Netherlands: A Case Study on Plain Packaging for E-Cigarettes”

report has been added to’s

In 2016, as the tobacco industry faced a wave of legislation to remove
overt product branding, the author asked: Could e-cigarettes be the next
battleground for plain packaging? Today, that possibility has moved
closer, with legal moves being discussed at a high level in some
nations, while one -Israel, a small country with influence beyond
its size-
has taken the crucial step.

In this special report, the author takes as a case study the situation
in the Netherlands, where plain packaging is among a number of
suggestions for the regulation of e-cigarettes that have been placed
firmly on the political agenda.
