Since the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) first authorized the legal sale of e-cigarettes in the United States in October 2021, more and more countries have begun to recognize e-cigarettes, adjust regulatory policies, and promote the legalization and standardization of e-cigarettes. E-cigarettes in their country.
The most obvious move is the Southeast Asian country Malaysia. E-cigarettes have long been considered a drug in Malaysia because of their nicotine content. But in October, when Malaysia's finance minister, Tengku Zafrul Aziz, presented the 2022 budget, he said the government planned to impose an excise tax on e-cigarettes. This is seen as an important signal for Malaysia to lift the ban on e-cigarettes.
Countries such as Thailand and Egypt are also changing their attitudes towards e-cigarettes. Egypt has repealed the ban on e-cigarettes that had been in place since 2015. Likewise, Thai politician and Minister of Digital Economy and Society Chaiwut Thanakamanusorn said he was exploring ways to legalize vaping.
What makes these countries uncharacteristically? Let's first take a look at the United States, which 'gives the green light for e-cigarettes for the first time in history'.
The FDA passed the PMTA (Premarket Tobacco Application) review of three e-cigarette products for the first time because 'there are data to prove that these three products are more likely to be used by smokers to reduce the risk of tobacco harm.' That is to say, after layers of testing, the FDA believes that these three e-cigarette products can help smokers reduce harm.
E-cigarettes have also been shown to help with smoking cessation. The latest 'Report on the Scientific Basis for Tobacco Product Regulation: The Eighth Report of the World Health Organization Research Group' released on the official website of the World Health Organization (WHO) pointed out that in some cases, electronic cigarettes can help some smokers quit smoking and have a negative effect on the public. Health has a positive impact. The constantly updated authoritative research conclusions have become the scientific basis for the country to adjust the regulatory policy of e-cigarettes.
In addition, there are voices from the public. According to media reports, a national poll in Malaysia showed that 58% of respondents agreed that e-cigarettes have the effect of reducing harm, and 51% of respondents said that among all smoking cessation methods, using e-cigarettes to assist smoking cessation is the most effective. Practical and most effective. Safety. As of now, there are more than 1 million e-cigarette users in Malaysia.
In fact, countries around the world see the great potential of e-cigarettes in reducing smoking rates. Two countries, the United Kingdom and New Zealand, have also adopted e-cigarettes as official smoking cessation tools.
New Zealand, located in Oceania, released an e-cigarette regulatory plan as early as 2018 to support smokers switching to e-cigarettes. Recently, in order to popularize e-cigarettes to the public, the New Zealand Health Promotion Agency also opened a channel dedicated to promoting the truth about e-cigarettes, clearly stating that 'e-cigarettes are much less harmful than smoking' and 'e-cigarettes can help some people quit smoking.'
Data show that in the United Kingdom, which was the first to recognize the effect of e-cigarettes as an aid to smoking cessation, the national smoking rate dropped from 21% in 2011 to 15% in 2020. On October 29, the UK tasted the sweetness, and 'incorporating electronic cigarettes into medical insurance' once again set an example. The NHS says it will use e-cigarettes as a prescription medicine to help smokers quit. This means that the UK will become the first country in the world to obtain a license for e-cigarette medical products.
With the emergence of more authoritative scientific research conclusions about e-cigarettes, the global regulatory situation of e-cigarettes is becoming more and more clear. 'E-cigarettes should not be regulated in the same way as cigarettes. E-cigarettes can be seen as an opportunity to control tobacco and ultimately achieve a 'new era' of a smoke-free future,' reads the latest report from the WHO Tobacco Expert Group.
