New Laws to Crack Down on Vaping


Australia has introduced tough new laws cracking down on the illegal use and sale of nicotine vaping products.

From today it is illegal to purchase products such as nicotine e-cigarettes from overseas without a prescription.

Previously people had been able to import up to three months worth without seeing a GP.

Vaping advocates believe the changes are a “slap in the face” to locals who use the products.

The Council on Smoking and Health argues it’s a positive step to stop children from picking up the habit.
