    So I spoke to the Victorian Police today...

    Called into the cop shop to have a document certified, and although this may be seen as "poking the bear", I decided to tactfully see what the low down was....I pulled out my Provari, here's a loose version of the convo:

    Me - So tell me, do you know what this is? (Plonks Provari on counter)

    Policeman - Um....what is THAT?!!

    Me - This is an e cigarette!

    Policeman - Never heard of it. How does it work (by this stage he's holding it and I'm desperate to get it back) just as another policeman walks out and they both stand there fascinated by this thing....

    So, I start explaining all about it and how it works and the research I've done on the laws and the whole "import 3 maths supply but can't use it in the device" thing. Then they asked me if I had nicotine in the liquid...."no way!!" I answered.....they both laughed. Then, they asked me to demonstrate it!!


    I said "hang on, if I do, you can't arrest me cause YOUVE asked me to show you yes?".....mind you this whole time we were all having a bit of a laugh etc and I could tell they were not looking for anything to nab me on....so I had a couple of vapes. They were amazed, and impressed. One of them told me his wife smokes and he wants to know more so he can get her a PV haha....gave him a Vapebar card.

    Anyway so basically they said to me they had no idea of what the laws are regarding Ecigarettes and Nicotine liquid. All they could liken it to was the situation with bongs and crack pipes and the like, but had no idea if I was breaking the law or not.....and in the end one of them said what I was hoping he would say :

    "We have way more important policing to be doing instead of booking someone who's trying to quit smoking, so don't worry about it too much". They were really nice blokes and definitely put my mind at ease to an extent.

    Of course....they don't make the rules though, so I don't think my convo with them really means much at all, but thought I'd share it here for anyone interested.

    If anyone would like a photo of Jimmy's testicles I hear NASA is still exploring the footage. Apparently, you can see them from space.

    (Nice one Jimmy).

    Off topic, I got stopped by the QLD police the other day for pushing two bikes. I guess that does look a little suss though. They were cool. Did the usual history check. Wish I had my PV on me

    They may have been freindly and all but you can bet your life if they thought they could nab you for it they wouldve had you locked up quicker than you could say "Noooo My Provariiii" ....................

    LMFAO weapon!

    You should have agreed with them & said "yeah this is my Provarisaber, when I press this button the laser shoots out to look like a lightsaber"

    Freaking morons.

    All VicPol cares about is generating revenue.

    I once had a cop car on the opposite direction did a U turn and speed up to pull me over, he then said "random breath test mate".
    The F***, of course it's random hey, you just did a U turn for me and it's random?

    Mind you it's on Lygon st 40kmh zone and driving a sports car is the only reason they pull me over.

    It was the biomech mod with a kayfun with clear window and sanded down drip tip on top so it does actually look like some type of massive syringe or a weird bong but the reaction was one of the most hostile I've had from the police.
