Panama Ban Challenged

Panama's vape ban has been challenged by the Panamanian Tobacco Harm Reduction Association and accepted by the Panamanian Supreme Court of Justice. The consumer advocacy organisation contends that the prohibition is unconstitutional and regional experts are hoping that the weight of evidence in favour of vaping and tobacco harm reduction will win the day. The Panamanian Tobacco Harm Reduction Association (ARDTP) says: “Panama's Supreme Court of Justice accepts the unconstitutionality lawsuit against Law 315 of 2022 that banned the use, importation and commercialisation of electronic nicotine delivery systems, such as e-cigarettes and heated tobacco products, in Panama.

5.10% of the adult population are current smokers. There are approximately 158,064 current smokers in Panama 8.00% of men are current smokers but only 2.30% of women.
