Vaping only allowed for above 25 years old, Cayetano says
What should be the legal vaping age in the country?
For Senator Pia Cayetano, smoking e-cigarettes should only be allowed for adults with the age of 25 years and above.
“I support the call of DOH Secretary Duque to set the legal age for smoking e-cigarettes at 25 yrs. This is important to ensure that e-cigarettes are not easily accessible to the youth and young people,” she wrote on Facebook.
“In fact, during the hearing on sin taxes by the Ways and Means Committee, which I chair, I manifested that there are studies showing that the brain continues to develop until the person is 25 years old,” she said.
