In Canada, e-cigarette regulations are currently being discussed in the province of Saskatchewan. The Saskatchewan Minister of Health, Jim Reiterindicates that the government could introduce a bill in October to regulate the use of electronic cigarettes in the province.
RESTRICTIONS ON AROMAS ... A POSSIBLE TAX?
The vaping products could be subject to regulations that are similar to those of tobacco products. In June, the Canadian Cancer Society sounded the alarm to warn the public about vaping among Saskatchewan youth and call for action by the provincial government. He had replied that he planned to legislate on this subject.
Jim Reiter is sorry that the electronic cigarette, presented as a help to quit smoking, is used by children: " It's disturbing that young people are introduced to nicotine. "
The Minister of Health said that the new regulation will include restrictions on the flavors of these vaping products sold at retailers, such as convenience stores. It does not exclude the possibility of taxing these products to discourage their use. Saskatchewan and Alberta are the only provinces that do not have legislation specifically regulating the use of e-cigarettes.
