E-cigarette seizures increasing

| June 17, 2013

If consumption levels of banned products reflect seizures of those products, then consumption of electronic cigarettes in Singapore is increasing despite the ban there, according to a story by Poon Chian Hui for the Straits Times.

In the first five months of the year, Singapore’s Health Sciences Authority seized 2,428 electronic cigarettes, whereas, during the whole of 2012, 1,464 electronic cigarettes were seized, and, in 2009, the figure was only 10.

Local users are said to be able to buy electronic cigarettes from websites, when travelling in countries that permit their sale, or from local underground suppliers.
