Nicotine vape liquid worth RM1.4mil seized

KUALA LUMPUR: E-cigarette refills suspected to contain nicotine worth about RM1.4mil have been confiscated following complaints about students smoking them, says the Health Ministry.

In a statement yesterday, Health director-general Datuk Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah (pic) said the ministry’s Pharmacy Enforcement Division and the Public Health Development Division inspected 78 premises in an operation nationwide on Tuesday. E-cigarette liquid typically consists of 95% propylene glycol and glycerin, with the balance being flavouring, additives and nicotine, though there are also blends without propylene glycol, flavouring and nicotine.
