Scottish Health Minister Humza Yousaf said ministers would consider a possible ban on single-use vaping devices in Scotland.
Asked about the new campaign against disposable e-cigarettes, he said the panel would examine the evidence for the devices.
In October, the Irish government launched a consultation on a ban on wasting disposable vaping products, citing concerns about littering.
Greens MSP Gillian Mackay presented the Daily Record's campaign against disposable vaping in Parliament on Thursday.
Health Minister Humza Yousaf said ministers would consider a possible ban on single-use vaping devices in Scotland.
She said: "This is not just a public health issue, it is an environmental issue, as covered by the campaign in today's Daily Record.
"Will the cabinet secretary support a ban on disposable e-cigarettes?"
Mr Yousaf said Public Health Scotland was researching the impact of vaping and had an action plan in place this autumn.
While the World Health Organization says they are undoubtedly harmful to health, there is limited evidence about their long-term effects, he said.
He congratulated activist Laura Young for highlighting the issue, saying she had been colloquially described as a vaper.
Mr Yousaf said: "Gillian Mackay is absolutely right that we are exploring and will be exploring a public health issue.
"We will ask stakeholders with relevant expertise to examine the evidence and assess what action should be taken by the Scottish Government and other partners. This will include considering a potential ban."
