France planning to ban disposable vapes in effort to combat smoking

Disposable vapes will be banned in France as part of a national plan to combat smoking, the prime minister said on Sunday. Élisabeth Borne told the broadcaster RTL that the government would “soon present a new national plan to fight against smoking with, in particular, the prohibition of disposable electronic cigarettes, the famous ‘puffs’ which give bad habits to young people”. She said the plan did not include another tax rise on cigarettes, adding: “But that does not mean we are not vigilant about tobacco consumption.” Her main concern is disposable vapes, known as “puffs” in France, which she says are a gateway to smoking.
