Tougher regulations on vaping come into effect in Saskatchewan on Saturday.

The Tobacco and Vapour Products Control Act was unanimously passed in the Saskatchewan legislature on Nov. 6.

“I’m excited to have this legislation in place,” Minister of Health Jim Reiter said in a media release. “This legislation will protect Saskatchewan youth from the harmful effects of vapour products. If you never smoked, then don’t vape.”

“Vapour products are highly addictive, trendy and extremely popular among teens and young adults,” added Jennifer May, the vice-president of community engagement with the Lung Association of Saskatchewan.
