According to the Khmer Times, authorities in Sihanoukville will take stern action against e-cigarette users.
According to Westport Police Chief Zun Nalin, the authorities will take action against new types of cigarettes or e-cigarettes after parents and guardians are concerned about the impact of "vaping" on the health of young people and make requests.
Health experts point out that new cigarettes or e-cigarettes are becoming more and more popular among young people.
According to some studies, the use of e-cigarettes will increase the risk of respiratory diseases by about 30%, the smoking of traditional tobacco will increase by about 156%, and the combined use of the two will increase the risk by 230%.
It should be mentioned that in 2021 Cambodia has enacted a ban on the use of e-cigarettes at the request of the World Health Organization and anti-smoking tobacco control groups linked to Bloomberg.
In March this year, Cambodia’s National Anti-Narcotics Agency (NACD) has urged the country’s municipal, provincial authorities and all relevant agencies to strictly enforce the ban on the import, trafficking and use of e-cigarettes and heated tobacco products (HTP) in Cambodia.
