Palau makes 'import, advertising, sale, and use of e-cigarettes' illegal

Palau has outlawed e-cigarettes or "vaping" after President Surangel Whipps Jr signed a law for "a total ban on the import, advertising, sale, and use of e-cigarettes" on March 29.

The law - RPPL 11-27 - has expanded the Tobacco Control Act to include e-cigarettes and will come into effect 60 days after being enacted.
