Are Poppers Legal In Singapore?Are poppers legal in this super strict country that we live in – Singapore. This is something we get asked very often here at SGPoppers.com. The legality of poppers in Singapore has always been questioned, and discussions have been kept hush-hush. We see news articles with headlines like BANNED sex drugs and HSA reports claiming that a certain popper product has been blacklisted due to it containing Amyl Nitrite in its contents. Well, we plan to put the age old debate to rest right now.
So.. are they legal?
Back in the day, poppers that contained Amyl Nitrite were once regarded as a recreational high. The Amyl Nitrite content in these poppers were in fact a prescription only medicine, with the sole purpose of treating certain heart conditions. Amyl Nitrite was prescribed solely as a medicine, and rightfully fall under the purview of the county’s law and statutes under medicines and drugs. Inhaling such products without a prescription is a definite NO. You are not allowed to own these NOR perform the act of inhaling it without a valid doctors prescription.
“Poppers are ‘NOT’ legal.”
What About Pentyl/Iso Butyl/Isopropyl Nitrite Poppers?
Poppers that contain Pentyl/IsoButyl/Isopropyl Nitrite are unclassified. They are neither listed as a medicine, nor has it been highlighted as a poison – yet). These blends are fine to have in your possession with the exception of Amyl nitrite that falls under the Singapore poisons act stated here.
“So.. are these poppers legal in Singapore!?”
However!Owning them is all fine and good BUT, know that the act of inhaling it is illegal as this constitutes as substance abuse. What this means is that if you even take a whiff/smell/sniff of poppers, you are now engaging in illegal activity. DO NOT DO IT!
They are NOT illegal however if you use said poppers for something other than inhaling/sniffing. For example – Cleaning. These very capable solvent cleaners have their places in commercial/industrial/cleaning applications. In fact. they are excellent cleaners that can put a real, deep shine to your leather jackets! Here we have attached an article written by Vice, to show you just how useful poppers can be when it comes to cleaning. Owning a bottle of poppers at home for the sake of polishing your rice cooker or crock pot is hardly an illegal activity. If your bottle of rush does not contain Amyl Nitrite AND you do not inhale it in any way or form, you are using it right.
“So.. poppers are illegal after all!”
