Still Failing in Australia

The Australian Association of Convenience Stores criticizes the country's failing anti-vaping laws, leading to black market crimes. Research shows concerns from Australian parents about unregulated vapes, calling for a model like alcohol and tobacco regulations. Most voters support adult-only vape regulation similar to tobacco. Despite evidence that banning vapes doesn't prevent youth access, the government persists. The CEO blames Health Minister Mark Butler for the black market surge and youth crisis. AACS urges lawmakers to reject legislation worsening the situation and implement strict regulation like alcohol and tobacco. The current approach leads to crime escalation and should not heed opponents like Emily Banks and Simon Chapman.
