In the past two years, Thailand has severely suppressed e-cigarettes and even treated e-cigarette consumers as criminals! Not only can't you smoke, even carrying it is illegal! This anti-trend approach will certainly have a huge negative impact.
The Thai authorities have finally realized that many problems have been discovered from the actual implementation of the regulations. Regardless of illegal import and smuggling, there are also cases in which the law enforcement process is difficult to control.
According to the report of Thailand China.com, Thailand is finally considering legalizing the import of electronic cigarettes!
Because the ban not only does not block e-cigarettes outside the country, it can be easily bought even in the ordinary market or on the online shopping platform. In other words, it is more manipulative to liberalize import restrictions and implement effective regulation from tariffs.
According to sources from the Thai Ministry of Commerce, it will discuss with the Ministry of Health, the Ministry of Finance and the Ministry of Tourism and Sports recently whether the e-cigarette import ban should be lifted. Officials said that they have received petitions from multiple parties (law enforcement and business circles) to legalize the import of e-cigarettes.
The current initial solution is to cancel the e-cigarette import ban, but at the cost of paying higher tariffs.
Officials believe that the primary problem that the parties discuss at present is to be able to prove that the e-cigarette hazard is not as large as ordinary cigarettes. There is a big difference in the focus of disputes on who is more harmful. Cigarette companies believe that e-cigarettes will produce more harmful substances after burning, and thus are more harmful to human health.
In contrast, e-cigarette supporters believe that smoking e-cigarettes is safer than regular cigarettes.
Throughout the world, governments have different attitudes toward e-cigarettes. The number of countries in the same camp is about 30, accounting for about 15% of the world. In other words, most countries still have relatively loose regulations on e-cigarettes.
For the Department of Commerce, as long as there is sufficient evidence to prove that e-cigarettes are less harmful than traditional cigarettes, it will not be difficult for the Ministry of Commerce to lift the ban.
