Electronic cigarette, victory for consumers : what has established the European Parliament
The European Parliament was the scene of the protest made by some 300 people (consumers and producers’ representatives ) , where he was scheduled the vote in plenary on the text of the new EU directive on tobacco which restricted the sale of the electronic cigarette only to pharmacies.
Some of the slogans of the demonstration were ” Do not touch my e- cigarette” and ” Buy liquids in pharmacy , no thank you .”
The decision to limit the pharmacies sale of electronic cigarettes would certainly create problems for smaller companies .
The decision of the European Parliament
The new European directives on tobacco have established that electronic cigarettes can not be sold in pharmacies and are prohibited to minors.

The comments dell’ANAFE
President ANAFE : ” A good result for us who were engaged in this sense , and ‘ a big step forward : it finally sees the product as a genuine alternative to tobacco .”
And the market in crisis?
“In the beginning there ‘was an uncontrolled boom with an exponential growth of the outlets , and ‘ normal that the market share were to normalize sooner or later .”
Who wants to scuttle the electronic smoking ?
” The pharmaceutical lobbyists : they want to hinder in any way because it takes away the smoke electronic market for smoking cessation products such as patches , inhalers , capsules , etc., the tobacco multinationals are investing instead in electronic smoking ‘cause they realize that’ the new border. “
