Say No to Illegal Drugs

It is imperative that you stay away from illegal drugs at all times. The penalties for drug offences in Hong Kong are severe and can result in significant fines and long prison sentences.

Under the Dangerous Drug Ordinance (DDO), anyone found in possession; or smokes, inhales, ingest or injects a dangerous drug, shall be liable upon conviction to a fine HK$ 1,000,000 and imprisonment for 7 years.


Ban on CBD Products – From 1 February, 2023, Cannabidiol (CBD) has been listed as a dangerous drug under the DDO in Hong Kong. Under the DDO, it is an offense for any person to involve in trafficking (import and export), sales, possession and consumption of CBD products.  Offenders may be subject to fines and penalty of imprisonment.  Please refer to HERE for details.  “Let’s Stand Firm.

Smoke-free Campus and Ban on Alternative Smoking Products – HKU is a smoke-free campus. Smoking is prohibited on campus, both indoors and outdoors.  Apart from this, the Government had imposed a ban on alternative smoking products (ASP).  Under the Smoking (Public Health) (Amendment) Ordinance 2021, it is an offense for any person to import, promote, manufacture, sell, or possess for commercial purposes alternative smoking products (ASP), including electronic smoking products, heated tobacco products and herbal cigarettes.  Please check out some common FAQs and more information from the TACO for details. “Do the Best Thing For Yourself: Quit Smoking!”
