Penalty for Publicly Selling E-Cigarettes in Johor, Malaysia
Johor e-cigarette dealers warned of penalties for openly selling e-cigarettes by local government, Mohd Jafni Md Shukor reports.

According to Sinar Harian, e-cigarette dealers in Johor, Malaysia will face penalties from the local government (PBT) if found openly selling e-cigarettes.


According to the Director of the Johor Housing and Local Government Committee, Datuk Mohd Jafni Md Shukor, once complaints from the public regarding the widespread sale of e-cigarettes are received, the measure will be immediately implemented.


Basically, Johor is one of the two states that prohibit the public sale of e-cigarettes, but we will not enforce it aggressively because we are more focused on foreign traders. However, at the state level, we still prohibit the public sale of e-cigarettes. We advise them to comply with the state government regulations, and if there are complaints from the community, we will take action.


It is reported that the ban on e-cigarettes was implemented in January 2016 by the then Sudanese leader Ibrahim Iskandar, and is still being strictly enforced in Johor today.


Mohamed reminds all e-cigarette retailers to comply with the issued ban in order to avoid unnecessary legal issues arising from illegal sales.
