Back in November when the government of British Columbia announced it would enact new vaping restrictions in order to protect youth, little concern was paid to the tens of thousands of adults in the province who rely on vaping as a tool to quit smoking.
In mid-December, the provincial government released details of the changes in what it calls an “Intentions Paper,” which if enacted, would destroy adult access and choice to vaping products in the province.
In this episode of RegWatch we are joined by Stacey White the co-owner of Thunderbird Vapes and ardent defender of vaping rights in B.C. Hear her reaction to how the proposed regulations would classify nicotine as a “Health Hazard,” cap nicotine strength, cap e-liquid containers, cap tank size, ban zero nic e-liquid, and ban most, if not all flavours.
Add on top a 20% sales tax and intentions are clear: the BC NDP-led provincial government aims to crush vaping with a ban, in all but name.
As the deadline for public consultation fast approaches: what could be done to stave off disaster?
