    Hervey Bay authorities cracking down on illegal e-cigarettes

    A friend just alerted me to this: Hervey Bay authorities cracking down on illegal e-cigarettes | Fraser Coast Chronicle

    Of particular interest, is this statment: " There are no legal ways of importing e-cigarettes containing nicotine into Queensland.

    Residents can surrender their liquid nicotine products to their local community pharmacy for destruction."

    What a crock of pineapple.

    Might have something to do with that wonderful Doyen of facebook and her empire of cigalike distribution she had going on there .... in which case they all WERE illegal

    the key in that whole story is illegal/importing/electronic cigarettes WITH nicotine

    Nothing to do with us Law Abiding Vapers... Smug grin ... I hope they raided her and threw the book at her

    ( this was the little lady a while back tried to storm AVF after plying her wares on facebook . Bad Bad lady )

    I literally just finished watching a story on WIN news about ecigs being illegal, poisonous and to hand your ejuice in to pharmacies for disposal.

    I should say though that Hervey Bay has a pretty big ecig business. The one woman I spoke to down there admitted to me that she regularly imports 300 bottles of 50ml per month!

    Not good, I have had a lot of people coming up to me recently, telling me how bad they are. For real, do you have any concept of cigarettes???

    Or her hubby

    Innocent housewives make the best marketers on social media ( " but I am just a struggling parent making ends meet .... ")


    I agree this is a bad thing for vaping , but it was GOING to happen ... these cowboys left the coppers and feds no choice ... Good to see they are being charged under the correct act tho ... The black market ,, esp in QLD will not be happy .... legitimate sellers had raids a while back to make sure they were on the up and up ... seems the authorities are now moving in the RIGHT direction
    IMO of course

    Well by the sounds of it they were selling nic which is illegal right now yes. But telling people who may not have even been aware of the law to hand in nic for destruction? And the huge false statement about importation is a total lie. Obviously they've done no research on it
