A ban on smoking electronic cigarettes in public places where regular cigarettes are banned will go into effect in Israel on Friday, Arutz Sheva reported.
The bill, which passed its final vote on December 31, 2018 states that all laws regarding tobacco products will be expanded to include all products used for smoking, including electronic cigarettes and various mixtures used to smoke but which do not necessarily contain tobacco.
The law also bans advertisements of smoking products on internet sites and smartphones, as well as on billboards, store signs, and in stores, and prohibits the names of tobacco products from being used for other products. The law excludes specialty alcohol and tobacco stores, as well as printed newspapers.
Handing out samples will also be banned, whether the samples are free or in exchange for payment or another product, as will events intended to promote smoking products
