The impact of policy changes, that are designed to protect young people, on smokers and vapers
Time: 11:35 - 11:50
Date: Friday 9th December, 2022
It’s well-established that vaping helps some people quit smoking, but concerns over the unknown long-term health effects and rise in youth disposable vaping, has seen greater demand for tighter restrictions. But policy decisions have consequences and not all of them are intended. In this session, Dr Jasmine Khouja will present a recent study that asked smokers and vapers how they would feel about flavours being banned in the UK. Study participants also made many unprompted suggestions for alternative policies with common themes that should be explored further.
