UK’s Leading Electronic Cigarette Manufacturer Welcomes Ban on Sales to under 18s in Wales

February 5, 2014

BLACKBURN, England, February 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ –

Totally Wicked Ltd [http://www.totallywicked-eliquid.co.uk ], one of the country’s
leading electronic cigarette manufacturers has today welcomed yesterday’s decision by
members of the Welsh Assembly to outlaw the sale of electronic cigarettes to those under
the age of 18 throughout Wales.

Fraser Cropper, Managing Director of Totally Wicked said:

“We welcome the news that the Welsh Assembly wishes to ban the sale of electronic
cigarettes to those under the age of 18. As a company we have voluntarily been enforcing
such an age restriction since we were formed six years ago. This is clear from our
packaging, signage in our shops, on our website, and our advertising material. Electronic
cigarettes are an adult product that should be offered for sale to existing and former
smokers only.

This ban will now apply in Wales and England, so we expect policy makers in Scotland
and Northern Ireland to follow the lead taken by the Department of Health and the Welsh
Assembly and introduce their own restrictions on sales to those under the age of 18.

As a business, we hope, now that electronic cigarettes will be seen in law as the
adult product they have always been, that a more measured debate can now take place about
how they should be regulated. We look forward to working with policy makers in Wales and
elsewhere on the implementation of this ban and to ensure that it is properly policed and
rigorously enforced.”
