Electronic Cigarettes On Sale On Internet

Hong Kong Digest – Updated on Mar 03, 2009 – Ming Pao Daily

Surge of tobacco duties by 50 per cent recently has led to the re-emergence of “electronic cigarettes” for sale on the internet. Claiming the product to be tax and tar – but not nicotine – free, a vendor said stocks of “electronic cigarettes” had been sold out since many smokers were turning to the product for financial reasons. He said the “smokeless” cigarettes contained no tobacco and could be used indoors without violating the law. The Department of Health declined to comment if internet advertising of “electronic cigarettes” was against the law.
