GEORGE TOWN: The Penang state government has no plan to ban e-cigarettes, but is looking for the best approach to monitor its use, says State Agriculture and Agro-based Industry, Rural Development and Health Committee chairman Dr Afif Bahardin.

“We have held dialogues with vape traders over the past two weeks, but no decision on the matter has been made. The vape traders can continue with their businesses,” he told reporters after a dialogue with vape traders here Thursday night.

The dialogue was attended by more than 30 vape traders, including Penang Vape Traders (PPVPP) chairman Muhammad Hafidz Adnan and Malaysian E-Vapouriser and Tobacco Alternative Association (MEVTA) president Allan Foo.

On Dec 4 last year, the Penang Fatwa Council ruled e-cigarettes, as well as sisha, as “haram”. – Bernama
