Electronic cigarettes will be equaled to snuff?
Several medical communities have expressed their wonder and disappointment that Spanish legislation decided about consumption of electronic cigarettes states "El Mundo" newspaper.
"From medical point of view this product should be regulated the same way as snuff - i.e. its' use should be prohibited in public places but in advertisement it is necessary to follow the same restrictions as usual cigarettes. President of The Spanish Society of Epidemiology Esteve Fernandez has marked that in the nearest future they want to appeal to senate and legalize corresponding amendments.
Among new measures that according to experts' opinion could be introduced is the stricter determination of the space where smoking of electronic cigarettes is allowed, regulation of their advertising and introduction of excise taxes on corresponding products. Among risks related to electronic cigarettes is marked out harmful effect caused by nicotine inhaling."
