Are vapes legal?

Share

In episode 2 of our investigiative series, Understanding Vaping, we explore the legal loopholes that industry and manufacturers exploit to keep vapes and e-cigarettes for sale on the shelves. 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? We also head to Parliament House to hear from those trying to crack down on vapes, and those trying to get them legalised.

You can catch up with episode 1 here.
