Forest has reacted cautiously to calls for e-cigarettes to be made available to smokers via the NHS.

Forest has welcomed the Royal Society for Public Health's announcement that "nicotine is no more harmful to health than caffeine" but has warned the Society that smokers will not tolerate being forced to quit combustible cigarettes in favour of other nicotine delivery systems.

A survey of over 12,000 adult smokers released today reveals how consumers avoid paying the excessive taxation on tobacco products in the United Kingdom.

Forest has urged the Scottish Government not to ban smoking on hospital grounds and to adopt "light touch regulation" with regard to electronic cigarettes.
