UK Menthol Cigarette Ban Coming May 2020

Why not switch before your are pushed to an alternative.

These will be a thing of the past come May 2020 in the UK

Some of you may not be aware as it hasn’t been widely published but in May this year 2020 Menthol cigarettes and flavoured rolling tobacco will be banned in the UK.

Deborah Arnott of Action on Smoking and Health said: ‘Research shows that menthol in cigarettes makes it easier for children to try smoking and to go on to become addicted smokers.

What can you do?

There are many different menthols in the vaping world of varying strengths of nicotine strength , coolness and flavour.

The Dot Pro is a simple draw activated device with disposable pods. 1 Pod is the equivelant of around 20 cigarettes for around £3 a pod. An easy leak free solution that can be popped in a pocket or bag and used as and when it is needed discretely.

I’ve tried vaping and its not for me.

Before you jump to that conclusion its worth noting that vaping has come along way in a very short amount of time.

KoKo from Uwell is the size of a zippo lighter. It uses refillable disposable pods that are easy, clean and leak free.

Your vape device can be as big or as small as you like. It can be as easy to use as you like. It doesn’t have to be a cloud machine it can be subtle and most definitely can give you what you will be missing, save you money and help you be a healthier person

But Vaping is just as bad as smoking it has been all over the news.

Several months ago American big wigs were and continue to use vaping as a way of scaring the country into continuing to smoke. The cigarette manufacturers are losing money and quickly but they still need to make their annual MSA payments to the state which amounts to millions of dollars. Its called the Master Settlement Agreement it was a way the tobacco companies pay in advance to continue to sell death on the promise they do not target the youth.

To cut a long story short several youth ended up in hospital having vaped illegal black market created THC (the psychoactive ingredient in cannabis) products that had been delivered in vitamin E acetate a carrier that can cause problems when inhaled into the lung.

Jacob George, a professor of cardiovascular medicine and therapeutics at the University of Dundee, said: “The lung injury seen in the US is not related to the nicotine replacement e-cigarette devices sold in UK high streets”

The opportunity was seen and taken as a way of taking electronic cigarettes down.

Reports soon followed from the CDC (Centres for Disease Control & Prevention) that vaping itself was not to blame but the blackmarket products themselves and a few were arrested connected with the supply.

Dr Anne Schuchat, the CDC’s principal deputy director, says this sharp spike strongly points to a single culprit for most of these cases: vitamin E acetate, an additive found in illicit cannabis-containing vapes.
