    Cigarette bans and laws to apply to vaping?

    Hello vapers,

    Came across this on theage. What you guys think? Does this mean its the end for Victoria Vapers?

    Cigarette bans and laws to apply to vaping


    "It is already illegal to sell, supply, possess or use e-cigarettes that contain nicotine in Victoria but the new laws would also apply to non-nicotine smoking products."

    Nah man we have the same laws already in place in QLD. Well researched article though
    "which brings the electronic and water-based smoking devices under existing tobacco laws."

    hahaha

    No more than it means the end of tobacco, right now. It just makes it harder to vape in public places. Unfortunately it means that we get relegated to smoking areas, but what can you do?

    In practice I've found no one takes the slightest bit of notice or gives a rats A as long as you don't exhale any visible vapour.

    NicoPharm is an online service which can write you a prescription and send you nicotine from within Australia. If you feel uncomfortable about the legal aspects of possession of nicotine you could place an order with them. Ask for a digital copy of the prescription as the original has to be retained by the pharmacy when they fill it. This service has been checked out and is legitimate.

    Federal ban nicotine sales, use without prescription excluding cigarettes.
    States classify vaping as smoking.

    Smokers have got it easy compared to us vapers. At least the government are protecting their revenue.

    Surely if they are classifying Vaping as smoking/tobacco product then Aussie vendors should be able to sell nicotine in vape products, since govt excludes cigarettes/tobacco from the nicotine ban? How can they have it both ways? Either they say vaping is the same as smoking and therefore it's excluded from the nicotine ban, or Vaping is not the same as smoking and therefore nicotine is illegal but none of the other rules apply to Vaping. I don't get it.

    stealth vaping the only way to go now - to avoid the hassle - might bump up nic level and increase pg to get less vapour - might also have a look at using 18350 mode while out and about - its a mindless crazy situation that has been a long time coming

    Sent email to local member asking them to vote no. My last line was classifying vaping as smoking is the easy way to regulate, but not the right way.

    Strongly suggest everyone contact their local member.
