    And the latest undisputed king of tanks? The ''Piston Steampunk Mod'' built by SteampunkVapors in Albuquerque, New Mexico. At $700, it comes with its own hand-stitched leather case.

    LOL He had to plug his crap mod

    How did they get a Hana?!

    Just reading through and picking the article apart - apologies but it needs to be done

    "We just don't need e-cigarettes here,'' said Cancer Council Australia's director of advocacy, Paul Grogan, last week. ''There are already approved services for people who claim they need these types of things to quit tobacco.''
    I suggest that Mr. Grogan actually go and battle the addiction before making flippant comments such as this - patches, gum, lozenges, mini lozenges, zyban nor champix have not had the same effect as an APV with regards to smoking cessation.

    Users of e-cigarettes currently need to sidestep local restrictions and import ''personal amounts'' of nicotine from overseas
    I will dig up the Federal customs regs tomorrow, but from memory there is no restriction with regards to personal importation

    But while users may no longer be pumping up to 4000 different chemicals and carcinogens into their bloodstream, there remains no long-term studies about the actual health effects of filling lungs with vapour, morning, noon and night.
    Government (not the employees!!!) has no problem killing off the populace whilst taxing the sh!t out of them though...

    The changes follow a rise in complaints from US e-cigarette users that, according to Reuters, included trouble breathing, headache, cough, dizziness, sore throat, nosebleeds
    Enhanced bloodflow compared to a smoker perhaps?

    Van Heerden told Fairfax Media he wants to fight the decision, but will ultimately be guided by legal advice. ''What happens next has repercussions not just here, but internationally,'' said van Heerden. ''The sale of hardware has now been outlawed in Western Australia. Once that spreads to other states, importation will be classed as some form of loophole that also needs to be blocked. Then Australia will be known as the first country to have completely banned e-cigarettes. And, of course, other countries will follow.''


    ^^Does that guy have a mental disability?

    Sales of nic became illegal almost overnight. They can outlaw possession and therefore importation just as easy.
