On October 12, U.S. Representative Raja Krishnamoorthi announced a piece of legislation earlier this week that would limit nicotine content in glass bong cigarette products.
According to a statement by Krishnamoorthi's office, the proposed bill limits nicotine content to more than 20 milligrams per milliliter in order to make the product "significantly reduce its appeal and attraction to young people."
In the European Union, local diamond glass product directives have already enacted such regulations, and experts believe that the measure will have a negative effect on public health.
"As a concerned parent, I am committed to preventing a new generation of nicotine addicts," said Krishnamurti, who has been investigating youth smoking in Congress. "Limiting the concentration of nicotine in glass bong water pipes is essential to end the popularity of glass bong water pipes among young people by reducing the addiction of these products, their attractiveness to young people and their harm to public health. After all, although flavor attracts children, nicotine can still make children net and drag them to the boat, becoming a lifelong habit and addiction of glass bong cigarettes. "
At the same time, throughout the EU, the local diamond glass product directive (TPD) has already formulated such regulations, and public health experts believe that this measure is not conducive to public health.
In fact, British health experts are concerned because the rapid growth in the number of people switching from smoking to smoking has greatly decreased. Although public health in Britain has publicly approved safer alternatives as smoking cessation tools, the number of smokers who switch each year has dropped from 800,000 to 100,000.
"The rapid growth in the use of glass bong water pipes has ended, and more than one-third of smokers have never tried e-cigarettes, saying the main reason is to worry about the safety and addiction of volcano bong . Smokers realize that smoking is far more harmful than smoking, which is very important. " ASH (Smoking and Health Action) said in a 2017 press release.
