How old do you need to be to vape?
In 21st century, no one considers vaping as an act of crime. However, there are limitations that apply to a certain age group. In this blog, you will get to know all about the right age to vape.
It is true that vaping is considered a healthier, safer and much trendier alternative to smoking cigarettes all over the world; but that doesn’t mean it is recommended to teenagers and children. Different countries and states have different age criteria when it comes to vaping. For example, in USA, some states allow you to vape at 18 while others don’t, till you are 21. In Pakistan, selling of nicotine based products is not legal to minors and people under 18; that includes cigarettes and vapes as well. Pakistan Medical and Dental council also puts its weight around this case deeming it ‘unsatisfactory’. But then again, if you are a former smoker, vaping is obviously a way to go considering you are older than 18.
What happens when you get caught? Well, there is no check and balance when it comes to implementation of laws in Pakistan. Getting caught for possessing illegal items is like getting a parking ticket. And since most people are vaping around in the country among elites, it has started to become a norm. Hence, it’s not considered much unethical as compared to smoking cigarettes. But to be on the safe side, it is recommended not to vape if you are under 18; you can get in trouble for something as benign as vaping and may face repercussions.
