e-cigarette regulation; Australia bans recreational vaping

CANBERRA: As part of a crackdown on e-cigarette use among teenagers, Australia has banned recreational vaping. The new law will only allow them to be sold in pharmacies and require pharmaceutical-type packaging. The new law also intends to restrict sales.

E-cigarette manufacturers, according to Health Minister Mark Butler, are adding flavours and flashy packaging to create a new generation of nicotine addicts. The majority of these are aimed at children. Sold in the form of lollipops and chocolate bars. Studies have shown that this creates more e-cigarette addicts.

E-cigarettes are causing issues in both high schools and elementary schools. Doctors also requested the government to save the youth from this, the minister said.

In Ireland
The Irish government has also begun enacting legislation to prohibit the sale of e-cigarettes, but sellers argue that their sales are primarily intended to assist people in quitting smoking.

According to studies, approximately 200,000 people in the country use e-cigarettes, but the number is actually higher.
