Panama’s National Assembly has passed a bill that would prohibit sales of vaping products and restrict where they can be used. The vape product ban will not become law until signed by President Laurentino Cortizo, who vetoed an earlier version of Bill 178.
The new law would ban sales of all vaping products, with or without nicotine. The ban would also apply to heated tobacco products (HTPs) like IQOS. The bill was sponsored by the President of the Assembly, Deputy Crispiano Adames.
