UK to ban disposable vapes, restrict flavours and do more stupid stuff

The UK government has decided it will ban disposable vapes and suggests it will ban vape flavours. This will trigger more smoking, more illicit trade and more workarounds. The problem of youth vaping is a non-problem and the government is reacting to a moral panic it doesn't understand. You may be aware that the UK government is in the process of caving in to a moral panic on vaping while taking pointless action on smoking. 

12.90% of the adult population are current smokers. There are approximately 7.2 million current smokers in United Kingdom 14.60% of men are current smokers but only 11.20% of women.
