The idea was a good one - about political reforms that don't get the results those in power intended.

Political decisions taken with good intentions often have unforeseen consequences. The government's investigators are proposing to ban all flavours in e-cigarettes and e-liquids from May 2022. There are many indications that this well-intentioned proposal will not lead to any health benefits. You can read about this and other examples of how unforeseen consequences have led to unintended outcomes in Stefan Mathisson's report.

Stefan Mathisson runs the online magazine Vejpkollen, which monitors the world of e-cigarettes and vaping in Sweden. The magazine examines legislation, debates and highlights issues relevant to users, companies, authorities and politicians working in the field.
