Here are the names of 10 such uncommon things. No doctor’s prescription meant no access to buy them!
10. S-ee-x Toys
At earlier times, any toy that stimulated the human genital organs faced a ban on purchases. But, they were an addiction to some people. They could be bought after a prescription.
Only a person who showed a medical prescription can buy contraceptives. Certainly, there was no logic behind the rule, but still, it was followed.
8. Chewing Gum
Singapore announced a ban on chewing gums. Only a person who needed it to cure dental issues can buy a gum over there. No general store at Singapore sells them.
Excess intake of alcohol destroys peace and creates a fuss. To surpass the issue the government issued a law. A doctor’s prescription was mandatory to get alcohol.
Cigarettes have an adverse effect on peoples’ health. Back to the 80’s the cigarettes contained even more harmful compounds. A doctor’s suggestion was the only way to get them.
