Scottish Government considering ban on e-cigarettes
Scottish Government has indicated that it is considering a ban on sale of e-cigarettes to those under the age of 18 years.
E-cigarettes are often marketed as safer alternative to smoking and have been used by many former smokers. There is currently no age limit for e-cigarettes but experts have said that there will be stricter controls on the sale of the e-cigarettes.
Scottish Government has outlawed smoking by drivers in their own car in the presence of a child. Ministers are considering reforms surrounding tobacco and electronic cigarettes and e-cigarettes might soon be banned for those under the age of 18 years.
The government will soon putout a paper consultation with the public and a range of organisations. They will also consider allowing local authorities to designate smoke-free zones around outdoor children's play-parks to protect children from harm. Health activists have welcomedthe proposals that are aimed at reducing smoking for the new generation.
Sheila Duffy, chief executive of anti-smoking charity Ash Scotland, said, "We are delighted the Scottish Government is exploring further measures to tackle the harm caused by smoking as we move towards our goal of a tobacco- free Scotland."
