    Australia out of step. Who knew? " The conversation. Article.

    I am attempting to link to an article here. Australia's prohibition of e-cigarettes is out of step with the evidence

    Looks like that worked. Let me know if it did not.
    Article is about OS research and trends that are pro vaping, but not reflected in Australian law/media/culture.

    Interesting read,
    sadly its to smart for our current politicians for them to understand, it needs to be dumbed down to their IQ level.

    The only IQ lower than the politicians is that of the people who voted them in.

    That is not a bad idea actually. If only I had the time and energy.

    Chapman was there, putting his oar in. So was I but SC didn't bother replying to my posts. Too hard I guess.
    One of the replies to SC was removed (not mine) and they closed the discussion. If I'd known they were going to close it so fast I would have written more.

    Wondering if the silence is in part something to do with the law suit with the TGA - some pretty powerful interests involved not least of all the corporate libertarians which murdoch is a part of (IPA) and is funded also by both big tobacco and pharma

    Could you imagine what winning this law suit would be worth in Australia with the Tobacco taxes going up? Neither can I - esp if they cut out the competition - but no wonder the mainstream press is quiet - or anti vaping- follow the money

    It is not unique to Australia. "IT IS THE CIGARETTE MONEY TALKING"
    So called approve increase in price goes to lobbying. Lobbying is not corruption. LOL
