Today, the Heart Foundation applauds the Australian Government’s announcement of new laws aimed at preventing non-prescription e-cigarettes from being widely accessible, as well as improving and simplifying the present prescription process.
.
This new legislation will undoubtedly save lives. šŸ‘
.
The proposed changes will provide:
šŸ‘‰ Clearer and more accessible pathways for doctors and nurse practitioners to prescribe e-cigarettes.
šŸ‘‰ New minimum standards on flavours, colours and ingredients to make vapes less attractive to young people ā€“ seeing the end to fruit-flavoured vapes that are clearly targeted at kids.
šŸ‘‰ No more Australian manufacture, advertisement, supply and commercial possession of any non-prescription vape.
šŸ‘‰ Retailers will no longer be able to advertise, supply or commercially possess non-prescription and disposable vapes.
