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]
