    Are e-Cigarettes Legal in Australia - Ellie Divola

    I found this link posted on reddit:

    Inogen Oxygen | Are e-Cigarettes Legal in Australia?


    As far as I can tell the article is pretty incorrect with little research done.

    Quote: "It is also illegal to import nicotine liquid".

    Given it's on a website selling oxygen tank like devices, it's not overly surprising. No different than what you'd expect on a nicorette site, disparaging products other than NRT.

    Not really a news article or journalism, and the website appears half broken anyway.

    This website sell and hire out oxygen machines for COPD sufferers.

    They must have been getting lots of enquiries about e-cigs and were prompted to publish this.

    I find it cruel that they would scare people off vaping as an alternative to smoking, and recommend NRT and Champix as if their customers haven't already tried and failed with those. So these poor people who are very likely older smokers suffering from lung disease, and they would rather see them continue to smoke than use a nicotine vaporiser? What could be their motivation for that?

    I understand they can't recommend the products, but to scare people off them to the point of lying is just shockingly cruel.

    Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity.
