Two years after entering the Russian market, the American manufacturer of e-cigarettes Juul may be forced to restrict its activities in the country. The new version of the bill on the regulation of nicotine delivery products (ENDS) prohibits the sale of devices containing e-liquids, the proportion of nicotine of which exceeds 20 mg. Regarding Juul, the indicator reaches 50 mg.
The American manufacturer of e-cigarettes Juul Labs may soon be unable to sell its products in Russia. Lawmakers are currently discussing a bill that would ban the sale of e-cigarettes with more than 20 mg of nicotine in the e-liquid.
This is the site Kommersant which clarifies the information based on a copy of the bill.
Citing sources, the Russian website says that the second reading of the bill in the Duma, the lower house of parliament, should be completed by the end of this week. In order to stay in Russia, Juul will have to comply with the law and reduce the dose of nicotine in his devices.
