E-cigarettes, e-hookah banned in State

Friday, 19 July 2019 | PNS | BHUBANESWAR

The State Government has now banned e-cigarettes and other electronic nicotine delivery systems (ENDS) like e-Sheesha, e-hookah and heat-not-burn tobacco device.

The Government issued a notification to this effect on Wednesday.

As per the 1940 Drugs and Cosmetics Act, the Government banned manufacturing, sale, import and advertisement of all ENDS products that have potential risks to public health.

The Government also directed officials concerned to conduct raids forthwith on the places of operation of these products.

The decision followed reports of rampant consumption of e-cigarettes and hookah containing nicotine in clubs and bars at several places across the State, including Bhubaneswar.

This apart, advertisements on e-cigarettes also came to the notice of the Health Department.

 Some months ago, a meeting between the Commissionerate police and the Health Department had been held where the ban on e-cigarettes and other ENDS products was proposed.
