    Petition response from the QLD Minister of Health

    Some of you may or may not have been aware of the petition that was going around trying to stop smoking legislation, but I'm sure most are aware of the outcome.

    Attached is the letter I received in response to our petition.2314-14.pdf

    Very disappointing.

    Pretty much exactly what I would expect to see.

    Are the TGA even going to look at them for approval, or would doing so let us all and everyone else know that they are effective?

    It's always bothered me that there are so many government departments saying they don't know if they if they are safe or effective at helping people stay away from cigarettes.

    Spend the money on research I say, or are they afraid of the outcome. Stupidity.

    So even if some product(s) are approved as therapeutic by the TGA, they will still be treated as a "tobacco product" rather than like approved "NRT" therapy and subject to restrictions that gum or patches aren't.

    If a Nicotine gum or patch user can use their therapy whenever and wherever they need it, why wouldn't I be able to use my PV under the same circumstances.

    From the letter.....
    "There are many legal, TGA approved nicotine replacement therapy products available to assist smokers to quit. If in future, electronic cigarette products receive TGA approval, then they may be legally purchased and used by smokers for the
    purpose of assisting smoking cessation. However, their purchase and use would be in accordance with proposed laws."

    It's boilerplate text they were obviously given, quite possibly directly from the TGA, I've seen it before somewhere with almost identical wording.

    If it becomes "widespread and visible", maybe it's time to allocate a bit of funds for proper research rather than play the safety card based on ignorance.
    Wouldn't it be appealing for a Health Minister to finally have a way to curb tobacco usage?

    I don't know about the QLD government, but science is not a trendy topic at the federal level these days.
