    Use of Nicotine in an e-cig is illegal in Victoria apparently...

    From the Quitline website

    Can I use e-cigarettes to help me quit? - Quit Victoria

    lol I still like the idea that you can use pills that muck with your brain chemistry to quit and you can eat nicotine and breath it and put it on your skin with added extras..

    but ecigs are frowned apon? Makes no sense

    "How do you know Iím mad?" said Alice.
    "You must be," said the Cat, "or you wouldnít have come here.Ē

    link from the linked health dept, which is official government and the best actually official refernce I've seen

    In Victoria it is illegal to manufacture, sell, supply, purchase or otherwise obtain, possess or use an electronic cigarette or cartridge containing nicotine.



    The prohibition applies to electronic cigarettes obtained from anywhere within Australia as well as overseas, whether over the internet or by other means.

    Here's the link 'Electronic cigarettes containing nicotine are prohibited in Victoria'

    However, I thought we'd already been through this Victorian Issue a while ago?

    Never said I was friggin perfect LOL

    OK in short ... VicQuitline is speaking out their arse , there are no legislative links or laws which make it illegal to vape with nicotine in Victoria ... the Quit site basically toes the corporate line and says "m'kay they are bad m'kay" but there is no basis in fact for it .... else the relevant statutes would be referred to or linked

    My opinion only

    Edit if I remember correctly they base it on the Therapeutic goods act .. if no therapeutic claims are made , it does NOT fall under the act
