Fight against vaping: Singapore strengthens its legislation

Fight against vaping: Singapore strengthens its legislation

Since the introduction of the ban on electronic cigarettes in 2018, Singapore has seen discussions emerge on the effectiveness of this measure and the need to strengthen means to dissuade young people from vaping.

On May 8, the Health Sciences Authority announced a review of sanctions aimed at combating the advertising, importation and distribution of electronic cigarettes. She also highlighted initiatives to promote “pro-health” content, such as an anti-vaping campaign targeting young people.

Singapore is one of 39 countries worldwide that have banned electronic cigarettes, unlike 82 countries that regulate their sale and distribution.

Amid discussions about banning vaping in Singapore, some are wondering whether this approach is too cautious. Countries like New Zealand and the United Kingdom believe vaping is less harmful than smoking and can help smokers quit.
