  • Call For Low-Cost Vaping In Poor Countries

    Call For Low-Cost Vaping In Poor Countries

    SMOKERS in the developing world should have low-cost e-cigarettes made available to them, researchers say, to help them quit their deadly habit. The urgent need for the price of vaping to be reduced in the developing world was also branded a “human rights issue” at a leading industry conference in London. Experts agreed smokers in poor countries are currently unlikely to be able to afford nicotine-based products to help them quit and vaping products should therefore be made more attainable. There are currently 1.1 billion smokers in the world with six million dying each year as a direct result of...

    Tobacco Giant Slammed For City Vape Partnership

    British American Tobacco (BAT) has been branded “a disgrace” for its part in a UK city’s vaping project, which has seen their e-cigarettes being dispensed as stop smoking aids. In a report by the UK's Observer newspaper, it has been revealed in emails obtained under the Freedom of Information Act that the tobacco giant and Birmingham City Council have been piloting a project together to exclusively promote its vape products to smokers wanting to quit tobacco. Health campaigners say the tie-in breaches established local government guidelines, which regulate the role of tobacco companies in public health and promote transparency. Under...

    India's Total Vape Ban Condemned

    PRO vape groups in India have condemned its government’s decision to ban e-cigarettes while allowing millions to continue smoking – and are considering trying to reverse it through the supreme court. Following the Health Ministry’s announcement last week that vaping is to be banned imminently throughout the country, the Association of Vapers’ India (AVI) is leading a growing group of advocates for harm reduction alternatives who are questioning its decision. It has asked the government why, if they are worried about the affect of nicotine on its population, it hasn’t outlawed cigarettes too in a country where 120 million people...

    Free Vapes For Prisoners

    Prisoners are to be handed free vaping kits as jails in Scotland go tobacco-free. Cigarettes will be banned in all prisons from November 30th to bring them in line with UK law, which forbids smoking in public places.
