Government announces plan for new restrictions on vaping, including ban at bars and restaurants
"Vaping is a significantly less harmful alternative to smoking and it has been used as an effective tool to quit smoking," Associate Health Minister Jenny Salesa said in a statement announcing the plan.
"However, it is not completely risk free and that’s why we need to make it as safe as possible and protect young people from taking it up," she added.
Some countries, and the UK is one of the offenders, have taken the opposite view and allow people to vape in all sorts of places were smoking is forbidden, evidently in the hope they will persuade people to vape instead of smoking.
