Canada | NB is Warned That a Vape Flavour Ban Will Create a Black Market


As a ban on flavoured vaping products has gone into effect in the Canadian region of New Brunswick, Canadian vape groups are highlighting that such bans in other regions have only created a black market for the products. 

Last October, NB’s Health Minister Dorothy Shephard tabled a legislation that would create a registry of businesses selling vaping products, as part of the effort to prevent teen vaping.

The opposition said the bill will not actually address the problem, but Shephard replied that more restrictions are on the way. “This is only the first bill that’s being brought forward and this is about regulation and licensing, so there is more to come,” she said.

Moreover in 2020, local health critic Jean-Claude D’Amours had introduced a legislation that would ban flavoured e-liquids. He said that he wanted to see the flavours issue addressed by the local government. “If you look at many organizations, what they are looking for is really to eliminate the flavours.”
