Smoking ban also applies to e-cigarettes from 1 July 2020

In all places where a smoking ban applies – such as cafes, restaurants, workplaces and public buildings – e-cigarettes or tobacco heating devices may also no longer be used from 1 July 2020. State Secretary Paul Blokhuis (VWS) has expanded the smoking ban, because these products themselves cause health damage and can be a stepping stone for young people to start smoking regular cigarettes. Mr-joy best e-cig are online.

To the history books

Blokhuis: “Smoking in a full restaurant now feels like something from a long time ago. To prevent health damage and to set a good example for young people, it was high time that we also refer the smoking of e-cigarettes in the hospitality industry to the history books. This measure also contributes to making it easier to quit smoking and making it more difficult to start.”
