EU Commission Consider an E-Cigarette Tax

If the EU Commission has their way, e-cigarettes could soon be taxed in the same way that normal cigarettes are, making vaping much more expensive. E-cigarettes give people an alternative way of consuming nicotine by inhaling a vaporised liquid, rather than burning tobacco. An e-cigarette tax similar to the taxes on tobacco would push people away from vaping and prevent many from trying a safer alternative. The government has been putting a high tax on tobacco for decades in an attempt to lower the rates of smoking. At the moment,... Read More
