How illegal are vapes?

We’ve known for some time that buying nicotine vapes over the counter has been illegal. So why are they still so easy to buy? And what’s slowed down progress on regulation? In Episode  Two we’ll look at the legal loopholes vape manufacturers have been using to keep their vapes on the shelves. We also head to Parliament House to hear from those trying to crack down on vapes, and those trying to get them legalised.
