Finally, the publishment of the Law brings with it a series of precedents that the Federal Government itself has been implementing, among which the most recent is the decree prohibiting the commercialization of Electronic Cigarettes in any part of the country; a decree that was published in the Federal Official Gazette just a few days ago (May 31, 2022).

This Law shall take enter within 180 days after its publication in the DOF.
