Armenia bans the display of tobacco products including e-cigarettes

According to the Armenian Public Radio reports , Armenia’s retailers are no longer allowed to display tobacco products, including electronic cigarettes to customers.

A new tobacco law passed in February 2020 prohibits the public display of any tobacco products, including traditional cigarettes, e-cigarettes, and electronic nicotine delivery devices, in trade centers or public dining venues, and also prohibits the public display of empty boxes, squares, trademarks or symbols.

“Over time, the full implementation of these regulations will significantly reduce the country’s tobacco use, which will significantly improve the health of the population and the development of the country’s economy,” said Arsen Torosyan, then Minister of Health after the law was passed.

In March, Armenia will also ban smoking in cafes and restaurants.
