Legal to bring my IQOS (heated tobacco device) in Thailand?

Hi guys!

There is a lot of confusion over the Internet regarding the legality of IQOS in Thailand, so I was thinking I would ask here for anyone who had a recent experience with this heated tobacco device.

Does anyone know if it is legal to bring it with me in Thailand?

Your help will be much appreciated! thank you!

I certainly wouldn't risk it as different or not I would not want to be arguing the point in a Thai court with a maximum penalty of 10 years if I lose. Of course if you want to risk it that is up to you.

If it is tobacco so effectively you are smoking anyway why not just bring cigarettes or rolling tobacco and papers and smoke that instead.
