Taking on Big Tobacco to protect our kids from vapes

The Albanese Government has implemented world-leading reforms to address the rising concern of vaping among young Australians. Starting with the ban on importing disposable, single-use vapes, further changes will be implemented in March. Restrictions on flavors, reduction in nicotine concentration, and the use of pharmaceutical packaging aim to make vapes less appealing to young people. New laws will make it illegal to produce, advertise, or sell single-use disposable or non-therapeutic vapes nationwide. The goal is to reduce the availability and accessibility of vaping products and ensure that they are only obtainable from pharmacies for therapeutic purposes.

13.00% of the adult population are current smokers. There are approximately 2.6 million current smokers in Australia 15.20% of men are current smokers but only 10.90% of women.
