E-cigarettes help smokers quit, but ministry says ban them anyway

| October 16, 2012

Costa Rica’s Ministry of Health is considering banning the import of electronic cigarettes, according to a story in The Costa Rica News.

The ministry says it believes the ban is necessary because the US Food and Drug Administration has said that electronic cigarettes contain toxic substances.

Since a smoking ban was passed inCosta Rica, many companies are said to have promoted the use of the electronic cigarette as a way to help people to stop smoking. But the ministry was quoted as saying that while electronic cigarettes were helpful in aiding quitting, they could be harmful.
