Parliament passes vaping reforms following extensive AMA advocacy

The Parliament passed vaping reforms to protect Australians from e-cigarette harms, banning their domestic manufacture, supply, and advertisement. Vapes can now be sold as schedule 3 medicine with stricter controls. The AMA played a key role in advocating for these reforms, successfully influencing the passing of the legislation. The AMA criticized the National Party's proposal to impose an excise on vapes and actively engaged with MPs, Senators, and media to support the reforms. The Therapeutic Goods Administration provides updates on vaping reforms on its Vaping Hub.
