E-cigarette ban in enclosed public spaces pushing ahead in Wales.

Despite the evidence to the contrary, and despite the fact that both the English government and the Scottish government have decided otherwise, the Welsh government are determined to ban e-cigarettes in public places.

Those that have come out against this ban, citing that there is no evidence for it, are Action on Smoking and Health (ASH), Cancer Research UK, the UK Centre for Tobacco and Alcohol Studies and the British Heart Foundation in Wales.

The Welsh government are though sticking to their opinions and have stated they feel children are being led into smoking via vaping, though the facts at present show the complete opposite. They feel e-cigarettes will normalise smoking, when again the facts do support this, plus there is also no harm to bystanders from e-cigarettes vapour, the very reason that smoking in public was banned.

George Butterworth, tobacco policy manager for Cancer Research UK said,

“There was no evidence of normalisation of e-cigarettes with young people - and those using them were very, very small numbers.

Those that are, are the type of people who would try alcohol or tobacco cigarettes anyway - so without that evidence we wouldnt support a ban on the use of e-cigarettes indoors under the idea of normalisation, he said.

E-cigarettes are an opportunity for people to move away from tobacco smoking which is very, very bad for their health, and we wouldnt want to put up any barriers to prevent people from quitting cigarettes.
