Olivier Théraulaz, President of the Swiss association Helvetic Vape, is coming back on the recent decision of the Swiss Council of States to recommit the draft Tobacco Products Control Act (LPTab).

Last April 2016 at the Federal Council, a draft project was introduced that assimilated e-cigarettes and snus to other tobacco products. A project that the Committee on Social Security and Public Health Of the States Council (CSSS-E) opposed, reporting the misunderstanding of some members to see applied to “electronic cigarettes containing nicotine the same regulations (…) as for conventional cigarettes, yet much more harmful.”
