With liquid nicotine on the prescription list, Australia’s e-cigarette rules will change significantly next year, according to 7 news.
Health minister Greg Hunt said the import of liquid nicotine would require medical approval from 1 October 2021.
At present, the sale of electronic cigarettes containing nicotine is illegal in all of Australia. In addition to Nan’ao, it is also illegal to hold e-cigarettes without a medical prescription.
Hunt said the changes will help prevent teenagers from becoming addicted to e-cigarettes and nicotine. This regulation follows the recommendations of the therapeutic supplies Administration (TGA).
From September 1 this year, the Australian government raised the tobacco consumption tax again by 12.5%.
Now, the important reform of e-cigarettes announced by the government also means that “you may feel more pressure, but you have no right to breathe”.
