Importing and selling e-cigarettes will remain illegal – despite their pervasive use – after the health ministry yesterday advised against lifting the ban.

The continued ban on all types of electronic cigarettes used for vaping will “help protect non-smokers from health hazards,” Health Ministry Perm-Sec Kiattipoom Wongrachit said yesterday at a meeting of the government’s tobacco board.

 

Kiattipoom added that it was necessary to deter young smokers.

“The ban on the sale of e-cigarettes is an important measure to protect children from victimization,” he said.
