Your voice is needed now more than ever to stand up against a potential flavour ban that could severely impact the choices of vapers in Norway. The Norwegian government is considering a full ban on vaping flavours, which could limit the ability to enjoy the variety of options that have helped countless smokers switch to a safer alternative.
Your participation in the upcoming consultation is crucial to ensure our rights and choices are protected. Let’s dive into why this matters and how you can make a difference. The consultation will be open till 1st of October!
Why Your Participation Matters:
The vaping community has made tremendous progress in reducing smoking rates by offering smokers a less harmful alternative. Flavours play a significant role in this success, making the transition more enjoyable and effective for many. A flavour ban could undermine these efforts and push vapers back to smoking, reversing the positive trend we’ve seen in public health. Your input can help decision-makers understand the importance of preserving a harm reduction tool that has already saved lives.
