    Nicotine Imports Makes News on Channel 9 Brisbane

    It looks like Channel 9 Brisbane intend to air a report on the crackdown on imports of nicotine tomorow night 4/5/11 in the News at 6pm. The advert clearly shows products in Totally Wicked's distinctive packaging and shows a doctor say 10mg of nicotine is enough to kill a child.



    Here is the link for the story as it was aired, Thank you Stoney for a another job well done

    In about 19 hours from now Channel 9 Brisbane, in Queensland, Australia, intends to air a report on the importing of deadly nicotine through customs, and clearly shows your distinctive logo on a large shipment of products that have been opened. A Doctor in the advertisment says it only takes 10mg of nicotine to kill a child.

    I am not sure what you can do aside from getting an injuction but thought you should at least have a chance to stop them hurting your good name with sensationalized claims.

    their phone number is 61 73214 9999

    Well, that's all kinds of suck. I don't suppose they will mention the US Supreme Court ruling at all.

    Or how many deaths have been attributed to e-juice?

    Might pay to send that email to the US arm of Totally Wicked as well, Americans love lawyering the **** out of people. Not sure how much good that will do since it's another country and they could just pull the TW images.

    Now now guys, lets not act surprised that the media loves to run a good scare campaign.

    Other things though that I think should be included the report that could kill your child.

    Bleach
    Cigarettes
    Alcohol
    Rat Poison
    Bleach.

    Feel free to add to the list.

    If anybody is able to record the news story, or provide a link, (better yet, get the story on YouTube) I'd be more than happy to post a tear apart afterwards.

    Nice work with the little to Totally Wicked, GP - great move.

    Nice catch thanks Lothar, just sent it. Americans are more agressive in protecting their rights so might get better results.

    Yeah and wont the Media just play up TW stupid red Devil and Horns logo that they plaster on everything--
    Media arent and never have been interested in truthful reporting especially these days -they are interested in sensation and 2second sound bites and selling faux outrage.
