I think - based on some reading that I have done on the topic - that both are harmful and both should be avoided. I do not think there is a point in banning 1 or the other. I have not heard of any government trying to ban e-cigarettes yet, is there one that is discussing that?

Same for me .Both are harmful & both should be avoided .In my view if you are banning one & not banning second then its quite strange because both are equally harmful .The Indian government has banned E cigarettes while normal cigarettes is still available & that is out of my mind .

Well,  it poses so much threat on life of an individual,  so if it's banned,  one shouldn't even cry over that because it is a good move; should I tag it 'STEP TO PRESERVATION OF LIFE'???? 😂😂😂

As there were number of cases of explosion as well as number of products which contained banned chemicals, there was a bill reading in Hong Kong banning e-cigarettes in Jun/Jul, however, due to the protests against the Anti-Extradition Law Amendment Bill movement, most laws proposed or being read have been delayed.

I smoked cigarettes for 6 years and vaped for 8 years and vaping was one of the hardest things I have had to give up! I think most of the issue was the physical addiction because it was ALWAYS in my hand or in my pocket all day long.

Is not banning juat one mode and not all modes of amokong, just an Industrial lobby over taking the health concerns of the gullible citizens ??
