Shisha tobacco will be banned in Singapore starting later this month, according to media reports.
Parliamentary Secretary for Ministry of Health Muhammad Faishal Ibrahim said in Parliament on Tuesday that the ministry would ban the importation, distribution and sale of shisha from later this month to prevent the “proliferation and entrenchment of shisha smoking in Singapore”, according to Channel NewsAsia.
Faishal reportedly said that, as a transitional measure, existing licensed tobacco importers and retailers who import or sell shisha tobacco would be allowed to import and retail shisha tobacco until the end of July in 2016.
Shisha has become a trendy pursuit among Singapore youths hanging out in Middle Eastern-themed cafes near Arab Street. However, health experts have warned that a single session of smoking shisha is the same as smoking 200 cigarettes.
