CRN urges PRRD to veto VNP Bill

Child Rights Network (CRN) pushing for children’s rights legislation in the Philippines, called on President Rodrigo Duterte on Tuesday, 07 June 2022, to veto the consolidated House Bill 9007 and Senate bill 2239 or the Vaporized Nicotine Products Bill once the ratified bill reaches Malacanang.

CRN reiterated its position that the vape bill essentially relaxes regulations on the sale, distribution, use, and promotion of electronic nicotine delivery systems (ENDS) or e-cigarettes, and vaporized nicotine products (VNPs), giving the tobacco industry a free pass to reach even children during a forum at the Kamuning Bakery Cafe in Quezon City.
