P.E.I. Vaping bill to increase age from 19 to 21, and ban e-liquid flavours.

PC MLA, Cory Deagle, passed the second reading of a private member’s P.E.I. The vaping bill would restrict where vaping products can be sold, would ban certain flavours, and would also raise the legal age to buy tobacco and e-cigarettes from 19 to 21.

Deagle stated: “These substances, you become addicted to nicotine. In some cases, there is four or five, 20 times the amount of nicotine and e-cigarette than there is in a regular cigarette.”

The second reading vote was unanimous, with all parties in support of passing the bill. There is also discussion about the possibility of adding taxes when this P.E.I. vaping bill is introduced in the spring.

The P.E.I. Vaping bill also addresses where vape products can be sold – indicating they could only be sold in a “tobacconist shop”.

If the P.E.I. vaping bill passes its third reading and becomes law, Prince Edward Island would have the highest age restriction of any province in the country. The bans on flavour products would not come into effect right away. These are to be done through regulations and cabinet, which Deagle said would likely take a full year.
