    Ban on E-cigarettes / Chinese warning to Hong Kong media over interference with mainland politics

    On Friday's Backchat, the ban on e-cigarettes. The CE has changed a plan to restrict their sale to minors, and the latest proposal will prohibit the import, sales and promotion of e-cigarettes and other new tobacco products. The plan has triggered reactions from both sides. Some doctors say that it will help prevent more people from smoking - especially the younger generation. Advocates of e-cigarettes claim it is a step backward and contrary to international trends. Will the ban be effective in encouraging smokers to quit  and promote public health? Or instead drive smokers to buy traditional tobacco products?

    Let us know your thoughts. You can leave a message on our Facebook page, Backchat on RTHK Radio 3, email us at backchat@rthk.hk. Or give us a call on 23388266.

    After 9:20, the China propaganda chief's warning to Hong Kong media over interference with mainland politics.
