Nationals call for an end to Australia’s prescription-only rule for e-cig sales

Australia’s National Party says shops should be able to sell nicotine-containing e-cigarettes without prescription because youth vaping rates continue to rise even though buying non-prescribed non-nicotine vapes is illegal. That’s the new position taken by the conservative of Australia.

However, critics say permitting non-prescription sales would not solve and in fact worsen the rise in youth vaping as a majority of young users get their supplies from adult friends and relatives, and this avenue would be made easier by allowing non-prescription sales.
