    Why are Canadians so different to Australians

    Something that has been troubling me for a few days:

    Canada is in a similar situation to Australia, if not worse because imports are being seized by Health Canada/Customs.

    BUT vendors openly or covertly sell nicotine from Canada and have a trade association. In Australia no vendors sell e-liquid from Australia and, unless I've missed something, have no trade association.

    Why do you think we are behaving so differently? For those who know, what would be the penalty if a vendor sold nicotine containing e-liquid within Australia?

    I've heard 8 grand being bandied around, which I thought was the penalty for selling nic in aus? we aussie seem to be rather a laid back mob, some might even say apathetic. some nationalities will protest and demonstrate and get all het up about things, but we just seem to sit and grumble a lot and do nothing. maybe that's the difference?

    Moose for one thing.
    Our coppers generally don't dress like the day-after-mardi-gras
    It's warmer here

    Oh, and we have more rules per person than anywhere this side of N Korea, and Nicotine is a schedule 9? poison that has a BUNCH or rules around it.

    I believe it's schedule 7 - which would be appropriate for pure nicotine as a pesticide definitely - which lumps it in with arsenic and other extremely dangerous poisons, not an accurate schedule for what I'm holding in my hand; 12mg nicotine e-liquid which would maybe make me vomit and have an awful headache if accidentally swigged a bit (but why on earth would I do that!?)

    7, yes schedule 7. No idea what I was thinking. My favourites are further up the list.
    You'd really have to drink it quickly and try very hard to keep it down to hurt.
    It'd be far more unfair if we didn't have some nic 25l in the freezer and a few hundreds of flavours to mix it with.

    Panadol overdose is FAR more likely than nic od.

    We don't have whale eating Eskimos in Oz, that may be part of it...

    I'm Canadian/Australian and my brother has a ecig business in Canada, Its legal to sell with nic in Canada, but its illegal to import it. basically local nic only. Its also legal to have up to 8 grams of weed on you, and its legal for women to go topless and walk down the street, which they do this time of the year.

    so, the question should be, why aren't we all in canada right now?


    nic, weed, and tits...and my few days in toronto gave me the feeling it had the same kind of vibe as melbourne.
