A recent report on the topic suggests the push for e-cigarettes is coming from tobacco companies, who are eager to lure another demographic into their sales market. On this reasoning, vaping is presented as being a “gateway” activity. It supposedly leads or prompts consumers towards conventional smoking products.
But Dr Attila Danko says this is not the case.
“If it was true that e-cigarettes were a massive gateway to children becoming addicted, I wouldn’t be on the side of legalising it,” says Danko.
