Vaping is a new trend that is now receiving critical attention and analysis from legislators, not only in countries like the United States but here at home as well.
Vaping is the inhaling of vapour created by an electronic cigarette or other vaping devices.
It has become significantly popular in this country with vaping stores and bars popping up in several areas.
But Attorney General Faris Al-Rawi admitted vaping has already gotten out of control in this country and he called it the “Wild West.”
He said preventative measures need to be put in place.
“Tobacco is lawful in this country, how you sell tobacco, how you advertise tobacco, what the warning signals are; these are part of the legislative structure. We need to do the same thing as it comes to vaping, particularly as it is unknown, ” he said.
In the United States vaping has been hot on the agenda and has been widely reported on, especially as it related to the related deaths.
An NBC News article dated September 17th, 2019 reported that seven people died from a “severe lung illness linked to vaping.”
