The owners of a website with information on what they claim to be "productive uses of cannabis in Singaporean society" have been told to remove the contents entirely after an assessment by the Central Narcotics Bureau (CNB).

In a statement released on Tuesday afternoon, CNB confirmed that it had reviewed the Singapore Cannabis Awareness website and found it to be objectionable.

The Media Development Authority has ordered the owners to remove the website by Wednesday as it "contains material that promotes or tends to promote the use of a prohibited substance".

By Tuesday afternoon, the website appeared offline, but the Singapore Cannabis Awareness Facebook page was still live.
