This would only affect the purchase of the e-juice right, not necessarily the delivery systems?
My computer wouldn't let me share to FB, said the link was unsafe.
At least they are admitting the tax is trying to replace lost revenues due to declining cigarette sales! Money before health, the government has no shame! They would rather take your dough and have you die early, they can care less. Just Terrible, lets see whats in store for us here in the states!
I believe they are heading towards the same direction here in Malaysia..by fear mongering especially..saying ecig more dangerous than convensional cig..sadly its working..1 of my coworker suddenly yelled at me about smoking ecig when she saw me walking around holding 1..its like fear of the unknown

Unfortunately the tax is going to affect not just juices but also devices and - brace yourselves - batteries!
Anyway the law should keep ecig market "free", so I think I'll keep on buying from the rest of the EU
If this is not the most stupid law I've ever seen, it's close.
I wonder if that applies to devices as well as e-liquids? It looks like vaping is about to become as or even more expensive than smoking in Italy - great job on THR there *sigh*.
I wonder which EU members will follow suit? That kind of tax revenue's just waaay too tempting...
*Edit* Don't know if this is right, but according to what I could find, the tax on cigarettes in Italy is only (!) 58.4% - kinda obvious the message the Italian government is sending to vapers eh? Start smoking
*Edit 2* Smoove's current price for e-liquid with nicotine is 6 Euros ($8.15) - I believe that's already being taxed at the tobacco rate of 58.4% since no-nic liquid is only 4 Euros ($5.43) - this tax hike will put the price of a 10ml bottle up to around 7.2 Euros ($9.78).
*Edit 3* Oh, and just for the sake of comparison, the approximate cost of a packet of cigarettes in Italy is 4.5 Euros ($6.12).
