Czech ban on flavored e-cigarettes goes into effect from Monday, Oct. 23

Starting on Monday, the sale of flavored heated tobacco will be banned in the Czech Republic as required by a European directive. EU member states must incorporate the ban into their legal frameworks with effect from October 23, and the directive does not allow for any transitional period for the sale of existing stock. Various flavors are already prohibited in traditional cigarettes, and this ban will now apply to heated tobacco products. Tobacco companies argue that flavored tobacco products are popular among users, and the U.S. experience with such a ban has shown that some people switch back to regular cigarettes.


28.30% of the adult population are current smokers. There are approximately 2.5 million current smokers in Czech Republic 33.40% of men are current smokers but only 23.50% of women.
