Electronic cigarettesElectronic cigarettes are banned here but that has not stopped more smokers from trying to get hold of them and even using them boldly in public.
In the first five months of the year, the Health Sciences Authority (HSA) seized 2,428 units of the smokeless product. This is far more than the 1,464 it detected in the whole of last year. In 2009, only 10 were confiscated.
Local users are able to buy e-cigarettes from overseas websites or when travelling in countries that permit their sale.
