UK vape ban – level 3

02-02-2024 15:00

The UK government is set to ban disposable vapes to combat the rising youth vaping trend.

This initiative, aimed at protecting children’s health, also includes measures to prevent marketing vapes to youngsters and curb underage sales. Although it’s already illegal to sell vapes to those under 18, disposable vapes, with their vibrant packaging, contribute significantly to the surge in youth vaping. Prime Minister Rishi Sunak assures access to alternatives for adult smokers trying to quit. Despite the UK Vaping Industry Association’s concerns about potential black market growth, the government emphasizes the need to address the alarming increase in youth vaping. The proposal aligns with a broader effort to create a smoke-free generation, with potential implementation in 2025.

Difficult words: curb (to restrain or keep in check), vibrant (bright or exciting).
