EU vote on electronic cigarettes ‘makes no sense’

19 Jul

Users of e-cigarettes (known as vapers) have protested, arguing that through e-cigarettes they were able to kick the tobacco habit. By Martin Banks in Brussels 4:18PM BST 14 Jul 2013 The vote was intended to make tobacco smoking less attractive to young people through mandatory warnings, minimum pack sizes, and rules on flavourings. However, the revision of the EU ‘Tobacco Products Directive’ would classify most e-cigarettes as a medicinal product, despite the fact that in the UK alone 25 percent of all attempts to kick the habit are made using e-cigarettes, making them the most popular aid. The European Commission had proposed that e-cigarettes containing 4 milligrammes or more of nicotine must be classed as medicinal products but an EU parliamentary committee went further, voting to classify all e-cigarettes as pharmaceuticals, regardless of the nicotine content. Users of e-cigarettes (known as vapers) have protested, arguing that through e-cigarettes they were able to kick the tobacco habit. They say classifying them as medical devices will mean they must undergo a costly and protracted authorisation processes before marketing.

But, if people just use them and it prolongs your dependency and makes it harder to quit, we dont know. So we need to do more research on understanding are they a good way to stop smoking, thats a good question. Theres no question many e-cigarette users are happy theyve transitioned from conventional cigarettes to vapor.
