Jamaica Bans Importation of Electronic Cigarettes
According to a report by RJR News, smokers of electronic cigarettes popularly known as e-cigarettes have been dealt a blow.
The Ministry of Health has advised that effective immediately the Jamaica Customs Agency should not allow clearance of electronic cigarettes with liquid cartridges or replacements.
An e-cigarette is a battery-powered vaporiser which simulates tobacco smoking by producing an aerosol that resembles smoke.
It generally uses a heating element known as an atomizer, that vaporises a liquid solution known as e-liquid.
The Health Ministry says e-cigarettes have not been fully investigated and the nicotine content is not yet known.
It added that smokers are not aware of the health risks they may be exposed to or the benefits associated with the use of e-cigarettes.
Jamaica Customs says it will enforce the Health Ministry directive until further notice.
