According to the news from the China Post, recently, the public health department of the Taiwan authorities announced to the outside world that the government may ban the production and sales of electronic nicotine delivery devices, that is, electronic cigarette products, in the region from the second half of 2021.
According to reports, the Taipei Public Health Bureau has drafted an amendment to the tobacco control bill and submitted it to Parliament for deliberation.
The newly revised provisions of the tobacco control bill include: Prohibition of the production, import, sale, promotion and display of e-cigarettes and new tobacco products. After the amendment is passed, those who violate the ban will be fined between NT $10000 (about US $351) and NT $50000.
In fact, a person in charge of Taiwan's public health authorities said that e-cigarettes represent only a new health hazard. Overseas, there are many cases of e-cigarette liquid containing other harmful ingredients. In addition, the public health department is also concerned about the risk of explosion caused by such new tobacco products.
