“Itoay parang magsisilbing ngipin doon sa gustong ipatupad din ng ating mahal naPangulo, ang House 5561 which isthe Tobacco and Vaping Regulation Act parawala nang mag-question na ‘yungdating executive order, hindi kasali doonang vaping,” Alonte said in a Dobol B sa News TV interview on Sunday. Alonte added a law regulating vaping ismore powerful than an executive order, but the President can still make anissuance pending the passage of a national policy. Her proposal, House Bill 5561, seeks toamend to the Tobacco Regulation Act, she said. “Ngayon,naging open, ini-import ‘yan, dumarating dito sa atin, ‘yung iba bumibili abroad kasi akala nila ‘yung alternative sa mga gustong mag-quit na ng smoking. Akala nila hindi harmful,” she said. Alonte also urged the Department ofHealth and Food and Drug Administration to conduct information disseminationcampaigns on the dangers of using vaping products, which she said is popularamong teenagers supposedly because they do not contain nicotine. (GMA News/PN) But Alonte explained vaping was not afad yet at the time the executive order was issued. MANILA – Biñan City Rep. Marlyn Alontebelieves that the measure she filed to regulate vaping will provide teeth tothe order of President Rodrigo Duterte to ban the use of vaping products inpublic. “Yunnaman ang ating thrust sa bill na ito. Hindi naman totally tatanggalin,hindi totally iba-ban. Pero iba-ban natin ang pag-import atipagbabawal natin ang vaping in public,” she said. Duterte has earlier issued ExecutiveOrder 26 which prohibits cigarette use in public places, but it does not makemention of vaping.
