Government to consider banning sale of vaping products to under-18s

The government is to consider restricting the sale of vaping products to minors and prohibiting advertising.

Taoiseach Leo Varadkar said that any changes to legislation on e-cigarettes will be based on scientific advice and what is advised by public health doctors and experts.

Fianna Fail leader Micheal Martin claimed the vaping industry is targeting children and young people through colourful and flavoured vaping products and ads.

Mr Martin accused the industry of trying to “hook” young people to get them addicted to nicotine through the vaping devices.

He claimed these strategies mirrored the ones used by the tobacco industry.
