  5. There are 'rumours' in the Thai newspaper Khaosod.. that vaping in Thailand could become legal, as they are looking at methods of applying tax to ecigarettes.. 'Translated from Google.. 😂 Taxes on electric cigarettes after the embassy 7-8 countries call tourists arrested. E-cigarette tax - The Department of Excise will pay taxes on electric cigarettes lawfully after the Embassy of 7-8 countries call tourists to Thailand. He was arrested for bringing electric cigarettes. E-cigarette tax - Mr. Pachara Anantasilp, Director-General of the Excise Department, To be imported right. In principle, cigarette taxes keep the current maximum rate. The amount of electricity is 1.20 baht and the value is 40%. Personal electric cigarette is about 30% of the price. The Excise Department has studied the basics. Currently, there are three types of electric cigarettes: 1. Electric cigarettes that use tobacco like cigar cigarettes. Can not add I have limited time. 2. Water-filled cigarette There are cigarettes and electric cigarettes and cigarettes. 3. Electric cigarettes that use tobacco cigarettes. Use innovative heat. Have a cigarette And electric cigarettes "The first and third types of electric cigarettes are easy to make because they are clear. But for the second type of water. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) must help determine what ingredients are mixed with water. To make taxation correct. " Mr. Pachhor said that the electric cigarette is a product that is consumed worldwide legally. Electric cigarette tax In addition to making consumers not wrong.

The Ministry of Health does not want to consume electric cigarettes. This causes problems for both consumers in the country. The illegal smuggler bought it. The impact on tourists with electric cigarettes come in. This is a big problem every day, "he said.
  6. DR HILARY JONES Go vape! Many people still believe that vaping is just as bad as smoking ordinary cigarettes – but it isn’t In the UK, 1.7million vapers have quit smoking completely and more than 900,000 have given up both smoking and e-cigarettes COMMENT By Dr Hilary Jones 22nd October 2018, 1:05 am Updated: 22nd October 2018, 1:05 am MANY people still believe that vaping is just as bad for you as smoking ordinary cigarettes. But it isn’t. 7 Vaping is far less harmful than smoking normal cigarettes They also think that because you are inhaling nicotine in the vapour of e-cigarettesyou are just as likely to get lung cancer as you would smoking tobacco. You are not. There are also worries that vaping will act as a gateway for young people, who have never smoked, to progress to traditional cigarettes and ruin their health as a result. They are fears, too, that it will “normalise” smoking again just when public health campaigns are managing to help more people permanently quit smoking than ever before. 7 You are not as likely to get lung cancer from vaping as you are from smoking tobacco All the evidence, however, says that this just is not the case. Don’t get me wrong, as a doctor I’d prefer it if nobody smoked OR vaped. Years ago, as medical students, who should have known better, many of us smoked a little — often to disguise the awful, lingering smell of the cadavers we had to dissect in the anatomy room. But we soon stopped when we saw with our own eyes what the long-term effects of smoking did to the human body. Vaping facts 2006: Year e-cigs went on sale in UK 3m vapers in Britain 9m smokers in Britain 1.7m have used vaping to quit cigs 900,000 have quit both cigs AND vapes £3,796: Year’s cost of smoking 20 cigs a day £271: Year’s cost of equivalent vaping habit In the Pathology Museum we would see a nice healthy pink lung sat pickled in a jar of formaldehyde right next to another lung, black with tar and soot from smoking, at the centre of which was a hard, pearly white grapefruit-sized knuckle of cancer with tentacles reaching out into other adjacent organs including the liver and brain. Smoking kills. Later, as qualified doctors on the wards, we saw the horrendous consequences of it. People who could not breathe without oxygen tanks, people suffering heart attacks or strokes, or undergoing amputations or voicebox removal for throat cancer. As a doctor I’d prefer it if nobody smoked or vaped, but e-cigs are far less harmful We saw — and still see — the damage done to unborn babies of expectant mothers, who remain addicted, and the increased risk of chest and ear infections from passive smoking, and meningitis and leukaemia in infants, who live in smoking households. The medical evidence is irrefutable. Smoking tobacco is bad news. But vaping is different. You heat up a solution called an e-liquid, which typically contains nicotine, a propellant called propylene glycol and/or vegetable glycerin and flavourings. Some vapes may contain a fraction of some of the harmful chemicals found in cigarette smoke, but they are present at much lower levels, if detectable at all What you don’t do is burn tobacco or produce tar or carbon monoxide — two of the most harmful elements of all in tobacco smoke. Sure, some vapes may contain a fraction of some of the harmful chemicals found in cigarette smoke, but they are present at much lower levels, if detectable at all. So are they safe? According to all the international medically-reviewed evidence from such expert organisations as Public Health England, the Royal Colleges of Physicians and General Practitioners, the British Medical Association and Cancer Research UK, e-cigarettes are at least 95 per cent safer than traditional cigarettes. The American Cancer Society and the National Academies of Science, Engineering and Medicine both agree with them. GETTY - CONTRIBUTOR 7 Nicotine is addictive but does not give you cancer Yes, the nicotine, of course, is addictive. But so what? So is caffeine, even eating. Contrary to popular belief, nicotine does not give you cancer and it is relatively harmless generally. Apparently only 17 per cent of the population know this. Happily, there is no evidence of harm to other people from vaping and, if used instead of nicotine replacement gum or patches, may even help expectant mums remain smoke-free in the long term. 7 There is no evidence of harm to other people from vaping As a doctor I don’t want any young person or non-nicotine user to try vaping. Ever. Period. As it happens, regular use of e-cigs among “never” smokers is still very rare at just 0.5 per cent. But look at what they’ve done to help tobacco smokers quit. In the UK, 1.7million vapers have quit smoking completely and more than 900,000 have given up both smoking and vaping. GETTY - CONTRIBUTOR 7 Rgular use of e-cigs among 'never' smokers is still very rare at just 0.5 per cent In fact, this is Britain’s most popular method of quitting with two-thirds stopping successfully when used alongside professional stop-smoking NHS support. In this country we have some of the strictest regulations in the world. E-cigs are subject to minimum standards of quality and safety as well as clear packaging and labelling requirements. All ingredients have to be notified, advertising is prohibited in media such as television, newspapers and magazines, it is illegal to sell them to under 18s and to adults intending to pass them on to under 18s. that is responsible regulation whichever way you look at it. This month’s national Stoptober campaign recommends using e- cigarettes as a stop-smoking aid and if it helps some of the 9million smokers in the UK kick the habit for good then perhaps doctors like me will see fewer people in our surgeries struggling to breath or devastated by a cancer diagnosis. And if I see any ex-smoking patients of mine having a quiet vape outside my surgery door, I shall give them a heartfelt pat on the back and cherish the fact that there will be one less nasty fag end polluting the street. fer than regular tobacco? Too new to know long-term effects By Abbas Kanani, Chemist Click pharmacist NICOTINE contained in e-liquids is a highly addictive substance that raises blood pressure and spikes your adrenalin, increasing the chances of having a heart attack. This is particularly worrying as we see a number of individuals who are constantly vaping, especially as it is seen as more convenient and cost-effective than lighting up a cigarette, as well as being considered more socially acceptable to vape indoors. While vaping appears to be safer than cigarettes, the truth is that it hasn’t been around long enough for us to know the potential damage it can cause to our health. The long-term effects of the chemicals contained in e-liquids haven’t been examined. However, I have looked into various research that has been carried out on certain e-liquids that were found to contain substances that can cause damage to the immune system and are linked to other health conditions such as cancer. Vaping isn’t great for your oral health either. It’s common for vaping to cause a dry mouth, and I’ve met a number of individuals who have developed oral thrush, most likely caused by vaping. Although nicotine does not have a colour, it becomes yellow when combined with oxygen which could lead to tooth discolouration. As nicotine is a vasocon-strictor, it limits blood flow in oral tissue, which can cause gum disease and bad breath. As time goes on, I am reading new research which proves vaping has a negative effect on health.

    Do you do Soapy Massage in Pattaya?

    Highly recommended... On my first visit to Pattaya, a good few years ago,, enjoyed it so much, went 4 times in 14 days... She cleaned me in parts, i never knew existed... If you try it, you wont be disappointed....
  13. Pretty simple really.. Cigarettes generate more tax income into the Govt coffers, ecigs are not taxable...yet... I will use the UK as an example.. In 2016, income tax from sale of tobacco was £16 billion.. Cost of UK annual cancer treatment was approx £5 billion =£11 billion profit. to UK Govt. There is also, the potential threat from ecigarette sales to the profits of the Drug companies who supply Cancer drugs, it remains to be seen IF the long term effects of vaping are healthy... Personally, I feel the sale of ecigs in Thailand, is not a threat to the Thai cigarette industry, as normal tobacco is cheaper than Ecigs in Thailand.. In other Western countries, due to the high tax... Ecigs are cheaper than tobacco.. For mine... ANY form of smoking cessation, should be encouraged, not prohibited... It boils down to the individual's life priority, their health or their money -IMO...
