Certain vapes may be banned in Scotland to "protect the health of children and young people”.
The Scottish Greens are set to propose plans to ban sweet-tasting vapes in the new year, with campaigners warning it is a “ticking time bomb” for young people's health.
The party’s health spokesperson, Gillian Mackay, said she is also prepared to pursue legislation to ensure the health of those most likely to be impacted is preserved.
She said there is growing concern that the number of under-age people being attracted by “deliberately sweet-toothed tactics” used to market the products is spiralling.
All politicians should heed the warnings of campaigners such as Ash Scotland, Mackay said, who warned of a ticking time bomb unless action is taken.
