France is set to ban disposable e-cigarettes – known locally as “puffs” – because of the danger they pose to the environment and public health.
Prime Minister Élisabeth Borne said the measure was part of a new anti-smoking plan being drawn up by the government. It should be in force by the end of the year, campaigners said.
Several other countries in Europe, including Germany, Belgium and Ireland, have announced similar bans. The UK is also said to be considering one.
