    Current status on Australian BANNING of e-cigs?

    OBVIOUSLY, people going to e-cigarettes is HURTING our governments BADLY from lost tobacco revenue!
    Bet they end up banning them everywhere, and most of us will go back to cigarettes! Sad smile

    Electronic cigarettes: the truth behind the smoke and mirrors

    What is the latest update on this?

    SORRY if this question or discussion has been posted elsewhere (as I'm guessing it HAS but I can't find it)

    Sydney University lecturer in public health Dr Becky Freeman agrees: ''The reality is, most people who quit smoking don't need any quitting aid, be that gum, patches or e-cigarettes … they wake up one day and think 'Yes, I'm done with this'.''

    my brain
    it hurts

    - Stock up on nic
    - Stock up on mods (regulated and unregulated)
    - Stock up on RDA's and RBA's
    - Learn to rebuild if you don't know how to (youtube)

    .....It seems only a matter of time that they will be banned. Best to be prepared just in case. Piece of mind.

    Note: $$$ saved is not true as I now spend it all (plus more) on vaping gear

    I have too many conversations like this
    ANTZ/Vape Naysayer: "Nicotine is bad for you! You need to quit!" Actually, nicotine is comparable to caffeine, why don't you quit coffee?
    And watch as their eyes melt out of their face at the thought.

    Problem solved.

    The move contrasts with the approach of other places such as London, where a new cafe, The Vape Lab, not only sells e-cigarettes but rents them by the hour, offering 19 different flavours including bubblegum and custard.

    What's interesting about the idea that the rest of the country will do what WA did is that in queenslands new legislation they seem to have ruled out banning the sale of PVs in the same way WA did. With reference to Section 26ZS which bans the sale of objects that resemble a tobacco product they've added a clause (amendment clause 60) that says "is not a personal vaporiser"

    Poor Becky Freeman, now that Chapman has retired can she form her own opinion now and not just be a regurgitator of his opinions.

    Whatever... Just stock up on Nic.

    My advice... Vape assuming they will try and ban it at some point although I can't see that happening for some time (if ever).

    There is now way I will let some Gumbit idiot ruin this for me.
