Senator Win Gatchalian will file a bill regulating the sale of e-cigarettes, vapes and other electronic nicotine and non-nicotine delivery systems in the Philippines as the country reported its first electronic cigarette or vaping-associated lung injury (EVALI) case.
Senator Win Gatchalian has urged the Movie and Television Review and Classification Board (MTRCB) to exercise prudence in classifying movies and contents being streamed on different platforms, including online streaming providers like Netflix and Amazon Prime.
Senator Win Gatchalian said a law may be needed to further regulate the sale of e-cigarettes, vapes, and other electronic nicotine and non-nicotine delivery systems in the Philippines.
Senator Win Gatchalian renewed his call for the immediate passage of a bill increasing the tobacco tax to ₱70, in a bid to not only curb cigarette consumption among Filipinos but also raise funds for the government’s universal health care program.
