    NSW bans sale of e-cigarettes to people aged under 18

    New laws coming into force today have banned the sale of electronic cigarettes to anyone under the age of 18 in NSW.
    A ban on vaping in cars and restrictions on the advertising and display of the devices will come into effect in December.

    "So, of what we know, it's not good and the rest of it is unknown."

    Ms Doyle said she had experienced the potentially harmful chemicals in e-cigarette vapours first hand.

    "I had the not so pleasant experience of standing on a train station not so long ago next to a young lady who was on her e-cigarette and there was massive vapour around it," she said.
    Oh poor Miss She doesn't have a clue! What we do know is fine what we don't know is what potential regulators should look at.

    However, Health Minister Jillian Skinner said she was not satisfied that is necessary.

    "The jury is still out on whether there isn't some case for some electronic cigarettes, particularly those that have very low or no tobacco in them, as a potential harm minimisation or stop smoking aid," she said.
    Haha none have tobacco in them but at least she is leaning our way.




    “Today a young man on acid realized that all matter is merely energy condensed to a slow vibration, that we are all one consciousness experiencing itself subjectively, there is no such thing as death, life is only a dream, and we are the imagination of ourselves. Here's Tom with the Weather.”

    While I personally don't disagree with the sale to minors aspect, the attitude in Public Health & Government of "we dont know... therefore its bad " is flabbergasting and just damned lazy... it is taking the path of least resistance to fit in with a totally different agenda ( tobacco and ANTZ aims) If a Dept is aiming to legislate using "Science" as a pivotal tool , then it has a duty to not apply "guesses" and "speculation" when legislating... FFS imagine what would happen if Dept of Sustainability argued that an excess of water is fatal , therefore we should prevent peoples access to it in large amounts and force them to get prescriptions for 2 litres a day as a safe limit ...and water toxicity IS proven! The research is in !

    Legislation like this is solely about "control" and grant investment/justification/keeping the Tobacco Gravy Train $$'s happening and has very little to do with Public Health

    I for one personally do not believe Vaping is "Safe" Just as I do not believe anything is "Safe" Life by its very presence means ANYTHING is either good or bad for us depending on exposure, but I do believe from personal experience over the last 8 years that Vaping is better for me than Smoking, and more effective than any other form of NRT for me personally , and it has prevented me from smoking tobacco for many years, something NONE of their agenda ever did for me.


    ( oh and moving it to the political sub-forum lol )

    Im happy with the ban to be applied to under 18,s but im totally lost as to bans re vaping in cars .
    If the ban on vaping in cars is applied only as (per current legislation re tobacco smoking with children in vehicle )then YES it would have my vote .
    Any variation to above current applied legislation would be a total imposition and intrusion and denial of my personal rights IMO.
    Lets just wait and see .

    Poor Ms Doyle ,i wonder if she eats outdoors or has her coffee sitting outside at cafe,s whilst she sucks up the exhaust fumes from passing vehicles (thats gotta be real healthy living ).

    Has anyone seen the reasoning behind banning vaping in cars? Is it just with under 16s present, or in all circumstances?

    I would imagine that it is more to do with the fact smoking is banned in cars with minors and would make policing it very difficult as its hard to tell the difference from a distance.

    I think its good that vaping sales to minors has been banned
    one less pointless argument to have with the clueless anti vapers
