Welsh vapers protest ban

Welsh vapers protest ban

December 16, 2014

More than 1,200 people signed an online petition asking the Welsh government to stop its proposed ban on using e-cigarettes in enclosed public areas and the workplaces.

The Welsh government fears e-cigarettes could “re-normalize” traditional cigarettes. And it is concerned that e-cigarettes could be “gateway” to smoking for young people.

The Save E-cigs campaign group points to a poll by YouGov and Action on Smoking and Health (ASH), which found that only 1 percent of non-smokers have tried e-cigarettes. The group also says, “there is no evidence from our research that e-cigarettes are acting as a gateway into smoking.”
