Flavoured vapes ban 'needed now' as manufacturer urges stricter laws on e-cigs

A ban on flavoured vape products is urgently needed to stop them being targeted at underage users, a company which produces the products said yesterday. BAT Ireland called for confectionery, dessert and soft drink flavours to be proscribed to stop products appealing to minors. The company made the comments in response to the public consultation on vaping recently launched by Health Minister Stephen Donnelly. A ban on flavours that target the underage are part of a range of measures being proposed by the company to make the industry more responsible.
