In Ireland, doctors do not appreciate the progress on the country's e-cigarette legislation. They recently stated that laws prohibiting the sale of e-cigarettes to children should be speeded up. According to them, it appears that more and more young people "fall" into the trap of vaping.
The country's doctors recently said laws banning the sale of e-cigarettes to children should be speeded up. These warnings are drawn from a recent brief presented before the budget vote by the Tobacco Royal College of Physicians.
Its president, the Dr. Des Cox, said that although vaping is considered less dangerous than smoking, the user still inhales nicotine, which is addictive.
« In recent years, e-cigarettes have become increasingly popular among young people in many countries. Urgent measures must be taken to prevent this from happening in Ireland" , did he declare. " Although e-cigarettes are considered less harmful than smoking, exposing young people to nicotine through the use of these products is a major health problem. »
The government had previously promised to ban the sale of e-cigarettes to less than 18 years, but its progress has been slow, despite fears that it could be a potential "gateway" to smoking. E-cigarettes are also presented as an option to stop smoking and doctors have pointed out that research should be conducted on their role in this area.
