We’ve been contacted
by several members recently about the surge in customers using e-cigarettes in
their establishments. Uptake of the e-cigarettes, which use battery-powered
cartridges to produce a nicotine-laced vapour, has rocketed in the past two
years, but there is debate about their potential risks and benefits. Because
they are new, there's not a lot of scientific evidence on their safety. Some
experts fear they could be a gateway to tobacco smoking, while others say they
have potential to help millions of smokers kick the habit.
It has been
a wild weather week around the country and we hope that you have all
come through the ordeal OK if you are in an affected region.
