E-cigarettes banned in public spaces, transportation means and ads

Electronic cigarettes fall under the same restrictions as cigarette smoking, the Council of State plenary ruled on Monday, including a ban on their use in public spaces, transportation and in advertisements.

Law 4410/2016 and related ministerial decisions on conventional smoking also affect e-cigarettes, Greece’s highest administrative court said in its decision 704/2018, rejecting a petition by the Association of Greek e-cigarette Businesses to cancel a series of decisions on its restricted use.
The court added that the association, which claimed it was financially harmed, may file a lawsuit for compensation by Greek courts for damages resulting from the application of law 4419.  [amna.gr]

PS one more law banning smoking whereas, every body keeps smoking in the majority of  Greece’s restaurants and bars and cafeterias.
