    SMH 4/5/15 Ecigs– new age cancer sticks or legit nicotine replacement devices?

    "Electronic cigarettes – new age cancer sticks or legit nicotine replacement devices?

    The jury's out. But one thing's for sure, there's money to be made in this niche industry.

    In Britain, the e-cigarette industry is forecast to be worth $23 billion by 2023.

    In the United States, where the market has hit the $1.5 billion mark, sales are set to increase almost 25 per cent annually until 2018.

    Yet, Australian businesses hoping to light up the local market may miss out. Laws across Australia are irregular at best and downright confusing at worst.

    Good article. But she seemed a bit confused about the law in QLD?

    I did laugh at this bit though; "They promise everything from "enhanced airflow" to "a sexy smooth drip tip"

    A sexy smooth drip tip? Can't say I've heard that one before! But it's good she said the average starter kit ranges between $45 and $75. Readers who are thinking of trying vaping are less likely to be ripped off by the dodgy over-priced vendors.

    I keep reading "there's gold in them thar hills" vape shop stories, and yet so many vendors seem to disappear.

    Compared to tobacco and alcohol, vaping is still small change. It's a minority of ex smokers who are already a minority of the overall population.
