As of September, new laws surrounding the sale, promotion and use of e-cigarettes will come into effect. While local retailers and producers say the restrictions are needed, they are tired of “vapes” being treated like tobacco.

The government’s announcement says the Tobacco and Vapour Products Control Act, “is designed to protect youth from the unknown effects of e-cigarette vapour and from becoming addicted to nicotine, which is why it will treat e-cigarette use exactly the same as tobacco, with the same bans and restrictions.”
