    "On January the 8th, several elements of Israel's law prohibiting advertising of tobacco and smoking products came into effect. Among these were requirements that tobacco products and smoking products (including e-cigarettes, heat not burn products like IQOS, and non-tobacco products designed for smoking like shisha) be sold in generic packages.

    In addition to plain packaging, the new law requires larger health warnings on cigarettes (65%) and on smoking products (30%). In September 2018, shortly after JUUL entered the market, Israel prohibited nicotine concentrations above 20 mg / ml ...

    Israel is the first country to require generic packaging of e-cigarettes, although other jurisdictions are proposing to follow suit.

    Thanks @Hooked

    Very interesting
    In the case of vaping products I wonder who does the new packaging? Is it the manufacturer or the importer/distributor in country?

    This piques my interest because I go to Israel at least once a year. I'm due for the next trip in March. I wonder how this affects travelling to Israel with my gear.
