176 caught with e-vaporisers at ZoukOut on Sentosa

A total of 176 people were caught with e-vaporisers at ZoukOut 2023 held at Siloso Beach, Sentosa on Dec 2 and 3.

Their ages ranged from 18 to 51 years old. All e-vaporisers were seized and confiscated.

The operation was part of the Health Sciences Authority's efforts to enforce the prohibition against e-vaporisers in Singapore.

The possession, use or purchase of e-vaporisers is illegal and carries a maximum fine of $2,000.

If you have information on the illegal import, distribution, sale or offer for sale of e-vaporisers, you can contact HSA’s Tobacco Regulation Branch at 6684 2036 or 6684 2037 during office hours.

ZoukOut 2023 is the 20th edition of the music festival which started in 2000.

Twice named the "Best Leisure Event Experience" by the Singapore Tourism Awards, ZoukOut returned last year after a two-year hiatus due to the pandemic.
