"These measures are designed to protect our children and young people from starting to smoke electronic cigarettes," Donnelly said "We recognize that  is a highly addictive drug, and we are taking action today to make these products less accessible to our young people, and to remove the advertising of these products from our children's daily lives."


These proposals will be incorporated into the Public Health (Tobacco and  Inhalation Products) Act currently being drafted. The bill is expected to be completed and published before the end of the year. The legislation will aim to regulate any product that can be used for the consumption of  vapor or any component of the product.


The Act already contains measures to prohibit the sale of  inhalation products to people under the age of 18, and to introduce a licensing system for the retail sale of tobacco products and inhalation products. Other measures included in the Act include:


People under the age of 18 are prohibited from selling tobacco products and  inhalation products;

Feighan welcomed the government's approval of these measures.


"In our country, smoking continues to cause about 4500 deaths every year," he said. "We recognize that some adult smokers use  inhalation products to help them quit smoking.


However, we are very clear that these products will not benefit our children and young people or non-smokers in any way, which is why we take this action today. "
