    Ex Advocate-General to European Court says proposed ban on ecigs unreasonable

    Sir Francis Jacob QC, President of the European Law Institute and former Advocate-General to the European Court of Justice describes the proposed ban on e-cigs as “an unreasonable measure which is liable to be annulled as being contrary to the principle of proportionality and/or the principle of non-discrimination."

    At the request of ECITA (EU) Ltd, Sir Francis Jacob has provided his expert Opinion on the Commission’s proposals for a revised Tobacco Products Directive, as they pertain to electronic cigarettes. There are one or two surprises, but it comes as no surprise whatsoever to the growing community of vapers, who have already made the switch to electronic cigarettes, often entirely replacing their smoking habit, that Sir Francis is of the opinion that the proposed change to the regulation of these revolutionary products:

    “represents a very extreme and intrusive form of regulation.”

    Hope yet for common sense to win through! Excellent news, cause if this does get knocked on the head, we here can 'breath/vape' easier for the mean time.
