Canadian Lookah Glass Association: High nicotine content causes young people to use lookah glass more

by linbin on May 08, 2020
According to a recent article published by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) on May 7, 2020, the smoking threshold for Canadian teenagers has doubled in two years, and a new study shows Dr. David Hammond of the University of Waterloo (David Hammond) The results of a study conducted. Dr Hammond's research concluded that the lookah glass penetration rate of young people has doubled in the past two years, while in the UK, the penetration rate of e-cigarettes among young people has remained unchanged.

The Canadian Lookah Glass Grass Association (CVA) agrees with many of the points in this article, but believes that it is necessary to clarify some misunderstandings.

CVA has repeatedly called on the federal government to limit the concentration of nicotine to less than 20 milligrams per milliliter.

In Canada, the increase in the popularity of lookah glass among young people is directly related to the entry of large tobacco lookah glass brands, such as Juul and Vype. These brands sell lookah glass products with a nicotine concentration of 57 to 59 milligrams per milliliter, which makes them very addictive and easy to conceal the device.

In the United Kingdom, before the tobacco-owned advanced nicotine lookah glass brand entered the market, the European Union had established a nicotine restriction system, so the number of lookah glass among young people did not increase. This nicotine restriction means that companies like Juul and Vype will never be able to enter the UK market and buy high-nicotine products sold by companies such as vype.

Cunningham (Cunningham), a spokesman for the Canadian Cancer Society, said the federal government needs to enforce stricter advertising rules and taste restrictions. CVA has always supported the ban on national brand advertising. However, Cunningham ’s comments were misleading because Canada has banned steam product advertising outside of the adult environment. Since strict regulations have been formulated, there is no need to further regulate lookah glass advertising. It is necessary to ensure the consistent implementation of existing legislation. We agree with all health advocates, including the Canadian Cancer Society, that all legislation should prohibit advertising, restrict the sale of lookah glass products in a restricted environment for adults, and limit nicotine concentration to 20 mg per milliliter to address young people Intake problem.

We once again call on Mr. Cunningham and all other health advocates to work with the lookah glass industry so that we can work together to assist the government in formulating regulations to protect our youth and provide unprecedented opportunities for harm reduction to 5 million Canadian smokers.

The idea that flavored atomized products can help young people perform electronic atomization is a common misunderstanding. This conclusion has been verified by the US Center for Control and Prevention (CDC). According to the report of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the use of tobacco products and related factors by middle and high school students, only 22.3% of young people said they like lookah glass, because lookah glass has flavors such as mint, candy, fruit or chocolate.

The most common reason for using this trademark among young people is that I am curious about them.

A study conducted by the American Cancer Association concluded that despite the fact that Yule ’s all flavors are on store shelves except mint, mint and tobacco, young people have not given up looking at the lookah seahorse coil. Use mint or tobacco instead.

He said: "It turns out that restricting flavors does not effectively suppress the intake of adolescents, and a comprehensive ban on the consumption of flavors is extremely harmful to public health." However, both British Columbia and Ontario provide good examples of effective legislation on flavor distribution . By restricting the sale of experienced nicotine products in specialized adult glass bong king stores throughout Ontario, young people cannot enter the sales channel, but adult smokers can still get the products they need.

Many medical journals document the key role of spices in the transition of adult smokers from combustible tobacco. Most notably, the study published in the British Medical Journal (BMJ) concluded that if flavors were removed from atomized products, tobacco use by adults would increase by 8.3%. The New England Journal of Medicine also concluded through a controlled trial that lookah glass is twice as effective as any other smoking cessation method.

CVA and experts including Dr. Hammond agreed that nicotine concentration needs to be handled by the federal government, and advertising restrictions need to be continuously implemented to protect our young people.

Hammond said: "This phenomenon is most likely caused by Juul and its product types and nicotine concentration. In Canada, we found that children use Juul and Juul products to the same extent as the United States, so we think this may not be the United Kingdom. The main reason for seeing the same growth.
