May 12 - the Canadian province of nova scotia has approved new regulatory limits for water pipes online liquids and cigarettes, making it the first Canadian province to adopt a maximum nicotine concentration of 20 milligrams per milliliter, according to Canadian media reports.
The order, signed last week, amended the province's tobacco access law and went into effect on Sept. 1.
The move follows an amendment passed in March banning the use of fragrance-enhancing aerosols.
The Canadian cancer society says nova scotia has the highest levels of nicotine, the same as 28 countries in the European Union, which has been implementing standards for several years.
The provincial health department said in an email that the changes would increase efforts to protect teenagers from the harmful effects of nicotine by reducing their exposure to highly addictive nicotine.
2016-17 years, according to a survey of the nova scotia students in grades 7 to 12, 37% of people try smoking at least once a water pipes online, this is one of the highest rates of smoking in Canada.
The Canadian cancer society noted in a press release on Monday that a new study by researchers at the university of Waterloo found that young canadians aged 16 to 19 smoked between 2017 and 2019.
The study, published in the American journal of medical pediatrics, found that the smoking rate among young people rose 112 percent from 8.4 percent in 2017 to 17.8 percent in 2019.
Since nicotine-containing lookah glass rig became legal in May 2018, the number of lookah glass RIGS among young people has grown rapidly as tobacco companies entered the Canadian lookah glass rig market, according to the cancer society.
The report also notes that British Columbia announced in November that it would pass a law limiting nicotine to 20 milligrams per milliliter, but that the law has yet to be passed.
The provincial and federal governments have also said they are considering the measure.
The nova scotia government's move, which will make it harder for heavy smokers to quit, has done little to combat youth smoking, an unnamed industry group, lookah bongs, said on Monday.
As a result, smokers may continue to smoke, those who quit may smoke again, or smokers may try to obtain higher levels of nicotine and flavor products from illegal markets or from other provinces, lookah bongs industry and trade association said in a statement.
