Not banned. They were being marketed under the Poisons Act, which means less tax on BAT. Kagwe insisted they have to be marketed and sold as tobacco products under the Tobbaco Control Act, meaning more tax, health warnings like in cigarettes, and payment of solatium (like tax) to the Ministry of Health. The issue is still under appeal to be heard on Feb. if appeal fails, BAT will just accept and charge more for the product.
