I am a French vaper. In France, we were informed of the Italian situation regarding the taxation of e-liquids. We are deeply saddened by this tragic situation that is happening in Italy.
Since I do not speak Italian, I did not understand everything about the ins and outs of the tax. Is it a tax which only concern the eliquides not vaporizers? What is the % of this tax? (I read 58%)
I saw that its application had been temporarily suspended pending the decision of the Constitutional Court. When is that this suspension will end? When is the constitutional court will make its decision?
At this time in France, taxation is not our priority concern, although it remains a potential problem for the French association (AIDUCE). Currently we fear the transposition of PDT in particular the maximum volume of 10 ml, the limited dosage 20mg / ml, the requirement for sealed and child-protected tanks up to 2 ml (disappearance of drippers, rebuildable, etc.), and disappearance of variable voltage batteries and mods (constant delivery of nicotine).
The French association is waiting for transposition into French law _ and then attack to justice the French state. The Directive should be transposed before May 2016.
We do everything to inform all vapers on the TPD and organize national mobilizations (such as Flash mob of 11 January 2015) but we fear it is not enough unfortunately.
The French are wholeheartedly with Italian vapers.
With all my compassionate thoughts.
