LET US BE SCIENTIFIC IN THE VAPING DEBATE, NOT IDEOLOGICAL

There is a need to structure this debate in a way that speaks to the right parts. Preventing youth vaping and smoking remains a key and noble objective. It would be highly unfortunate and regrettable, though that, in attempting to reach this objective, we relinquish efforts to assist the over 8 million smokers in South Africa to quit smoking. It would be morally repugnant to penalise smokers in furtherance of our vendetta against the tobacco industry.

We also ask that the voices of ENDS users who have successfully moved away from smoking with the aid of these products be taken seriously.
