According to Singapore’s Union Newspaper on the 27th, the World Health Organization recommended that governments should take measures to prohibit people from selling vapes to young people. The World Health Organization also recommends that people should be banned from vaping in public buildings until research shows that the smoke from e-cigarettes is harmless to the people around them.

People who vape on electronic cigarettes ‘more vulnerable to pneumonia’

Earlier, the US health authorities said that between 2011 and 2013, the number of teenagers trying to use e-cigarettes in the United States has doubled, and many people worry this will lead to a new generation of “addicts”.

According to the US Center for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 250,000 young people who have never smoked cigarettes used vapes in 2013. According to the Journal of Nicotine and Tobacco Research, this is twice the number of young people using e-cigarettes in 2011.

A survey of junior high school and high school students in the US Youth Tobacco Survey showed that more than 79,000 teenagers tried the e-cigarettes in 2011, and the number was more than 263,000 in 2013.

Bonner, deputy director of the US Center for Disease Control and Prevention, said: “The trend of more teenagers vaping is a warning to parents and health care workers.” She said: “especially for young people who have used e-cigarettes. For them, the odds of smoking traditional cigarettes are twice that of teenagers who haven’t tried the vapes.”

The study found that 44% of non-smoking teenagers who have tried e-cigarettes said they plan to try the conventional cigarettes in the second year. However, in the non-try grope of young who have never tried e-cigarettes, only 22% said they would try traditional cigarettes.

The vape is a device shaped like a conventional cigarette, which evaporates a solution containing a small amount of nicotine into an aerosol, which is inhaled by a vaper, like a conventional cigarette, but no smoke came out.

The first bottle of e-liquid was invented by this old man!

These e-cigarette devices are currently unregulated in the US market and allowed be sold to teenagers. Experts point out that fruit and candy-flavored e-liquid of vapes are more harmful to minors.

The Reasons Why Chinese and Americans Choose Vape are Quite Different

China is the world’s largest producer of e-cigarettes, no one; the United States is the world’s largest consumer of e-cigarettes, no one. But don’t think that the reasons why Chinese and Americans choose e-cigarettes are the same! According to the survey data, you can find the difference.why vape

The New Zealand Vape Advisory Board is Expected to Become the Largest Vape Alliance

The CECMOL team traveled to New Zealand to conduct strategic cooperation with various regions and established the New Zealand Vape Advisory Committee. At present, the areas that have been cooperating, including Christchurch, Wellington, Auckland and Hamilton, have signed agreements with them. Members of the committee include well-known local distributors, wholesalers, distributors, brands and world organizations.

Electronic Cigarette Technical Expert Advisory Group

The New Zealand Vape Advisory Board is expected to become the largest e-cigarette alliance in New Zealand. On the one hand, it will help raise the acceptance of vapes by New Zealanders and get rid of the dangers of traditional cigarettes. On the other hand, it will add a new force to the e-cigarette market and provide e-cigarette companies with market information and consumption habits of the e-cigarette industry in New Zealand, so that the channels for publicity and promotion will be more abundant and it will promote the development of the e-cigarette industry.

New Zealand is a highly developed capitalist country. The World Bank ranks New Zealand as one of the most convenient countries in the world, and its economy has successfully transformed from an agricultural-based to an internationally competitive industrialized free market economy.

As is known to all, in 1990, the New Zealand government implemented a “smoke-free bill” in order to achieve a “smoke-free” environment in 2025. E-cigarettes are included, which could not be legally promoted and sold in the market, and could only be placed in opaque counters.

On December 1-2, 2018, the Oceania International E-cigarette Exhibition will be held at the ASB Exhibition Square in Auckland, New Zealand. Not long ago, in June of this year, the New Zealand Government Ministry of Health officially announced on its official website that e-cigarettes are fully legal (including nicotine vape juice and heated non-combustible products) E-cigarettes can be sold legally in the New Zealand market, hoping to save many lives lost in smoking-related diseases and meet the government’s goal of a total ban on smoking by 2025. Driven by factors such as policy support and market positives, the future of New Zealand’s e-cigarettes market is inestimable.

The London Fire Department is Also Supporting the Vape

Do you know? 6.3% of fires and 26.1% of fires death are related to smoking. The result of this survey was obtained by the London Fire Department this year.

According to the New Zealand Herald’s website, Mark Hazleton, manager of the London Fire Safety Organization, said the London Fire Department believes that the best way to avoid a fire is to give up smoking.

According to data from the London Fire Department, eight people in London have died from smoking-related fires in the past year. In 2013/14, there were 5,978 smoking-related fires occurring in London, injuring 416 people and killing 76 people.

Fire injuries, disasters, and costs from cigarettes and cigarette lights: a global overview

This is why the London Fire Department has called for people to give up smoking.

Well, it’s not easy for a longtime smoker to give up smoking, but the London Fire Department recommended an option for the old smokers, that is the vape.

Vapes don’t show an open flame, so it is safer to place it on furniture, on the floor, on the bed and so on.

Dan Daly, an assistant commissioner of the London Fire Department, said that people often misunderstand that e-cigarettes also have the risk of causing fires. However, in fact, e-cigarettes are similar to ordinary electrical appliances. The common causes of fire are device damage or charger failure.

The London Fire Department also reminds people:

  1. Avoid charging the e-cigarette overnight;
  2. Don’t use damaged e-cigarettes;
  3. Make sure to keep away from medical oxygen when using e-cigarettes.

So in general, the attitude of the London Fire Department is still very clear, that is: smoking? Don’t smoke anymore; vape? Well, you can vape anything, as long as you don’t ignite.

At the same time, the London Fire Department also hopes that landlords recommend vapes to their smokers to help them change their smoking habits. It is a trivial matter to say, but in essence, this may be a life-saving event, with a long way to go!

Juul vape is in trouble of being prosecuted by a mother

The adverb is true, “The more famous people are, the more gossip there is”. Juul vape in the limelight is in trouble now. This “trouble” is not a case. According to the development trend, other big vape companies will encounter it, too, and the bigger the enterprise, the easier it is to get into trouble.

Wired reporter Nitasha Tiku reported three lawsuits against e-cigarettes, one of which was a teenage mother who filed Juul in New York, saying the company’s patented formula triggered the user’s nicotine addiction.

According to reports, her child has been experiencing Juuling since the age of 15, and even with the disciplinary action of the family and the school, it is difficult to stop now.
In a lawsuit filed of the Northern District Court of California, the San Francisco High Court, and the District Court of New York, a key ingredient in the Juul formula, salt nicotine, was specifically mentioned.

In a recent study, the researchers tested how the two flavors of Juul are superimposed on the other nine. In the May issue of the Journal of Independent Chemistry, one paper pointed out:

Compared to other brands, Juul’s e-liquid contains more nicotine and less harsh free radicals. In other words, this means that Juul has added a heavier dose of nicotine to a ‘delicious’ package.

A chart shows that all three products contain a salt nicotine component described in the Juul patent, which can produce much more nicotine in the blood than a Pall Mall cigarette.
Gideon St. Helen, a tobacco researcher at the University of California, San Francisco, warned that the level of nicotine after vaping would be much higher than what we saw on the chart.

We only see the details of the research that Juul told, but without independent research,these claims are hard to prove or refute.

It is reported that the latest three lawsuits were initiated against Juul Labs’ brand and marketing strategy. Two of these in California revolve around “created a group of new customers who are addicted, not ordinary smokers.”

However, product inventor Victoria Davis argued in an interview with The Verge in early July that Juul is only used by adult smokers who want to switch from combustible tobacco.
Then in an email statement today, she added that Juul Labs doesn’t endorse these lawsuits and will defend them actively.

Juul is taking over the US market and is about to enter London!

Following the $15 billion evaluation, Juul is expanding rapidly in the US and opened its first international office in London on Tuesday. After London, Juul plans to launch in three other countries.

Standing in the bustling hall of a San Francisco warehouse, the employees are sitting apart from each other and had a freshly prepared lunch in hand, and you wouldn’t know that you had just stepped into the headquarter of an e-cigarette company.

But Juul Labs is full without seam, from the basement to the attic without air conditioning, employees are everywhere. The company’s popular vape has a unique strong nicotine liquor and a unique smell of smoke. Revitalize the former flat electronic cigar industry.

After London, the company plans to open in three other countries – France, Singapore and Israel. This international initiative is comparable to the similar expansion in the United States, where the number of employees in the United States has tripled only in the past six months.

Currently, Juul’s headquarter is located at a five-story warehouse in the Douglaschi community of San Francisco (They planned to expand to a larger building across the street), with offices in 19 locations across the country. From big cities such as Boston and Chicago to smaller regions such as Des Moines, Iowa and Manchester, New Hampshire.

But as it grows, Juul faces several challenges, including local laws restricting sales of its products, concerns among teachers and parents about the evaporation of teenagers and surveys of their advertising practices.

The rise of “Juul

Juul users – some of them are current and former adult smokers; others are children and adolescents. As the most popular vape on the market, Juul even produced his own verb: “Juuling.”

However, although adult Juuling (rather than smoking) is largely considered to be good for public health because it is less dangerous than inhaling burning tobacco, juvenile Juuling is an unforeseen big problem – at least in the United States. More and more researchers are ringing the alarm about the addition of the vape pen


Scientists are particularly worried about younger users who may have never smoked but have picked up a yule of cigarettes. Because several well-designed studies have shown that young people who smoke are more likely to continue smoking traditional cigarettes.

In addition to the concerns of public health experts and researchers, Juul is also facing legal pressure. San Francisco banned the sale of spiced tobacco products last month. This includes the Juul flavor pack called JuulPods. In addition, the FDA is investigating whether Juul sells its products to teenagers.

How many e-liquid scandals can you remember in recent years?

Some time ago, Cui Yongyuan was angry with Feng Xiaogang in the microblogging, and Fan Bingbing was also involved. A series of problems are also exposed, such as sky-high entertainment pay, “real or fake contracts” and the tax evasion and taxation. It can be described as a scandal and a good show. How many scandals do you remember in the e-cigarette market these years? The author tests your memory and experience!

e-liquid smuggle

Toxic vape juice incident

On June 25, 2018, Hangzhou Customs seized a case of smuggling drugs through a postal parcel. Unlike the ordinary drug smuggling case, the drug in this case is marijuana oil, and the smoking method is the popular vape. This is the first time this year that Hangzhou Customs has seized marijuana e-liquid in the parcel channel.

Although marijuana is freely available in some countries abroad, it is a little common sense that marijuana is a harmful drug that is banned in China. It’s hard to believe that someone would dare to bring the e-cigarette oil containing marijuana into China from abroad. It is simply underestimating the level of Chinese customs.

After the case was exposed, there was much negative news about e-cigarettes on the Internet, which led to the wrong public opinion. Some spectators thought that all vape juice was poisonous. Seeing this, the author really wants to cry.

JOHOR BAHRU 16 December 2015. Ketua Polis Johor, Datuk Wan Ahmad Najmuddin Mohd (tengah) menunjukkan pelbagai cecair e-liquid vape yang dirampas dipercayai mengandungi racun sambil diperhatikan Ketua Jabatan Siasatan Jenayah (JSJ) Johor, Kamarul Zaman Mamat (kanan) dan Ketua Jabatan Siasatan Jenayah Narkotik, Asisten Komisioner Zulkifli Ali (kiri) ketika sidang media di Pusat Media Ibu Pejabat Polis Kontinjen Johor.

A Shanghai vape/ e-liquid smuggling team is arrested by the police

E-liquid smuggling incident

On the afternoon of August 21, 2017, Gongbei Customs held a press conference to announce the seizure of the largest series of e-cigarette smuggling cases in the country. It destroyed four smuggling gangs successfully and verified that the case involved smuggled goods of about 600 tons initially, with a case value of about ¥300 million.

Vape oil is an indispensable raw material in the process of using e-cigarettes, and it is also a high-frequency consumable. As the market for e-cigarettes expands year by year, the demand for vape juice is increasing. Behind this case of vape and e-liquid smuggling, it also reflects the huge market demand for vape oil, especially the imported vape juice. Because of this, there are always some people who are aware of breaking the law and like to take risks and try to make a fortune, but they can’t escape from the police, and they will be subject to severe legal sanctions.

Arrested for Vaping?

The commodity classification and article classification of traditional tobacco, e-cigarettes and heating non-burning tobacco

With the increase of global tobacco control, the harm of smoking to the body has been paid more and more attention. The focus of smokers isn’t limited to the experience, but there are more requirements, which has given birth to a series of different alternatives to traditional tobacco. Today, I’m going to talk about the more common types of “tobacco” products – the commodity classification and article classification of traditional tobacco, e-cigarettes and heating non-burning tobacco.

Traditional tobacco

Tobacco is native to Central and South America. It was found in archaeology that tobacco existed in the centuries before the BC, and even in a dozen centuries. Tobacco was introduced to China in the middle and late 16th century. Traditional tobaccos that are commonly found on the market today include cigarettes, cigars, pipe tobacco, and the like.


Most of the cigarette ingredients are not only tobacco. Manufacturers often add a large quantity of different additives to cigarettes in order to control the composition and quality of the tobacco, preserve the corrosion, and change the sensation that the smoke can produce to the smoker when the ignition is on. Although the chemicals in cigarettes are mainly dry tobacco, they are chemically treated with a lot of added ingredients. The smoke that ignites cigarettes contains about 4,000 chemicals.

Cigarettes are classified as items in the tariff and should be included in the tariff code column 2402.2000.


Cigars are pure natural tobacco products made from the original tobacco leaves that have been air-dried, fermented, and aged. It is a type of cigarette, a cigarette made from dried and fermented tobacco, which ignites one end when sucking, and then sucks the smoke generated by the mouth at the other end. The main producers of cigar tobacco include Brazil, Cameroon, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Honduras, Indonesia, Mexico, Nicaragua and the United States. Cigars produced in Cuba are generally considered to be the best in cigars.

Cigars are listed in the tax code and should be included in the tariff code column 2402.1000.

Pipe and pipe wire

When tobacco appeared, the original method of smoking was to use a pipe. It can be said that the pipe is a tool for discovering tobacco. With tobacco, the pipe was born. Pipe has a long history. It has been ignored for thousands of years as evidence of human inventing smoking. A pipe is a smoking prop, popular in the United States and Europe. It is stuffed with cut tobacco and spices to ignite smoking.

The pipe wire refers to the tobacco used for the pipe, which should be classified into the tariff code column 2403.1900. And the pipe should be classified as the tariff code column 9610.10010.

E-cigarette (steam smoke)

Since the invention of Chinese pharmacist Han Li in 2003, e-cigarettes were listed in China in 2004 and introduced to overseas markets in 2005. Nowadays, there are many types of e-cigarettes. The common ones are simulated smoke-type e-cigarettes (the same size as real cigarettes, but also made into the shape of a pipe, pick up and draw, have disposable atomizers, and also add vape oil). Pole-type e-cigarette (the shape is a slender pole, the taste is comfortable and soft, is the first choice for many people who quit smoking), the pressure-type large smoke (such box type is mostly, the smoke is large, the pressure is adjustable. It is a favorite of big smoke lovers and steam-players), mechanical e-cigarette (this class should belong to the enthusiast’s equipment, there is no finished atomizing core, you need DIY yourself, although complex, but the taste is good, the smoke is big, belongs to the category of fever), small electronic Smoke (small size, low power, easy to carry).

Simply speaking, e-cigarette is a low-pressure microelectronic atomization device that atomizes tobacco, fruit and other flavors into a mist by heating for smokers, so this is called the origin of steam smoke.


Regardless of the shape, they are all electrical devices. The principle is to use a heating resistor wire to atomize the smoke liquid to produce a cigarette-like gas for simulating the state of smoking.

The goods are in accordance with the description of the tariff heading 85.43 and its sub-items. According to the general rules 1 and 6, the classification should be classified into the tariff code column 8543.7999.

Electronic cartridge

The inside of the vape cartridge is usually equipped with “smoke oil” for e-cigarettes. It should be noted that there is neither tobacco nor tar in the “smoke oil”, and the ingredients are generally saturated with a solution composed of propylene glycol, glycerin, nicotine and perfume. The cartridge is used in the vape, and the e-cigarette heats the solution in the vaporized core to generate a vapor mist for the smoker to inhale.

The “vape oil” cartridge is the main feature of smoking “vape juice”, therefore, according to the general rules of classification one, three (two) and six, should be classified into 3824.9999.

What are the classifications of E-liquid?

If it is an empty vape juice bottle that can be repeatedly injected, we generally consider its composition and function. Nowadays, the main device of most small e-cigarettes is the atomization device, so it should be classified into the tariff code 8543.9090 according to the special parts of the e-cigarette.

Heating without burning tobacco

As the name suggests, the “low temperature cigarette” designed with the idea of “heating does not burn”, that is, heating cigarettes (special cigarettes) to a certain temperature (the average smoking temperature is around 300) is enough to make the tobacco leaves smell. Compared with the traditional cigarettes smoking 700°, the temperature is obviously much lower, so “heating without burning” is often called “low temperature and no burning”. The special cigarettes that are different from ordinary cigarettes are heated to about 300° without causing so many harmful substances when traditional cigarettes are burned. In comparison, harmful substances are produced 90% less than traditional cigarettes during the inhalation of non-combustible cigarettes, but the experience of smoking is very similar to traditional cigarettes.

The most representative product is the current super-fire IQOS (short for “I Quit Original Smoking”, “I give up traditional smoke”), invented by Philip Morris “Philip Morris”, has been launched Third generations of 2.4 Plus version. Such devices are sometimes also referred to as e-cigarettes, but they are quite different from the general meaning of electronic steam smoke mentioned above.

Host (baker)

The roaster, as the main body of the cigarette lighter, consists of two parts, a charger and a heater. The main components include a plastic case, a metal heater (mainly containing gold, platinum component), an electrode metal piece, a ceramic temperature control piece as well as intelligent temperature control chip, LED lights. By inserting a special cigarette into the heating port of the heater, the heating chip heats the shredded tobacco to about 350 degrees, evaporating the water vapor in the tobacco leaf to achieve the effect of the user inhaling nicotine and tar.

According to the general rules 1 to 6, the goods should be classified into the tariff code column 8543.7099.

Vape cartridge (special cigarette)

The IQS-specific “smoke cartridge” is also different from the steam-smoke cartridge. It consists of a reconstituted tobacco section, a hollow cylindrical acetate filter, a “belt” filter, and a cellulose acetate filter with a paper tube at the end, which are integrated into a paper package. The tobacco segment is made of dry tobacco with a certain proportion of glycerol, propylene glycol, nicotine and other components added after comminution. Inhaled using the IQOS baking and heating system, no burning and smoldering, no open flame.

The commodity complies with the relevant description of cigarettes under Heading 24.02 of the Tax Note, and shall be included in the Tariff Code 2402.2000 according to General Rules 1 to 6.

Classification of “cigarette” items in the mailing channel

All of the above are those that refer to the classification of goods in the trade of goods, but the classification of the items in the postal channels is different, and should be determined in accordance with the “Regulations on the Imported Goods of the People’s Republic of China”.

Cigarettes are classified as 03010000;

cigars are classified as 03020000;

shredded tobacco is classified as 03030000;

Steam cigarettes are classified as 27 million;

IQOS host roaster is classified as 2,700,000;
