    Confused over personal nicotine use and laws

    In an effort to clarify the latest regulations for importing nicotine and devices into Australia, I once again contacted the commonwealth health department. I was told that I cannot import nicotine into NSW unless I have a prescription, and that the information on the TGA website is incorrect.

    Does anyone actually have a prescription for Nic and if so, is it hard to obtain?

    Nicotine is not really addictive, it's all in your head

    I honestly cannot see a doctor blindly writing out a prescription for 3 mths worth of Nic (apparently the max allowed) how would this doctor quantify 3mths? who would guarantee to helath dept. that you are mixing it EXACTLY how prescribed? What entity here in Australia can certify the Nic you are getting and how would a doctor, who has no knowledge of this prescribe an amount...based on which calculations?

    Just throwing questions out there that I would be curious to know the replies to... which i know I will not get... well i think not

    Now maybe someone out there has had a prescription for this but I have never heard of one actually been done.
    I will be travelling in time, please leave a message and I will get back to you last week.

    I'm curious too as I was told that while one can import nicotine it is illegal to vape it in ALL states.
    So confused over all the ambiguity; perhaps it's accidently on purpose?

    A little civil disobedience now and again never hurt anyone. If you want to follow the law, put down your PV and go buy yourselves a pack of smokes.

    But the question remains is it the law, or the "law"?

    Fedex just dropped my 1 litre of Nic off without a problem. The Law is the Law,but how Lawful that Law is , well ,,,, we should just leave it up to the Law
