In the margins of Global forum on Nicotine which took place in Warsaw a few days ago, the results of an edifying ranking have been made public. This ranking listed countries based on interest in e-cigarettes as a means of reducing risk.
In this survey, on the 36 national organizations representing users of the electronic cigarette, 33 named Thailand as the worst country in the field. Australia, with 18 nominations, was ranked as the second worst country while India was third (16 country).
« Thailand has a draconian approach with tourists as well as locals regularly arrested for vaping. The police often search vehicles at roadblocks, and impose in fines if she finds cigarettes. This is not only terrible for Thai smokers who want to quit, but it also makes it a country to avoid for tens of millions of tourists and business people from all over the world " , said Asa Ace Saligupta who leads the consumer group End Cigarette Smoke Thailand.
Among the countries considered as the best in the world, the United Kingdom comes first with 32 votes, while Germany has 25 and France 23. The United Kingdom Government is thus considered by the authors of the classification as the most remarkable case in terms of vaping. Four years ago he was trying to ban all e-cigarettes on the market.
« Today, the United Kingdom has three million vapers, accelerating the decline of smoking among the British "Said the professor Gerry Stimson, of the British charity New Nicotine Alliance. The survey was conducted at the annual Global Forum on Nicotine (Global Forum on Nicotine) in Warsaw, which this year attracted 500 delegates from 60 country.
The organizations surveyed are members of the International Network of Nicotine Consumer Organizations. Each member has been authorized to nominate up to five countries in the worst category and five of the best from a list of 100's most populous nations in the world.
