Butler set to effectively ban all refillable vaping products

IN A MAJOR ESCALATION of the crackdown on vaping, it appears likely that Health Minister Mark Butler will effectively ban refillable vaping devices as well as disposables. Only closed pod systems will be legally available in Australia with a prescription from a pharmacy. The news was leaked indirectly in a recent blog by Emeritus Professor Simon Chapman, one of the Minister's inner advisers. "Chapman explained that under the new laws, the only legal nicotine vaping products will be sealed (closed) pod systems "where the liquid containing nicotine and flavouring chemicals and the battery that heats and vapourises the liquid will be sealed"
