    NSW Labor would ban 'vaping' in smoke-free zones

    "NSW Labor says it will outlaw advertising for electronic cigarettes and ban them in non-smoking areas if it is elected to power.

    ...

    Electronic cigarette advertising and "vaping" in enclosed spaces would be banned under a NSW Labor government, in a policy to be outlined on Sunday.

    Opposition health spokesman Walt Secord said NSW Labor is proposing the most comprehensive controls on e-cigarettes in Australia, amid alarm over the rapid growth in use of the devices, and the potential risk to children.

    Public health groups are concerned that e-cigarettes are being displayed on shop counters in bright colours, often in the shape of lipsticks or pens, with fruit flavours.

    Labor, if elected, would restrict the promotion and retail display of e-cigarettes to keep them out of sight, matching tobacco restrictions..."

    An audit by NSW Health found 70 per cent of e-liquids sold in NSW shops contained nicotine, even though they weren't labelled as such.

    Now i find that hard to believe, what a bunch of crap

    I wouldn't make 70% of juice sold in NSW as they quoted but maybe 70% of some small brick and morter vendors

    Nicotine on its own as not in cigarettes increases blood pressure. What I find hypocritical is that they don't have anything to say about patches or inhalers.

    because at the helm of the Heart Foundation ship is a group called the pharmaceutical roundtable, which is made up of representatives of big pharmaceutical companies.

    Pharmaceutical Roundtable

    Pharmaceutical companies don't like e-cigs because there is now conclusive evidence coming from Europe (and probably other places too but that's the only case I've currently read of) that NRT's made by big pharma are plummeting in sales.

    Go figure
