The Italian Ministry of Health will ban smoking e-cigarettes outdoors in bars, restaurants, parks and bus stops. The corresponding decree should be adopted by the end of the year.
As the newspaper Il Messaggero writes, after the entry into force of the ban, violators will be fined. In addition, law enforcement will raid public places.
The Italian authorities intend, among other things, to limit advertising for electronic cigarettes. It’s going to be likened to traditional tobacco advertising, which is now almost banned. Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Infrastructure and Transport Matteo Salvini has already spoken out against the Health Ministry’s plans. He wrote on his social media page that e-cigarettes help people quit regular ones.
