    SMH Article - "Deadly nicotine blows its way into e-cigarettes"

    Deadly nicotine blows its way into e-cigarettes

    I'm really confused by this bit towards the end:

    The Department of Health spokesman said on Friday there was ''no loophole'' allowing a flood of nicotine into Australia. ''Personal importation is permitted under the Therapeutic Goods Regulation 1989 under very specific circumstances, which includes that a person attempting to import nicotine must have a prescription from their doctor.''

    Yeah that part is news to me as well. I was surprised so many shops were selling nic! Although some was offered to me in NSW Tweed heads a few weeks back. I had an ego twist with me and a ego cc - Shop keeper tells me its an old model. He was selling some dodgy 510's.

    well would you look at that. an investigative journo that actually investigates...

    it's be interest to see the rest of the
    ''Not everybody is doing the wrong thing.
    bit.

    and
    A NSW Health spokesman confirmed that to date no person had been provided with a licence to supply nicotine-based e-liquids, and that people caught ''supplying'' or ''using'' the products faced prosecution.
    is a bit messy. but other than that. not bad...

    Emphasized the real concern I have. Also, this is the same "senior investigative reporter" who couldn't get his facts right as to who was funding a study into e-cgis at the UoQ. Yay, incompetence!

    Edit:
    Yes, if idiots weren't selling nic out of their shops then things wouldn't be an issue. This is kind of what we were all afraid of isn't it? Idiots ruining shit for everyone and putting a darker cloud over us.

    This bloke will be alright though.

    Sorry to point out the obvious here , but it looks to me like someone is jumping in bed with the media in the interest of turning an extra dollar . A very dangerous move
