Gum, Now Available Over the Counter

Yahoo! News – Gum Returns to Singapore After 12 Years

To think that we have prescription drug problems — because the US badgered Singapore about it during a free trade agreement, now it will allow the sale of “therapeutic” gum — but the stuff costs $11 and it’s a controlled substance — you have to have your ID recorded before purchase. “Therapeutic” gums include Nicotine gum and “whitening” gums like Orbit. Critics on the one hand decry the increasing number of gum spots on the sidewalk, as well as the fact that it’s legal and cheaper there to get cigarettes and prostitutes without having your identity recorded.
