Senate President Pro Tempore Ralph Recto said on Tuesday that he would push for the imposition of tax on alternative products to cigarette smoking such as vapes and e-cigarettes.

During the Senate interpellation of a bill seeking to increase excise tax on tobacco products, Recto asked Sen. Sonny Angara if alternative products to cigarette smoking were being taxed.

“I was told by the head of the tax office that these products are currently not taxed in the country,” Angara said.
