e-Cigarettes to be Under Same Rules as Tobacco
Prince George, B.C.- The Province has announced that as of September 1st of this year, the rules and regulations on tobacco products, will also cover e-cigarettes.
Stats show that one in five youth in Canada have tried an e-cigarette, the Tobacco and Vapour Products Control Act is aimed at stopping the growing use of e-cigarettes by young people in BC.
As of September 1st, e-cigarettes are not to be sold to anyone under the age of 19 and there can be no advertising displays for the product aimed at youth and no advertising visible to youth.
The amended act means e-cigarettes cannot be sold in public buildings, their use is banned on public and private school grounds, indoor public spaces and workplaces. There are exceptions, in that local health authorities may establish designated smoking and vaping areas at their discretion , and customers in adult only stores may “vape” to learn how to use vapour products or to test products they might buy.
And like tobacco, the provincial government will tax the chite out of e-cigarettes and use it as a new revenue stream?
I sure hope so. Such duchebaggery should be taxed like mad.
Agreed, tax the hell out of em.
