Indian state of Bihar bans nicotine-containing e-cigs and e-hookahs

Bihar has become the latest Indian state to place a blanket ban on all forms of e-cigarettes and related items, joining at least five others at last count.

The northeastern state, one of the country’s poorest, said the legal prohibition is chiefly aimed at preventing tobacco products reaching the hands of teenagers. As far as can be determined, the Bihar prohibition applies only to nicotine-containing e-cigarettes while also specifically banning nicotine-containing e-hookahs.

According to the decree issued by the Bihar administration, the manufacture, sales, distribution, display, and advertisement of any kind of electronic nicotine delivery system (ENDS) are banned.
