The health ministry has proposed a ban on new-generation tobacco products, citing the negative impacts they can have on the youth as also the additional management costs they can impose.


At a conference held Wednesday on solutions to prevent the negative impacts of tobacco, Tran Thi Trang, deputy head of the legislation department under the Ministry of Health, said the current Law on Tobacco Harm Prevention does not have provisions to deal with e-cigarettes and heated tobacco products, the Vietnam News Agency reported.


Allowing the distribution of these products on a trial basis has revealed the potential negative impacts including management costs, which means the state having to expend human and management resources to resolve social issues stemming from the use and abuse of the new tobacco products, especially their impacts on the youth's behaviors and lifestyles, she said.
