UK to prescribe vaping products for smoking cessation

The UK’s Medicine and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) has revised its smoking cessation guidance to include medically licensed vaping products as a prescribed treatment for smokers who wish to quit. Vaping product manufacturers will have to gain regulatory approval before their products can be prescribed by the NHS. Britain will become the first country in the world to prescribe vaping medical products.
