Call for Nationwide Ban on Sale of E-cigarettes to Minors in Pakistan
According to a recent report by the Pakistani newspaper Nation, strict controls on the sale of e-cigarettes to minors in the Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa province have yielded significant results. As a result, other regions in Pakistan are also urging for a nationwide ban on the sale of e-cigarettes to underage individuals.
Advocates argue that implementing a comprehensive and uniform ban is crucial, as it holds significant importance in safeguarding the health of the nation's youth.
The widespread popularity of e-cigarettes, often marketed through attractive flavors and trendy designs, has raised serious concerns among health professionals and policy-makers. The adverse effects of e-cigarettes on respiratory health, as well as the potential for it to become an alternative pathway for traditional tobacco consumption, have prompted the decisive action of the government of Wokkan-Kyasat Province.
Zeeshan Danish, the project coordinator for the Tobacco Control Alliance Pakistan (CTC-Pak), has stated that the decision by the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province in Pakistan to ban the sale of e-cigarettes to minors is a crucial step towards fulfilling their commitment to public health.
