In Quebec, total war has been declared on vaping! But the defense of vaping is there and will fight whatever the cost to give smokers the freedom to detoxify themselves from tobacco with flavored products.
A committee recently recommended that the government of Quebec ban the sale of flavored vaping products other than tobacco ”and to mimic the maximum concentration of nicotine in vaping products at 20 mg / ml. It did not take less for the Coalition of vaping rights to protest.
If the Coalition pleads in particular that " 93% of vapers choose another flavor to quit smoking », It must be said that vaping is currently in danger. The bill has not yet been voted on, but if it was soon, respecting Quebec's recommendations, it would therefore be over with flavored vaping.
according to Mario laframboise, Member of Parliament for Blainville, things are clear " That's what attracts young people, so it's clear that we received the report favorably. If we took the flavors away from cigarettes, I don't see why we would keep them for vaping. This is my personal position ". According to him, vaping is no better than smoking: “ It's harmful! Is it as much as cigarettes? I do not think so. But as for me, it would be neither! But I am aware that vaping allows some people to quit smoking. ».
The next ones will be decisive for the future of vaping in Quebec. If a ban on flavors were decided, the vaping industry in the country would be in danger of death.
