  Over the past two years, king volcano bong have become a hot topic among young consumers.Although the tobacco industry has a small market share, its production and sales are growing rapidly and there are a large number of start-ups.However, since e-cigarettes are not a type of tobacco monopoly under the "tobacco monopoly law", there is currently no systematic regulation, and the call for e-cigarette legislation has a long history.

  In the past, e-cigarette companies have promoted them as "healthy and harmless" brands as an alternative to traditional tobacco, claiming to help stop smoking.However, a growing body of evidence, including the world health organization, suggests that this is bad for health.The director of planning of the health commission also stated that the suspended particulates produced by e-cigarettes contained toxic and hazardous substances and the additives were dangerous to health.

  As for claims about the impact of e-cigarette companies quitting smoking, there is also a lack of evidence.On the contrary, many surveys show that many non-smokers are formally exposed to traditional tobacco through e-cigarettes.Based on the possibility of harm, some local regulations related to tobacco control, such as those in shenzhen and hangzhou, have taken the lead in introducing e-cigarettes into the category of banning smoking in public places.

  It is worth mentioning that this year's CCTV 315 gala focused exclusively on e-cigarettes, and the industry chaos was exposed.Since then, some e-commerce platforms have also blocked searches for e-cigarettes, but the industry has since recovered, with brands trying to capture the market before national regulations are finalised.Therefore, under the premise of health risks, the industry is in a state of no product standards, no quality supervision, and no safety evaluation. Therefore, the legislation of lookah glass bongs really needs to be accelerated.

  "As far as e-cigarette legislation is concerned, the first issue to be addressed is the issue of industry standards," he said.For example, the fuzzy labeling of nicotine concentration, the presence of toxic and harmful additives, battery explosion, smoke penetration, and high temperature scald are the results of the lack of industry standards.It is precisely because of the lack of regulatory standards that companies can claim to be harmless and false to young people.

  The emergence of e-cigarettes has indeed broken the monopoly of traditional tobacco companies in the tobacco industry. For example, we can see that many e-cigarette brands are launched by young start-ups.But like some passionate, hard-to-burn e-cigarettes, e-cigarette brands use real tobacco, so e-cigarette brands have to work with tobacco companies.

  Meanwhile, Chinese tobacco companies from hubei, sichuan and yunnan provinces have also entered the e-cigarette market and launched their own e-cigarette brands.In addition, there are many traditional tobacco companies working with lookah glass bong review brands.In general, traditional tobacco companies still have a huge say in this game, and their impact on e-cigarette legislation and future enforcement cannot be ignored.

  The framework convention on tobacco control came into force in China in 2006, but after 13 years of controlling tobacco use, the smoking rate among people aged 15 and over is still 26.6 percent, much higher than the global average of 21 percent.Tobacco companies are to blame for the difficulty in controlling cigarettes.One notable figure is that cigarette sales declined after the tobacco excise tax was increased in 2015, and stopped falling and rising in 2017.Overall, tobacco companies have sold more and more cigarettes over the past 13 years, and their total tax profits in 2018 were a staggering 1. 7%.RMB 1,556 trillion.

  The tobacco industry is a pillar industry in many places and a major taxpayer.Therefore, the influence of tobacco companies on tobacco control is reflected on many levels.

  So far, for example, we can only see several signs of pain and itching, such as "smoking is harmful to health", "smoking is harmful to health" and "smoking is harmful to health".For example, many cities have fully smoke-free public places, with a transition period of one to three years, allowing smoking rooms, which can also be interpreted as a compromise with the tobacco industry.In addition, the maintenance of low prices, low tax rates, low barriers to purchase, is also the embodiment of the voice of the tobacco industry.

  For tobacco companies, e-cigarettes are a small part of the current market, but they have arrived early.Given the use of e-cigarettes as an alternative to cigarettes, the emerging industry as a powerful interest group will use its industry clout to intervene.Then, at the next legislative level, we should be more vigilant about being kidnapped by interest groups.

  E-cigarettes must be regulated, but on a public health basis, not as an "upgrade" product for tobacco companies.
