    LETTER REGARDING QLD HEALTH AND THE LAWS THEY ARE USING
    PUBLISHED AS DISCUSSED IN SAID PHONE CONVERSATION
    Recieved on 4/05/11



    Dear Ms ********

    Further to our phone conversation on 27 April, 2011 and in answer to your queries regarding electronic cigarettes, I advise the following:

    Seizures of nicotine liquid by Queensland Health were undertaken using Powers to seize under the Health Act 1937. This is because nicotine is classified as a Schedule 7 poison under the Standard for the Uniform Scheduling of Medicines and Poisons and is therefore a regulated poison under the Health (Drugs and Poisons) Regulation 1996.
    To my knowledge, the Tobacco and Other Smoking Products Act 1998 will be amended in the near future to include electronic cigarettes, whether they contain nicotine or not, the new legislation will render it illegal sell these cigarettes.
    I advise that this Unit is unable to respond to your concerns regarding this new legislation, I advise that you can voice your concerns to the Minister using the following contact details:

    Hon Geoff Wilson MP
    Member for Ferny Grove
    Minister for Health
    Level 19
    147-163 Charlotte Street

    fax: 322 94731

    Thank you for your enquiry.

    Good idea, although correspondence in itself may be difficult to contain due to the length. I have asked Jato to setup a specific subforum for Political and Legislative news so we can try and contain the information. But i like the idea of a single thread with info...
