Vape blitz leads to seizure of thousands of illegal e-cigarettes containing nicotine in SA

Nearly 5,000 vapes have been seized in a crackdown on illegal e-cigarettes by South Australian health authorities, who inspected 180 businesses across the state. Earlier this year, the SA government introduced new licensing conditions on vaping products and a two-month "enforcement blitz" to stamp out the sale of vapes containing nicotine, which are increasingly being accessed by young people. The first published results of the crackdown have revealed 4,907 vapes were seized in SA, of which 4,536 contained nicotine.
