A health lobby group is calling for vape stores to be banned from operating within a kilometre of schools, Newshub reports. The number of retailers stocking vaping products has exploded in recent years and there’s concern about the growing number of school students using them. There are now over 700 vaping specialist stores around the country. “To put that into perspective there’s less than 300 KFC and McDonald’s stores around the country,” said Asthma and Respiratory Foundation CE Letitia Harding.
