Reasons why E-Cigarettes are banned in some countries.
In spite of the fact that e-cigarettes are much less harmful than the traditional tobacco cigarettes, some countries decided to ban them anyway. Reasons for that are maybe noble, but why to strip people from such an effective option of helping them to quit this nasty addiction?
One of these countries is Singapore. They’ve implemented complete ban for distribution as well as for the import of all products, which are related to e-cigarettes. The decision has been made basing on children and their potentially increased predilection for smoking.
Another one is Panama, which has banned e-cigarettes across the whole country. Not only import is forbidden, but also their sale. Whole thing has been habituated by Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Punishment for distribution of e-cigarettes or necessary appliances is very severe.
Canada also belongs on the list of countries, where e-cigarettes are prohibited. The main reason for that concerns health risk, which go along with using e-cigs. However, they apparently didn’t take under consideration all the benefits that one can gain from flavoured vapors.
Since September 21, 2011, e-cigarettes are also banned in Lebanon. Trading has been transformed into trafficking, which entrails serious, legal implications. So, if you’re planning to visit Lebanon soil in the near future, be sure you have all your e-products lying safely back home; otherwise you can get into very stern troubles.
The strongest prejudice, however, is showed by Brazil. Total ban on all e-cigs and accessories has been made due to health concerns, which in case of electronic cigarettes are emphasized by health agencies and Government itself. Everything is based on vestigial information about side effects and impact on good health of inhabitants. Sale, import, advertises and using these products is prohibited and entails to austere punishments.
