E-Cigarette Nicotine Exemption A Concern For Parents – Rosli Baharin

A Bandar Baru Bangi parent supports NGOs’ judicial review bid against the delisting of liquid nicotine, saying the government’s rationale of revenue collection isn’t wise. “The Health Minister must uphold her ‘duty of care’ to protect the public’s health.”

An article on the judicial review application against the exemption of liquid nicotine from the Poisons Act is crucial for the attention of all concerned Malaysian parents. 

I am worried about the trend of any young non-smoker being attracted to vaping because it is flavoured. 

Indeed, vaping acts as a gateway drug due to the addictive nature of nicotine! 

The government must reconsider and review its previous exemption granted to nicotine used in e-cigarettes. 

From the rakyat‘s perspective, protection of the public’s health far outweighs politicisation as vote-catching of the young and the middle generations of the population. 

The rationale by the government on the benefit of revenue collection is also not wise and sensible. 

The Health Minister must uphold her “duty of care” to protect the public’s health. 

Go for the bid for the judicial review! 

Rosli Baharin is “all along an anxious” parent who lives in Bandar Baru Bangi, Selangor.
