French lawmakers approve bill to ban disposable e-cigarettes to protect youth drawn to their flavors

France's National Assembly unanimously approved a bill to ban single-use, disposable electronic cigarettes, in an attempt to protect young people drawn to their flavors and mitigate the environmental impacts of the disposable products known as “puffs.” Lawmakers adopted the bill in a late-night vote on Monday by 104 in favor, zero against. The bill, supported by the government, will then move to the Senate where it is expected to be adopted as well. It could go into effect by September 2024.


28.70% of the adult population are current smokers. There are approximately 15.2 million current smokers in France.
