Vaping laws update: Feds guilty of overreach but provinces need to butt out too

Thanks to a report from the Canadian Constitution Foundation analyzing vaping legislation in Canada, we know that the federal government receives a failing grade particularly for treating vaping the same as tobacco smoking, but how do the provinces stack up?

Last week, I reported on the CCF's recommendations for problematic legislation that treats vaping like tobacco smoking by not allowing minors to access products, not allowing product testing, in-store consultation, and restricting advertising that outlines the health benefits of vaping vs. smoking cigarettes.

Bill S5 was introduced into the Senate in November of 2016 and CCF report author Derek From points out that the bill will limit the right of Canadians to access testimonials and life saving scientific information.
