According to the Star Newspaper, most Malaysians want e-cigs and vape (ECV) banned.
If you are reading this, you probably disagree with it (and so do we). We strongly against the idea of e-cigs and vape ban in Malaysia.
Before that, let's take a quick dive on the survey that had been recently completed.
Two-thirds of the National E-cigarette Survey (NECS) 2016 respondents want ECV banned while over 90% want them prohibited in places where smoking is banned.
Over 4,000 respondents participated in the survey.
Designed to represent Malaysian adults aged 18 and above, the report was published by the Institute for Public Health in collaboration with the International Islamic University Malaysia (IIUM).
““Some 75% of the respondents felt that ECV does not help smokers quit or maintain abstinence upon quitting, and 85% disagreed that ECV is more effective than medication for quitting smoking,” he told Sunday Star.”

Our response is this — "We get it. When it comes to e-cig and vape, there are e-juices that come with nicotine and zero nicotine."
Most vapers prefer ejuices with nicotine because they are excellent substitute for cigarettes.
Now, take a moment to think about it.
Vaping with nicotine infused ejuices are not going to make you any healthier and therefore, it will not stop you from smoking(or vaping in this matter).
Of course, for those who vape with zero nicotine level, that's still acceptable.
The Solution: Be Wary Of What You Vape (And Where You Vape)
We at Pengintip.com promote heavily on responsible vaping. This means that you should only vape in places that are permitted (here's a list of places you cannot vape in Malaysia).
We also encourages you NOT to vape in front of children (unless they are above 18 years of age).
If you want vape to be legal in Malaysia, we (vapers) need to play our parts in being responsible and go towards safe vaping.
Oh yes, do you know that using quality vaping accessories are equally important?
