DMS: E-Cigarettes give users same nicotine level as conventional cigarettes

BANGKOK, 31 May 2019 (NNT) - The Department of Medical Sciences Director General, Opas Karnkawinpong has revealed that e-cigarettes are currently prohibited from being imported or exported into or from Thailand according to the Ministry of Commerce’s announcement, however illegal sale of these products still takes place in Thailand, especially among teenagers who have been misinformed that e-cigarette vaping does not give them nicotine.

 

He said e-cigarettes not only involve users inhaling nicotine as in conventional cigarettes, but also include carcinogens, substances used for vaporization, as well as heavy metals and other toxins.

 

Regional Medical Sciences Center 6 Chonburi has tested samples from 51 e-cigarettes liquids confiscated by police stations in Chonburi from 2016 to 2018, which resulted in all samples containing nicotine despite some packaging claiming to be nicotine-free. The manufacturing of e-cigarettes liquids which is not regulated by law may give users too great a dosage of nicotine, leading to addiction among young new users, which can lead to a smoking addiction and the use of illegal drugs.

Of course they contain nicotine: that's the whole point.  What they don't contain are the same levels of dangerous chemicals as cigarettes. It appears to be a win win situation that Thai authorities have turned in to lose lose.

 

Certainly Public Health England is convinced e-cigarettes are 95% safer than conventional cigarettes (when properly regulated).

 

If ecigarettes confiscated in Thailand contain dangerous levels of either nicotine or toxins- something I doubt- then that has been caused by banning them in the first place, so that unscrupulous black marketeers don't have to work to safe standards.
