The Department of Health in Ireland has announced that it will not restrict vaping in closed public areas such as pubs, restaurants and offices because their current research results say that their is no reason to ban vaping indoors.
They did suggest that companies are welcome to create their own policy about vaping in their establishment, but it would not ban vaping indoors outright.
Politicians in Ireland are more concerned now of drafting the proposed regulations on vaping which include the banning of sales to minors, and capping the limit of e-juice to 10 ml a bottle.
The Irish Vape Vendors Association agree on proposed regulations such as childproof caps for e-juice bottles and the restriction of selling to minors, but think the 10ml cap is a little too ridiculous and unnecessary.
It is pretty obvious that the lawmakers in Ireland are more knowledgeable about vaping compared to our lawmakers here. Establishments here could create indoor vaping areas and we could have vape coffee shops but legislation banning indoor vaping all throughout prevents this from happening here in the U.S.
