Big Joke: E-cigarettes are bad for you and they are illegal

Recommended Posts

Sadly, I fear e-cigs will never be legal in Thailand, or even tolerated.  It's totally bizarre when one considers that mainstream science concludes that they are very much safer than cigarettes.  Public Health England estimates they are 95% safer than cigarettes.

Sorry, wrong AGAIN...

Would it be ok to pass this decree on to all foreign embassies to include in their "do not do in Thailand list" ? They have already lost my brother and his wife, Centara types, as returning visitors over this but I'm sure many intending tourists would be very unhappy to find out that having switched to vaping for health reasons they cannot enjoy this relatively safe alternative on holiday in Thailand and would succumb to the urge to return to smoking life threatening tobacco. 

At least it's good to know that before you decided where to drop your not unsubstantial holiday cash, unlike the now overwelcome Chinese running in packs behind a flag bearer and spending nothing ! 

It's a depressing country from a common sense prevails aspect and it's wearing me down. I no longer recommend a visit to friends as I have been admonished twice already and laughed at for not changing my multiple holiday destination to a country with a more mentally stable administration.

Smoking and using an e-cigarette has been illegal in Thailand since 2014.

No it's not, the laws are absolutely unclear and are about import and export of said devices. 

 

It's even unclear what said devices are as liquid is just vegetable glycerin, pg and aroma u can buy in every pharmacy. 

 

Mods are just battery packs with a connector... 

 

This is just thai bs law especially if u bought the ecig in thailand itself.

Why wasn't it illegal before that?

Hmmm MAYBE because there was NOT a problem...???
Difficult to forbid things you do not know exist... OR?

My Thai B in L, was given a vaping kit, to help wean him off the 'hard' stuff, just a couple of years ago.

 

This was at the big rehabilitation centre, north of Khon Kaen, just off the H2.

 

Much better now: though the Listerine got to him.

Thailand is to be commended for its stand on e-cigarettes aka vaping.

You have been hopefully misinformed regarding the safety of e-cigs.... unless of course you know better than Health England, the Royal college of Physicians, Cancer research UK, American Academy of Sciences. etc.

Here's the mainstream science view from the UK, which leads to the conclusion that vaping is 95% safer than cigarettes:  you'll notice at the end is a comprehensive list of studies from peer reviewed submissions.

Tell Mr. Big Joke...

Cigarettes are Bad for you too! But they are 100% bad for your Health also. But they are not Banned Why??? (Reason... Big Money Talks!!

 

E cigarettes might be Bad for you also... But less then 20% Bad for your Health... But they are Banned.....?? Why?? (Reason because they reduce profits Big Money is making every day on "Real Cigarettes"

 

Health Department cannot prove E-Cigarettes are more dangerous then real Cigarettes!! Only thing they can prove is that E-Cigarettes are a Danger to Profits made in Thailand on Sale of real Cigarettes! Period!

 

Alcohol is Dangerous to your Health also, So is Beer... Sales to under age buyers. Not once in 15 years in Thailand have I seen someone checking I.D. of Cigarette or Alcohol Buyers.... Start here! Ban sales of shops who get caught! Take away their right to sell!!  Police would make More Money on Fines of Shops and underage smokers... But they will never do this because it will interfear with Big Money's Profits!

 

License and let Thai Cigarette Monopoly here sell E-Cigarettes...? Yes? Ban would be gone by Midnight Time! Proof? Read below...

So are normal smokes, so why are they still legal?

 

Exactly, should ban them before these e cigarettes, so many people still hooked on them knowing full well the consequences.
