The United States has cracked down on glass dab rigs and Britain is accepting it as an anti-smoking

While the United States is rushing to quit smoking, Britain has accepted glass dab rigs as a powerful tool to help smokers quit smoking.
The Royal College of Physicians explicitly requires doctors to promote glass dab rigs "as widely as possible" to people who try to quit smoking. Public health advice in England is that smoking is only a small part of the risk of smoking.
U.S. public health officials have taken a more cautious attitude and supervision of glass dab rigs has been slow. However, the warning caused alarm, as the number of teenagers' water pipes for sale soared, prompting the federal government and some states to take measures to ban fruit and mint flavors that appeal to young people.
Today, there are hundreds of vapers with mysterious lung diseases in the United States. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention of the United States advises people not to use glass dab rigs, especially those using THC, a compound that causes high incidence of marijuana.
Dr. John Britten, director of the British tobacco and alcohol research center at Nottingham university, said the U.S. response was "totally insane". "The reality of smoking is that if you tell people to stop smoking, they will return to tobacco and tobacco death."
The regulations on glass dab rigs vary from country to country, thus forming a series of policies. Glass dab rigs are completely banned in more than 30 countries; India stopped selling this month. Many European countries (including Austria, Belgium, Germany and Italy) classify online headshop as tobacco products and strictly control them. According to more relaxed regulations, most of them are sold as consumer goods in Britain and France.
Glass dab rigs has been largely unregulated since arriving in the united states in 2007. It was not until three years ago that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration had the power to do so and was still working out the details. At the same time, the black market version is booming.
Appearing in Congress last week, the acting commissioner of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration was forced to explain the agency's position. Several members suggested that glass dab rigs should be completely removed from the market.
Dr. Ned Sharpless said: "We think these products are unsafe and we think they are harmful." "We think that no one should really use combustible tobacco except those who use them instead of tobacco leaves."
In Britain, a review by the CDC-like agency Public Health England concluded that atomization was 95% less dangerous than smoking. Ash, Britain's leading anti-tobacco charity, even called on glass dab rigs to obtain a drug license and offer it free to smokers who try to quit smoking through the UK government-funded health system.
