The seller of e-cigarettes will appeal and continue to promote its products.
No question for the seller daunted. Well aware that the decision was rendered in the context of a legal vacuum around on the regulation of the electronic cigarette, it will appeal decided to succeed.
Counsel and advocates vapote is also quite optimistic, believing that the judge, in its first decision, exceeded the legal framework, which is not yet defined, regarding the sale of this product. Probably it was too early to give due to one or other of the parties.
It will be necessary now that the judicial determination in the light of new European legislation published there only a few days, and, failing to give proper legal status to electronic cigarette gives some terms of sale and its use.
Or rather, does not change anything about his selling points: the countries of the European Union reserving its distribution to pharmacies may continue so, and those offering the outside pharmacies, as is the case of France, will also.
Nothing in the text does not address the issue of competition, nothing seems to help decide in tobacconists / sellers of e-cigarettes conflicts. Nothing either for advertising or authorization or not in public places, two points that could indicate whether the Government and Europe favor an assimilation of e-cigarette tobacco or not. These issues will not be resolved before the law on public health, planned for in 2014.
In other words, the twists may be many in the coming months.
