Compared with the United States' stricter tobacco control policy, the British policy is too loose.


In 2018, the United Kingdom began to allow the sale of e-cigarettes in hospitals and provide patients with e-cigarette lounges to encourage smokers to switch from traditional tobacco to e-cigarettes and eventually quit smoking.


According to a recent public health report (PHE) published in England, at least 1.3 million people have completely quit cigarettes because of e-cigarettes as British officials continue to support the reduction of tobacco harm through e-cigarettes.


In the United Kingdom, e-cigarettes exist as medicines, which predestined that it will take a completely different path from other countries from the beginning, but it is not only due to the perspective of those in power that they have such a clear understanding. The complex social system and policy positioning behind this also deserve our careful consideration.
