    Proposed changes to ACT legislation

    The Smoke-Free Legislation Amendment Bill 2016 was tabled in the ACT parliament yesterday and is now up at ACT legislation register - Smoke-Free Legislation Amendment Bill 2016 - main page

    This Act amends the following legislation:
    · Smoke-Free Public Places Act 2003
    · Smoking in Cars with Children (Prohibition) Act 2011
    · Tobacco Act 1927.
    Note This Act also amends other legislation (see sch 1).

    And, perhaps more usefully, the explanatory statment is at ACT legislation register - explanatory statement - main page

    I don't think it's going to be cheerful reading.

    I hope someone who lives in the ACT is on here and speaks to their local member, data in hand, to inform them of the mistakes they are making.

    It's a perception thing unfortunately. And this isn't the right way to go about changing perception

    If someone can write me a well articulated argument against this I'm happy to slap my local member with it
    I'm just time poor and have never gone into battle against the government before.

    For this Act, smoke means—
    13 (a) smoke from an ignited smoking product; or
    14 (b) vapour from a personal vaporiser.

    Well, I read the whole thing and the bit that most concerns me is that the Minister can prohibit the use of a PV is the vapour smells sweet, fruity or confectionary-like. That bit can eff right off.

    Also it's not clear if e-juice (0mg Nic) counts as a 'smoking related product' or not. It talks about atties, batteries, coils and mods etc, but not juice.

    The whole thing is pretty ridiculous, and seems to be based on the premise that vaping is a 'gateway' to tobacco use, and will encourage kids and non-smokers to take up smoking cigarettes. I think the opposite is true.

    From Clause 8 Section 5B (3)

    [...that a person does not commit an offence for smoking in a legislated smoke-free area if they are merely holding a personal vaporiser so that they can deactivate it or remove it from the venue. For example, a security guard or authorised officer to whom a personal vaporiser has been surrendered is not considered to be smoking if they hold the personal vaporiser for the purposes of turning it off and/or removing it from a smoke-free area.]

    Oh thank heavens, to think (with an expanding of the definition of smoking) an authorised officer could be caught up with smokers handling an item that was surrendered but not deactivated, I dislike ambiguity, new offences are being committed
