HEALTH MINISTER SIMON Harris has been sharply critical of the tobacco industry in its approach to marketing e-cigarettes and vaping products.

Summing up the results of the Health Behaviours in School-aged Children (HBSC) 2018 study, Harris said:

“We’re seeing fewer children in Ireland smoke, we’re seeing fewer children in Ireland that use cannabis, [...] Although there was a five-percentage-point drop in children aged 10-17 who had tried smoking, Harris expressed concern that 22% of 12-17 year olds said they had tried vaping, and that 9% said they had tried it in the past 30 days.
