On March 13, VapingPost reported that last month, New Zealand's ministry of health introduced a ban on glass pipes and bongs advertising. Justice minister DavidParker said a blanket ban on glass pipes and bongs was not justified because they were a safer alternative to smoking.
Introducing the glass pipes and bongs grass amendment, New Zealand's ministry of health acknowledged that glass pipes and bongs and smokeless tobacco products are less harmful to consumption than smoking, so the law would exempt them from certain provisions but apply to tobacco products.
"The bill allows all retailers to display their products in stores, in stark contrast to the requirement that tobacco products be invisible to the public," the Commerce Department said.However, the amendment bans all forms of glass pipes and bongs advertising.
In response, the local glass pipes and bongs association, VTANZ, said it was unreasonable not to disseminate information about the relative health of glass pipes and bongs.The blanket advertising ban is short-term.We must be able to communicate the benefits of our products to adult smokers in a limited way, so as to translate them into products that reduce the harm by 95%.
Attorney general David Parker agreed.One politician's report said the ban on advertising or promotion Of glass pipes and bongs was a "right to free speech" and not in line with the "Bill Of Rights".
"While some restrictions on advertising may be justified, a blanket ban is not an 'appropriate response' given the lack of evidence of harm," he added.On the contrary, atomization is much safer than smoking.
VTANZ spokesman JonathanDevery wants congress to heed parker's advice.A blanket ban on advertising would be counterproductive.We must be able to communicate the benefits of our glass pipes and bongs products to adult smokers in a limited way, so as to translate them into products that reduce the harm by 95%.
