Rest of the world needs to catch up
Friend who I travel with:
1: Had a load of vape cartomisers seized at Singapore, where we were then pointed at a poster indicating:
"Under the Tobacco (Control of Advertisements and Sale) Act, it is an offence to import, distribute, sell or offer for sale any of the following tobacco products: -
ix) Any solution or substance, of which tobacco or nicotine is a constituent, that is intended to be used with an electronic nicotine delivery system or a vaporiser;
Those guilty of the offence are liable to a fine not fine not exceeding $10,000 or to imprisonment for a term not exceeding 6 months or to both"
....so I told her in strong terms to just STFU and stop arguing when she started having a go at the SIN Customs agents!!
2: Needed to get her Doc to write a note saying the vape stick and cartomsiers were "prescribed" to take any vaping equipment into Hong Kong.
And another interesting fact about HKG is that the tobacco allowance is only 19 cigarettes, or 1 cigar or 25 grams of loose baccy..... so be prepared to say goodbye to that carton of 200 (and yes, they do look for and check Caucasians at HKG as we could tell we were selected about 50 metres away from the Customs post)
