Over 70 various e-cigarette and vapor related products have been seized in Bangkok, Thailand after raiding the home of a 35-year-old man. Vaping products are illegal for sale in Thailand. The country banned the products in 2014.
Police found 70 electronic cigarettes, several containers of e-liquid and other related products. Police say the alleged dealer sold the e-cigarettes and e-liquid through Facebook and used a private delivery service to ship the products to customers.
Police tracked down the dealer’s address and searched his home, finding e-cigarettes and related products valued at around baht300,000 ($9,839), according to a report in The Thaiger.
The accused was detained and charged with violating consumer protection regulations. Police say he admitted to selling the products.
Earlier this year, a consumer advocacy group asked the government of Thailand to consider science as basis for ending e-cigarette ban.
