Sweden Introduces Bill to Prohibit Flavored Vapes

Date:

The Swedish government has formally proposed a ban on non-tobacco vape flavors, including menthol.

The proposed law covers nicotine and non-nicotine e-liquid, and also captures regulatory authority over all synthetic nicotine products.

If passed, sales of flavored vape products will be illegal beginning Jan. 1, 2023.

The bill, titled “Stricter rules for new nicotine products,” was introduced last week by the Ministry of Social Affairs, and is currently being reviewed by the Council on Legislation (Lagrådet), which assesses the legal validity of proposed bills before legislators consider them.

The bill will be voted on by the Riksdag (parliament) as early as March 22, according to Stefan Mathisson of the Swedish vape website Vejpkollen. That doesn’t leave much time for Swedish vapers to contact their elected representatives to oppose the flavor ban.
