All over the news today is that the NHS approve of and are going to prescribe an “electronic cigarette” called Voke. What utter tosh!
An electronic cigarette? BBC
The UK medicines regulator has approved a brand of e-cigarette to be marketed as an aid to help people stop smoking.
The Voke is an INHALER. I jolly well hope it’s better than the old one, because that was pretty awful.
An inhaler is NOT an electronic cigarette.
Voke – an innovative nicotine inhaler
In September 2014, the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) in the UK granted Nicoventures’ development partner Kind Consumer a medicines licence for Voke, an innovative nicotine inhaler.
The licence demonstrates our continued commitment to harm reduction by offering adult smokers a choice of alternative products to conventional cigarettes.Voke is activated by the user inhaling a nicotine vapour via a valve in the device. No heat or combustion is involved, and Voke doesn’t require a battery or other energy source.
