Irish Government Will Not Ban Indoor Vaping

indoor vapingThe 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.

Former smoker turned vaper since 2013. I blog about questions that I and others might have about vaping. All I can say is it's a better alternative to cigarettes, nicotine gum, patches or medication, no matter what the Big Tobacco backed media says!

    1. Yes, EU compared to the US a very big difference. Our government is still trying to think of all sorts of reasons to regulate vaping while their European counterparts have already accepted the clear fact that vaping is less harmful than smoking. All they are doing now in Europe is negotiate ways in where they can tax vaping without disappointing the vapers.
