKER'S PARTY FOR BAD QUALITY HDB FLATS

THEREALSINGAPORE 18 September 2014 - 7:22am

I seldom share Fabrications About The PAP posting but the following really makes me laugh. Instead of blaming HDB or rather, PAP's past CORRUPTED minister in charge of HDB of such poor quality HDB flat, they tried to blame WP Town Council! My response to these PAP IBs... Make up your mind. Isit due to "act of time" or man-made "nice square" For concrete to fall like that is unusual unless inferior cement was used in the construction phase.

THEREALSINGAPORE 18 September 2014 - 6:58am

Some Singaporeans blame foreigners for all their woes. Can't get a job? Foreigner took my job. Car too expensive? Foreigner bid up the COE. House too expensive? Foreigner pushed up the price. The truth is that he probably lost his job to a more talented Singaporean. The vast majority of cars each month are bought by Singaporeans - foreigners find it too ridiculously expensive. 


WELCOME TO SINGAPORE, THE ISLAND PARADISE WITHOUT BORDER CONTROLS

THEREALSINGAPORE 18 September 2014 - 6:55am

Like many other Singaporeans I was shocked reading recently about the mother and the former London Metropolitan detective she hired to help her recover her child and how easily they were able to enter Singapore illegally (see link). The mother had obtained a court order in the UK giving her custody of her son but the boy’s father had successfully applied for an injunction in Singapore to prevent her taking the child who resides with his grandparents.
