French shop banned from selling e-cigarettes

5 posts in this topic

A French tobacconist won a landmark court case on Monday to stop a nearby shop selling e-cigarettes after a court ruled it was unfair competition as the devices amounted to tobacco products.

The ruling has infuriated e-cigarette vendors after months of heated debate in France and Europe over the legal definition of the devices and how freely they should be sold.

I'd call it a nicotine product more than a tobacco one.

I agree, but there I hear the UK government want it reclassified as a tobacco product so they can tax it which I think is ridiculous as driving up the price through tax will put people off from quitting smoking.

I actually dislike the electric ones more than tobacco because they're odorless and you can't tell if you're breathing any fumes in or not. I know just being near an area with cigarette smoke makes my lungs usually feel all stuffy so I know to steer clear.

Which means they keep the income from the tax on cigarettes.

Makes perfect sense. If you were a Bond villain or a member of parliament.
