Community vapoteurs feared the worst from Europe. But member states and the European Parliament have finally signed an agreement, under the new legislation on tobacco, today Wednesday, December 18, harbinger beautiful days the electronic cigarette.
Relief in vapoteurs.
Sigh of relief rechargeable electronic cigarette will always be available. With the removal of these, which had been proposed, and the only conservation of those single cartridge, it was announced the death of vapotage. Indeed, rechargeable cigarettes are 95% of the market. Refills, however, will be limited to 2 ml, which corresponds to a dozen types of electronic cigarettes. The dosage of nicotine also appeared as one of the points of delicate negotiation.
As requested by the European Parliament, it is now set at 20mg/ml, a limit which remains entirely correct since it corresponds to the needs of very heavy smokers. Dozens of flavors currently available are a priori more danger, despite the willingness of Europe, at first, to make them disappear in favor of the only perfumes already used in nicotine replacement . Nothing was gained in this tussle between the member countries of the EU and the European Parliament, which never ceased to postpone their decision.
Status of the e-cigarette: no big changes.
Countries of the European Union classifying the electronic cigarette as a drug will continue to do so, while the rest, they will be under no obligation to come here. In short, the status of the electronic cigarette is the same. Its sale is still forbidden to minors. In terms of the advertising, either no novelty.
Good news for all fans of Vapoteuse, consumers or dealers, but they must also be prepared to have to deal with future conflicts, predictable, as earlier, between the reseller of electronic cigarettes to his neighbor manager tobacconist, Haute -Garonne, the portends.
