    Baird Government to ban e-cigarette sales to children

    Terrible scare mongering article but IMO good outcome. Ban sales to under 18's only.

    "E-cigarettes will be banned from sale to minors in NSW, including "e-juice" vaporisers with fruit flavours, Health Minister Jillian Skinner will pledge on Sunday."

    and not what the Cancer Council has lobbied for.

    "The Cancer Council Australia director of public policy Paul Grogan has previously told the Sun-Herald there should be a blanket ban on the devices and governments should be extremely suspicious of claims by tobacco companies that e-cigarettes can help consumers quite smoking."

    good. think of the children.
    amount saved by not smoking: $lots
    amount spent on vaping: $not enough

    Maybe they realise that the 20% of voters that smoke are also voters, HEY CAMPBELL?

    Is it mandatory for public health officials to have superior abilities to selectively ignore research findings.

    Hey Paul, I have a blunt axe and only want one side of it ground very sharp.

    Something must be wrong with me or I didn't get the memo where it said that once you turn 18 years old and you're an Adult, you no longer are supposed to like lollies, desserts, soft drinks, baked goods, etc.

    What a crock and they all seem to play this same card. Ludicrous!!! It makes my blood boil !!!!!

    If thats all they are going to do im all for it.
    What ever helps them sleep at night, so they don't bring the almighty ban hammer down on the rest of us.

    I think this will be a game were we need to take the small concessions like this one.
    Untill we get enough research for the end game victory

    also on last nights news was the large increase in drug use in schools across aust.
    this is where the govt do-gooders should be pushing for assistance rather than decreasing it.

    Surely e-cig shops weren't selling stuff to toddlers?
    I'm not to sure about tobacconists.

    Did anyone in Sydney see this poll. Apparently 70% want vaping banned in public.

    Poll shows 70 per cent want e-cigarrette vaping banned in public

    I guess it's no big deal, you do have the occasional vendors who would make a buck out of anyone and kids do think that since they cannot buy a cigarette until they are 18 but they can easily get a vapouriser to look cool. Then I am all for the ban for children under 18, they would not be legally able to smoke anyway and since we should advertise it as an alternative to smoking then we shouldn't sell to children who shouldn't even be smoking.
