    UK Health Minister is "anxious" about or devices

    What a twat !

    Health Minister Mark Drakeford said he fears that electronic cigarettes are "re-normalising" smoking and believes there is a case for tighter laws.

    He told BBC Wales' Sunday Politics that he was very anxious about the devices.

    But he did not dismiss claims that e-cigarettes may help people quit smoking.

    Notice the BBC chose not to accept comments for this article. I wonder why.

    "If you lived in New Zealand for example you can only buy an e-cigarette at a pharmacy because they regard them entirely as to be governed as a health issue and as a medicine.
    is this true? i don't recall reading anything to this effect :/

    He may have meant Nicotine?, but no worries buying any hardware in NZ.

    I see the ANTZ are still banging the "gateway" drum, despite no evidence that this is occurring at all, in fact the evidence points to this not being an issue at all, yet at the same time saying they need evidence about e-cigs in order to legislate. What a crock!!
