MINISTER BUTLER HAS ANNOUNCED a plan to ban all (legal and non-legal) disposable vaping products in Australia, because of widespread use by young people. The proposed ban has been widely criticised by leading experts. It will not stop illegal imports and is likely to increase smoking. Black market disposables have flooded the Australian market. An estimated 90-100 million devices are imported each year by criminal syndicates from China and are freely sold from retail outlets, social media and online to adults and young people.
