New regulations on vaping could come into effect as early as January 2017 under a EU new crack down.
Today new EU Tobacco laws were have been written to restrict the supply, manufacture and promotion of anything tobacco or nicotine related, but all of these products have helped millions of people quite smoking.
Some are calling this a ‘Vapers Tax’, but the new laws are not clear if they are aimed at adding tax to such products. Last year Public Health England backed vaping to be a good way to quit smoking and even though about putting E-cigs on a prescription.
Whats going to change?
The main change is going to be aimed at the size of the bottles allowed to be sold of ‘Vape Juice’. A maximum size of 10ml per bottle will be put in place along with a max nicotine strength of 20mg/ml.
This will post difficulties for for people just starting to quit smoking as they mainly look for 24mg/ml juices and this will also cause issues for users of ‘sub ohm’ vapes as they mainly use 30ml or more bottles.
The ammount of fluid in tanks are also set to change and you will only be allowed to buy 2ml tanks, this is a massive drop from the average of 10ml.
The restrictions on promoting such products are also set to change and come in to line with that of alcohol.
What do you think?
Do you think this may push vaping to an underground society where people will sell juice on the black market?
Do you think these new regulations are good and will help the public?
