DES Minister Chaiwut aims to study law Support to pull e-cigarettes into the system as a controlled product Looking at the long-term effects of reducing the dangers to smokers who are unable to quit smoking

Chaiwut Thanakmanusorn, Minister of Digital Economy and Society (DES), revealed today that representatives of the Tobacco Farmers Network of Thailand, representatives of the ECST group, electronic cigarette product supporters and admin of the Smoke Man Facebook page have come to meet to exchange ideas and discuss ways to push electronic cigarettes to be legally sold products, currently in the process of studying the law to bring electronic cigarettes into the system to be legal which is in the process of considering whether there are any congestion issues

Because it sees that if it can be made legal, it can reduce the danger to smokers. Because some people can’t quit smoking. Despite the ongoing campaign for people to quit smoking But now there are still nearly 10 million smokers for reasons supporting e-cigarettes being legal. Because e-cigarettes are a new technology, 67 countries around the world have already accepted e-cigarettes. Especially big countries such as the United States, China, even Malaysia. Because it is considered tobacco that is less harmful than real cigarettes. The e-cigarettes are less toxic, while in Thailand it is not yet accepted.

Let’s study the law first. In addition, we now know that tobacco factories and tobacco growers have lower incomes. Because people like to smoke imported. or smuggled cigarettes, so if domestically grown tobacco can be used to produce e-cigarettes will be able to solve problems for tobacco factories and farmers including exporting

However, data from the report on E-cigarettes: an evidence update released by the British Ministry of Health states that e-cigarette products are less harmful than conventional cigarettes. Affects health less than conventional cigarettes 95 percent and supports those who want to quit smoking. Use e-cigarettes because there is evidence of high rates of quitting among e-cigarette users.
