Important Facts to Understand about Canadian Laws Implemented with Regard to E-Cigarettes

During this time, Canada allows the use of electronic cigarettes for the purpose of vaping but they prevent any imports, advertisement or selling of these products in their country if they contain nicotine. Dr. Carl Phillips, a popular professor from the University of Alberta, explained the rules implemented by Health Canada to prevent any selling or advertising of electronic cigarettes containing nicotine in Canada. Here are some of the reasons stated by Dr. Philips why Health Canadadian law does not approve electronic cigarettes in Canada.

1.Improper use could lead to Nicotine Poisoning
2.It needs to receive market authorization
3.It can cause Addiction
4.Quality Control

Health Canada only warns the consumers about the purchase and use of e-cigarettes but they do not impose any rule on its usage. Aside from Canada, a lot of countries also share their own opinions with regard to electronic cigarettes.

Some of the countries that approve selling of e-cigarettes are Austria, Denmark, Netherlands, New Zealand (with prescription), United Kingdom and USA, though some of the states are trying to ban them.

The countries that rejected e-cigarette are Australia (selling is illegal), Canada (Import, sales and advertising), Brazil (Import, sales and advertising), Panama (importing sales and advertising), Singapore (illegal even for personal consumption) and Thailand (importing and sales).

Actually, some people who are using electronic cigarettes think that the tobacco companies are putting a lot of pressure on the government with regard to bans on the sale and importation of electronic cigarettes. Though it is not factually proven, some people think this way. This is because the implementation and approval for sale of an electronic cigarette in Canada  will be a big threat for the tobacco companies. The people who will use e-cigarettes will be one less tobacco user.

A lot of countries followed the recommendation of FDA with regard to e-cigarettes and follow the rules implemented in the United States and canada
