Italy vape news: Italy is ready to tighten the regulations on electronic cigarettes. Electronic cigarette products are not allowed to smoke in public places, and smoking near children and pregnant women will be punished. Law enforcement officials will be fined, and the relevant regulations will also minimize the advertising of electronic cigarettes and remove the smoking area of the airport.
Recently,the Italian Minister of Health, Orazio Schillaci proposed to extend the smoking ban in public places in Italy.
Schillaci’s plan also covers vapes, which will cover the external areas of bars and public transport stations, as well as parks (if pregnant women and children are present).
Vittorio Sgarbi, the junior culture minister, said Schillaci’s view was daunting and said that such a ban would encourage people to smoke instead.
“This is a typical manifestation of autocratic and authoritarian regime,” Skalby told Adn Kronos news agency.
According to The Blitz, Matteo Salvini, the Italian Minister of Infrastructure and Transport, was also angry at the proposed law. He said that it was because of vape that he quit smoking.
“vapes are helping many people quit regular cigarettes,” Salvini wrote on Twitter.
According to the data of the Italian ISS Institute of Health, about 24% of adult Italians were smokers last year – about 12.4 million people, which is the highest percentage since 2009.
The government passed an indoor smoking ban in 2003, which took effect two years later.
The health association Fondazione Umberto Veronesi estimates that at least 43000 people in Italy die from smoking-related diseases every year.
