Europe’s “Beating Cancer Plan” leaves vapers a little peeved.
The European Commission ended up launching its “Beating Cancer Plan”, despite the overwhelming majority opposing the plan due to the havoc it will cause on the vaping community.
The plan includes to increase the taxation of ‘novel tobacco products’, including e-cigarettes, as well as imposing a wide-spanning ban of flavours. These measures have rightly upset and angered many vapers throughout the EU.
Supporters of the plan state it’s an ambitious step toward beating cancer, tobacco harm reduction groups have slated it, dubbing it a ‘failure to smokers.’
By treating the risks of smoking and vaping as equal, policymakers are preventing a large percentage of people from switching to a safer and less harmful alternative.
The European Tobacco Harm Reduction Advocates (ETHRA), who represent millions of vapers across Europe - have written to MEP’s to express their upset and anger at the proposed changes.
