Not such a g’day for vapers and people who smoke down underneath as the federal government rubber stamps Australia’s harsh nicotine legislation.

On listening to the ruling, Australian advocacy group Legalise Vaping warned that lives can be misplaced as vapers return to smoking of their droves, and says the ‘gloves at the moment are off…

The brand new laws will imply that from October 2021, nicotine to be used in e-liquids can solely be obtained through a prescription, and with many medical doctors anti-vaping, the demand might not be met.

It wasn’t all dangerous information although, a transfer by the idiotic well being minister Greg Hunt – sure it rhymes – had tried to ban the importation of ALL vape units.

Nevertheless because of a ‘rebellion’ by 28 Coalitions MPs and senators, Hunt has backed away from the whole ban.

Liberal senator Hollie Hughes mentioned:

After the TGA and Hunt bulletins, it’s clear they’ve listened, reversed place on the regulation, and that’s now not on the desk.

We welcome that transfer.

We’ve gone from an try to limit vaping to what’s essentially the established order [on personal importation] with a step to legalisation by a nationwide prescription scheme.

One member of the TGA that supported the ban instructed the media there was no proof vaping helped people who smoke stop:

…whereas some particular person people who smoke have efficiently used nicotine e-cigarettes to stop smoking, proof at a inhabitants stage is missing.

With none onerous figures handy, I nonetheless name BS on that one…

Australian vape advocacy group, Legalise Vaping vowed to struggle on.

Spokesman Brian Marlow mentioned:

The TGA’S choice to implement an October 2021 prescription solely mannequin for nicotine vaping is a slap within the face for Australia’s 500,000 vapers who’ve accomplished the suitable factor and stop smoking for good.

On the current Senate Inquiry into Tobacco Hurt Discount, we heard from public well being specialists, tobacco therapy specialists, vapers and even frontline well being employees who all outlined why a prescription mannequin merely won’t ever work and can drive vapers again to smoking.

But the TGA has ignored the entire overwhelming proof and is pushing forward with a prescription mannequin anyway.

Legalise Vaping Australia is looking on all pro-vaping MPs to struggle again in opposition to the TGA’s choice and can be committing all assets in direction of this effort.

If my organisation has to mobilise 500,000 vapers in opposition to anti-vaping MPs, that’s what we’ll do.

The gloves are coming off.
