Should e-cigarettes be available on NHS Scotland prescription?
More than a third of those asked in a new survey believe they should.
GoSmokeFree.co.uk questioned 1,200 respondents to gauge their views toward vaping as a means of helping smokers cut down their tobacco use and subsequently, reduce the overall harm to society.
A significant 35 per cent thought vaping products should be made available on prescription, considering their benefits in terms of helping cigarette smokers kick the habit.
Given the risks associated with smoking, not only for the individual but those around them as well, 38 per cent of those surveyed thought the government should make cigarettes illegal.
Additionally, 45 per cent – so nearly half – said they don’t think anti-smoking laws are tough enough, which could be why so many would support the illegalisation of cigarettes.
